but I got an email from iLike.com with this interview with Bono just before I meant to turn off my screen:
Today, U2 used iLike to post a personal message from Bono, singing – and talking us through – “Wave of Sorrow.” It’s a track that U2 demoed during sessions for The Joshua Tree in 1987. Just recently Bono laid down vocals for the song and it will be released for the first time next week on the remastered release of The Joshua Tree. As Bono plays us the track, he also tells the powerful story of the song. I found it quite moving!
Oh My Guuuwaaahhh!
Needless to say, I will be purchasing the remastered release of The Joshua Tree. If I ever wondered why I someday hope to get a tattoo of the Joshua Tree from this album on my back, I know for sure why. U2 stand for everything I hold holy. Blessed was the teenager who grew up with The Joshua Tree. Blessed am I indeed. Thank you, iLike!
