the headlines should be “Graham Norton Fails To Do Pre-Interview Research”
just saw this on the Guardian, too. this has been common knowledge for a very long time. no idea why it’s suddenly being treated as breaking news.

when you’re older your heart turns to ice
and shut out what they say
they’re too dumb to mean it anyway”
Koz challenging anyone to “have a sense of humor” is the funniest thing i’ve heard in a long long time. i’m going to go listen to ‘Grace Cathedral Park’ and try to forget everything i’ve learned about this man’s personality in the past few days.
@homesickalien @blochead so very well said, both of you. blochead, i could’ve told the exact same story. it’s easy to be snarky when you’ve had your heart broken.

only in modern U2-land does “raw, naked and personal, to strip everything back” mean synth pads, click tracks, church bells, string arrangements, and seagull samples.
i love this cover. i’d really love to hear the album it belongs to!
