Ugh, when Chris Martin stood in for a sick Bono it was awful. I love the song, but it’s a U2 song.
The Edge: “[Eno] would love to see us making albums a bit more like [Zooropa]. Where we go, ‘You know what? We’re not going to second-guess any of this. Let’s just go for it.’”

U2 Fans: We'd all love to see that, Edge.

I think the idea of doing something for the kids graduating this year is commendable.

However, the execution here is a bit cringeworthy

That is my point and its the people they are hanging out with...for me it reeks of desperation to be in with the cool kids again.

Urrghh

I just succumbed to curiosity....

What do i find?

Bono prattling on about 'America is an idea and a dream'

Just fuck off.....clicked off straight away.

He's just a parody now.

"America's a dream that belongs to the whole world."

He lives in a dream world.  That's what a lifetime of nobody telling him "no!" does.

It's possible to ride the rainbow to the other side if one is careful not to fall for temptation along the way.

I think Bono's problem is he's fallen and he can't get up  :(

I just want to demonstrate how badly produced this is by showing you all what one of the singers featured, Leon Bridges, can sound like.

says the last one shall be first.
Well, if that verse is true,
there's hope for me and you.

I am a little surprised that there isn't more conversation about Bono's 'speech' at the start of this....
