is it me? Or is this possibly one of the best covers of all time? I love it. And I don't care who wrote the original.
Can't recall hearing the original though (and that's where someone tells me that it's really famous or something...)
It's by U2.
But I don't like U2, so whatever.
Theo on this one!?
Great cover - and i don't like U2 but it has to be said its a great fucking song. Pretty powerful considering what its about.
does it? I meant its powerful because its about Bloody Sunday (which was a fucking travesty).
Now it sort of lost all its meaning under a wall of overplayedness. Or something like that.
but i kind of think the chorus part could be better, its too evocative of nine inch nails; which i guess is because trent reznor produced it?
I hear this?
like the original, so you'd probably like that too.
It feels 'right' with saul's delivery and the chanting. I also way prefer the techy glitch beats.
Sorry, but it's a total skip moment for me. Sounds exactly like the original. Dull dull dull. Awful choice of cover.
I'm not sure if he put it in simply because Bowie always had a cover on his records in those days.
