Not Sleepin'

For Wednesday (well, it's still Wednesday Central time, anyway), a song. One friend of mine is trying to convince me that the new U2 record is worthwhile, but I am, stubbornly, not believing it. The last thing the band did that I found even intermittently worthwhile was Zooropa, and that was -- I really hate to say this -- 16 years ago.

But before that, of course, there was U2, deservedly globe-conquering rock band. This is a performance from 1984 in Germany, of one of my favorite songs, of theirs or anybody's, "Bad." Enjoy:

Damn, what a beautiful, powerful song. The Unforgettable Fire was one of those albums that changed the way I heard music. I haven't heard the new album and don't really plan to, Achtung Baby was the last U2 album that did it for me.

I was always glad The Police burned out after Synchronicity and we were not compelled to love everything they did after.

Do NOT buy the new U2. Dez convinced me and I regret it hugely. It is just as crappy as all their recent work.

ANCIANT, you are wrong. It is not as crappy as their recent work.

Dez, you're right. It's not as crappy as their recent work. But it's still crappy.
