That's what Bono thinks


Can't find the performance of The Best Thing yet
See through in the sunlight

Of course, but his reaction around 50 seconds seems to show otherwise.

I find it funny

Yeah I’ve found speaking French and understanding a French person speaking French are two different things - I can string together sentences in French but I struggle to understand a French person speaking it.

ooh, looks like Bono might have rehearsed all those lines for the Paris I&E DVD (remember the French he spoke from the stage).  Wouldn't surprise me.  I recently went to a gig by a British/African folk singer and she sung a traditional African folk song in Rundi but she blew her cover and admitted it was harder than learning her own songs as she didn't speak the language very well and was trying to impress her mum who originally came from Burundi!
One love, One blood, One life;
You got to do what you should.
One life; With each other
Sisters, Brothers
One life; But we're not the same
We get to carry each other, Carry each other

I live in Quebec the French spoken here is different from Parisien French I was taught Parisien French in school. Totally different.
