    I know this means I'm the uncoolest person on the board, but I'm really digging this new song by U2 they started playing in the recent tour.

    It was very good. Excellent show but as someone pointed out in the concert thread, stadium shows are tough. The sounds echoed a bit. The stage was awesome with the large screen and it was cool to hear the Joshua Tree straight through. Bono even gave a one minute praise to W and Laura Bush for their work with AIDS in Africa. Tickets were expensive but overall it was worth it.

    U2 risked a May outdoor concert in Seattle and got away with it, threatened to rain but never did. With speakers suspended in the rigging, the slightest wind caused the sound to fluctuate. Acoustically, tons of cement, steel, and hard plastic is not ideal. Along with just enjoying a show with me at 50,000 of my closest friends. There is something about having that many people together worshiping singing along.

    Even with the acoustically difficult conditions, it was a fantastic show, here's the Seattle setlist below. Couldn't really have asked for more. Being Seattle, as is wont to happen, Eddie Vedder joined Bono on stage for "Mothers of the Disappeared". Unscheduled rendition of "I Will Follow" wrapped up the show, The Edge was bouncing around the stage--and the stadium was rocking. Bono's voice has held up well, I was quite pleasantly surprised. They really seemed to enjoy playing through the older material. The show was political, but I wasn't bothered by it, U2's music has always been political--whether discussing tragedies, historic events, social injustices, or other events they have found moved them enough to write about. There's no separating entertainment from politics for them.

    B stage:
    Sunday Bloody Sunday
    New Year's Day
    A Sort of Homecoming (with "America" snippet)
    Bad (with "America" snippet; tour debut)
    Pride (In the Name of Love)

    The Joshua Tree (main stage):
    Where the Streets Have No Name (with "California (There Is No… more ))
    I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For
    With or Without You
    Bullet the Blue Sky
    Running to Stand Still
    Red Hill Mining Town
    In God's Country
    Trip Through Your Wires
    One Tree Hill
    Exit (with "Eeny, meeny, miny, moe" snippet)
    Mothers of the Disappeared (with Eddie Vedder) (also with Mumford & Sons;… more )

    Encore:
    Beautiful Day (with "Love, Reign O'er Me" snippet)
    Elevation
    Ultraviolet (Light My Way) (dedicated to women's rights activists)
    One (dedicated to David Wojnarowicz)

    B-Stage:
    Miss Sarajevo (Passengers cover) (with "The New Colossus " snippet)
    The Little Things That Give You Away
    I Will Follow (tour debut)

    Note: "I Will Follow" was not on the printed setlist. This was the first time "I Will Follow" closed a show since 2 Dec. 1982.

    Two new albums that are excellent:

    Planetarium by Sufjan Stevens, Nico Muhly, Bryce Dessner, and James McAllister: It is brilliant. Highly recommend if you like Sufjan Stevens at all. Everything he releases just seems to get better and better.

    Relaxer by alt-J: Never listened to much of alt-J, but I'm really digging this new album.

    And a new song from Radiohead:

    I Promise: This was supposedly left on the cutting room floor when they put together OK Computer. Supposed to be on the remastered version of OK Computer that is coming out soon.

    While My Guitar Gently Weeps

    Heard it a while ago on the Beatles Channel on Sirius/XM and they said that while George Harrison wrote the song, he wasn't satisfied with the way he could play it. So to record the song, they brought in Eric Clapton under a pseudonym since he was contracted to some other studio.

    Interesting about Clapton.

    Sometimes you hear a song and you think, "Why have I never heard this before? Where was I when this came out originally?" Mad World by Tears for Fears.

    Yup. the Beatles did stuff like that often in their studio period. e.g., Billy Preston playing keys on Get Back.

    For all you who don't mock Canada mercilessly, the new Barenaked Ladies album "Fake Nudes" is not too bad. At least half the songs are pretty good, with 3 of them constantly drilling into my brain right now. Here's one of them:

    Thoughts on the new U2 album? Better than their last one. At least as good as anything post 2000. Two great songs at least: The Little Things That Give you Away and Love Is Bigger Than Anything In Its Way.

    I don't mind U2 at all. I did hear their new single and thought it was good. However, I'm constantly deluged with new music and rarely get a chance to give anything a chance.

    New album by Billy Corgan that Rick Rubin produced. It's the BC solo album I've wanted for about 15 years. Better late than never.

    I came across a song that I really liked from the Netflix show called “The Ranch”.

    It took forever to find the song but once I found it, I was even more touched by the first few words of the song:

    “At First it’s gonna Sting. A different kind of pain”.

    I thought it would be about breaking up, but the video showed me it was about much more.

    Childhood Cancer. It has shined a light on something I think many of us do not understand until we are impacted by it.

    May this video be as powerful to you as it was to me..

    Be sure to Read the Info in the YouTube video. It gives more backstory about the song..

    Automatically loses a star for not having the cute waitress in it.

    I think I would have liked this video better if it ignored the band and just showed the middle-aged ladies singing along with it, waving their heads back and forth, wiping tears from their eyes, etc.

    Actually, I am pretty impressed with them. As a child of the 80s, I have probably heard this song 300 times, and if you asked me to sing it along with them I would still be mumbling through half of the words. For example, I had no idea that the chorus after "I'll be gone" ended with "In a day or two". I always thought he was just kind of making high pitched noises there. So props to them for knowing all the words.

    What am I listening to at this very moment?

    After Bathing at Baxters by Jefferson Airplane. One of my favorite albums of all time. Also one of the few that I've owned in vinyl, cassette and CD. Of course, now I just listen to it from my computer as MP3 files - much more convenient.
