invent song titles for U2's albums
« on: November 16, 2017, 12:57:13 PM »
bringing back my fave thread from the last place...come up with song titles that sound like they could've been on U2's albums.

I saved my list from that old thread (and I've since written three of them), so I'll start with that:

Boy: Look Over There
October: One-word Answer
War: Not On My Watch
TUF: coming up roses
TJT: Mary of the Mirage
R&H: Burial Mound
AB: why won't you?
Zooropa: You Are Here
OS1: Bells ringing in the deep
Pop: all eyes on the chemist
ATYCLB: These hands
HTDAAB: Fire Down Below
NLOTH: the newest world
SOI: Pandemonium Express

...and I'll come up with one for SOE once I hear the whole thing. By the way, If you have lots of ideas for just one or two albums, feel free to put 'em down here.
   :D
