So you are one of the lucky people to see them when they were really good and not a mockery of themselves...(wating for Firstborn angry U2 smackdown in 5, 4, 3, 2, ....). Now seriously, IIRC, that was the first US U2 tour, right?


i don't think it was their first US tour. they had released the unforgettable fire that year, so they were certainly already well established. they had to have toured after the previous albums.

lone justice was the opening act, so a big shout-out to all you maria mckee fans out there. both of you.

I'd like to see a pair of boobs that would prompt me to write home. Maybe Scarlett Johannson level quality? "Dear Mom and Dad, I saw an awesome rack today. They were perfect. Everything else is fine. Love, BD79."

Really? Five years ago since that jackass JohnnyDamon wrote this?

Not really a huge fan of his music. Although "How Do You Sleep" and "Instant Karma" weren't awful. "Imagine" is the most maudlin piece of garbage ever written and/or sang, however. Shame that he got shot, though (although frankly, it may have been an improvement over living with Yoko).

I like Lennon's post-Beatles stuff way more than the Beatles. Probably over-saturation. It's political, personal, mellow...it's pretty cool. Wasn't a favorite growing up in our house but over the years you can appreciate the whole thing.

I was at the U2 show. Really good one. I was surprised Lone Justice did not end up doing better.

I stand by it. The song blows and is always played when some tragedy happens and makes me angry. Plus, Lennon was singing that song in a friggin' mansion! The whole song is about no possessions and shit.

I'll give you all that, but, there's way, way, waaaaaaaaay worse maudlin garbage than Imagine (i.e; wind beneath my wings.) And it's still a pretty good song...wouldn't crack my top 5, maybe top 10 of Lennon songs, but it's not bad.

And Wolf's right, it's about communism. Which gives it bonus points. Sure, communism has never worked when actually practiced, but neither has capitalism.

OK, maybe I shoulda said it's the most overplayed piece of maudlin garbage ever. Because Wind Beneath My Wings is pretty awful. As is You Raise Me Up

I actually don't have anything against Imagine, and I definitely wouldn't call it the most maudlin piece of garbage I've ever heard. But fuck Communism anyway.

I do think, however, that Mark David Chapman might be my least favorite murderer ever. Worshipping Holden Caulfeld and using a 14-year-old quote that may or may not have been taken out of context as your justification? Come on, man, at least claim to have an unnatural love of Yoko or even Sean or Julian. It'd have been much more believable.

He's my favorite murderer ever too! Definitely a first rounder in next year's murder fantasy draft.
