Live in Milan (date unknown), here's drunken mick louts Conscience of the Western World U2 with their anthemic "Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For."



Of course, let's not tell these guys, okay? It might sting a little. The whole Fair Use thing, and all that.



In any case, as always, a coveted PowerPop No-Prize will be awarded the first commenter who divines its relevance to tomorrow's Weekend Listomania.

U are a cruel, cruel man. Funny, but cruel.

And it would be unfair of me to guess this one ...

And this clip is from their most recent tour. Those little squares in the background, behind the stage, are individual tv screens.

I can say no more.

Top post-Beatles dropping of pitch in concert 'cause the geezers can't hit the high notes?

ms. rosa said...

PBR ('post-Beatles-record', not the cruddy beer) songs with/about lost and found?

A musical act quoting heavily from another musical act's catalog?

A super big musical act trying to bully a small independent act?

Most bloated musical acts?

Return of the Plumber

Best use of sampling? (I refer to Negativland, not Cher's ex-husband's namesake.)

Who Am Us Anyway? said...

PBS (Post-Beatles Songs, not the TV station) featuring four or more of the following hyperactive activities: climbing, running, crawling, scaling, finding (not), looking, kissing, healing, burning, speaking, holding, believing, bleeding, breaking, loosening, carrying?

All very good, and I'm definitely stealing the one about lost and found.

But no.


HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!!

Sorry, I've been hosed by somebody getting first thing out of the gate for like the last three weeks.

7 word+ song titles

steve simels said...

Hmm...another hint...

Okay, it's not about the song per se.

Who Am Us Anyway? said...

Best anthemically anthematic stadium-rock anthems?

steve simels said...

Okay -- it's about your reaction to the song, not the song itself.

But perhaps I've said too much...
