I'm happy to see so many positive comments about U2. Many times I say I like U2, people act like I said "Nickelback"
I got better. Nerve damage, balance issues, I'll never truly be the same, but I'm thankful I'm not much worse. It sounds so corny, but music has been so instrumental in my recovery, so I'll always stick up for U2. Glad you're doing well, and much like you, I've created a lot of positives from a truly crap situation.
"he started listening to folk and country and blues, genres that had been basically alien to him. (You can’t hear a ton of that rootsy influence in The Joshua Tree, but Bono says it’s there.)" Uh... What? Red Hill, Running to Stand Still, In God's Country... all these songs sound pretty folksy/rootsy, with U2's sound attached to them.
I had a massive stroke at a young age and I learned to walk again while listening to the intro of Where the Streets Have No Name. Stumbling while the organ played, shuffling mightily while the guitars came in. Gets me emotional to this day.
I don't remember this song at ALL yet I can vividly recall all the songs from about '77 onwards. So strange how some songs just don't seep into the collective consciousness, even though they were hits!
"A lot of his music is still pretty bad" Truth. He did always seem like a decent guy, outside of the music video persona...
I was thinking the same thing. I mean, I guess I could assume someone of Kendrick Lemar or Travis Scott stature could afford that, but dayum...
God, they are both amazing. Rarely a dud album by either of those bands. I don't think they are an ongoing concern amongst the general public there right? I wish they were legends. They deserve it.
In LA, the biggest alternative station rarely played the studio version of Everlong, it was always a live acoustic recording. The music director must've thought it was cool having an "exclusive" version, so one of the largest markets in radio just got used to hearing it that way.
I like Foo Fighters and Weezer, not all of the records (Foo Fighters are more consistent if you're into that sort of thing) but somehow it's frequently inferred that I should be ashamed. I enjoy em! Old man coming thru out of my way!
Just here to add a completely useless "I have never heard this song in my life" remarks, even though I am incredibly familiar with all the other Number Ones throughout history. Are some Number Ones just... lesser?
"The Way It Is is a lush, pretty, well-crafted piece of work — the type of album that could sit comfortably on a CD rack next to Brothers In Arms or Invisible Touch or Sports." In other words, 3 records that made me very glad I had discovered another musical galaxy filled with stars like Siouxsie, New Order, the Smiths, the Cure, Depeche Mode...
I'm sorry you had to write about this. Maybe next time.
That first year Coachella lineup... Underworld, Chemical Bros, Roni Size, Richie Hawtin, Derrick May, Kevin Sauderson... THAT blew my mind. Electronic music lineups in the 90s... dayum.
Insane lineups were quite common during those early years. We US fans always got stellar festivals back in the day.
Not sure where that Orbital clip was recorded, but I saw them in 96 with Chemical Brothers, Underworld, and the Orb at some fairgrounds. When they dropped that Bon Jovi sample and mixed it with Belinda Carlisle, people looked around, laughed and then went bonkers. Orbital always had a fun sense of humor...
What a seriously sad situation. Hope she gets the closure and help she needs. Sounds like James Alex is hopefully getting sorted out. He owes that woman a BIG apology from the sound of it. How do you come back from THAT... yikes.
Terri Nunn issued an apology on her Facebook page regarding her performance, saying "I am truly sorry I performed at Mar-a-Lago and would not have done so if I'd known what I learned while I was there. My goal in performing was not to support a political party....The contract stated it was a small Covid-safe event for the members of Mar-a-Lago. Unfortunately it was not Covid-safe anywhere in Florida." Welp, not sure how you could NOT know but there it is. I hope she learned her lesson and it certainly sounds like it was simply a gig to her. I hope so.
Great article. I am not a hip-hop fan, but I loved DOOM.
Team Ginger, but Dawn Wells always seemed so damn nice...
