U2 Performs On The Late Show With David Letterman

For the past five nights, U2 has been the guest musical act on “The Late Show With David Letterman.” Throughout the week, the viewers of the show have been treated to hearing new music along with some old favorites. To help promote their new CD, U2 ended the week by performing the first single from No Line On the Horizon titled “Get On Your Boots.”

After buying No Line On the Horizon this past Tuesday when it was released, I suggest that all U2 fans check it out. The band has been known to change up their sound when recording a new album, and this one is no different. Even though some songs have a classic U2 feel, I think a few songs may have received a slight influence from Kings Of Leon; the two bands toured together in 2005.

Super Bowl Halftime Shows

This is my first post for Music Monday. Yes, I have decided that if I want to write about music, then I will try to write on a Monday. Why? Because it sounds better than Music Wednesday. I can not guarantee that all of my posts about music will be on a Monday due to a few difficulties that are imposed with this new theme; for example, new music is released on Tuesdays.

The legendary Bruce Springsteen will be performing at the Super Bowl this year. Unfortunately, Super Bowl halftime performances can be hit or miss. This has led me to ask myself the question: what was the best Super Bowl halftime show? I have narrowed it down to a list of the top 3 best performances based on my memory; the videos were found after I wrote this.

#3: During the mid-1980′s, Michael Jackson was in his prime. His music career hit another high in the early 1990′s when the album Dangerous was released with the hit song “Black or White.” In 1993, Jackson performed at the Rose Bowl during Super Bowl XXVII. The most memorable part of the performance was the beginning when Jackson stood still while everyone wondered if he would sing.



#2: The performance by U2 during the Super Bowl XXXVI E-Trade Halftime Show was very moving as it included a tribute to the 9-11 victims. The Edge’s guitar riff at the beginning of “Where the Streets Have No Name” always seem to give me chills, but the feeling was intensified when the riff was played at the New Orleans Superdome in 1992.

#1: From Dolphin Stadium in 2007, Prince performed a medley of his hit songs during the Super Bowl XLI Pepsi Halftime Show. As it rained on him, Prince threw in several cover songs including “Best Of You” by the Foo Fighters and Bob Dylan’s “All Along The Watchtower” before closing the show (appropriately) with “Purple Rain.” Every time I watch this entire performance, I am reminded that Prince does not receive enough credit for being a great guitarist.
