I'm Convinced

It's fascinating to me just how much response I got from the "I'm Pooped" post the other day. I never would have guessed. Here I thought I was just posting some lame old crap (pun intended) to placate Timothy.

This is going to be a short post, late in the day as it is. But here's the thing... I've never been a fan of U2, never understood the sex appeal that so many women find in Bono (he just looks greasy and aggressive to me), and more often than not, his voice makes me feel like I need to gargle with salt water. Plus, to my ear, some of their songs are just noisy... the music isn't clean enough for me. I don't know if that makes sense or not... while I can stand some distorted over-extended guitar bits, their stuff seems filled with it. Anytime the DJ's announce that they're going to play a U2 tune, I sigh, turn down the radio and think, "thank the gods that Bono limits his songs to 3 minutes or less..."

So, the other day when KMTT announced that they were going to play U2's new song Get On Your Boots every hour on the hour, I braced myself for a day without radio after the initial morning listen-in. I was astounded at how great the tune is. I just love it. 'Course, I still don't think Bono is sexy...

U2, Get On Your Boots
