This isn’t the tune I was planning on sharing this week, but being a hardcore U2 fan, I always find it difficult to resist sharing the U2 love when a new song comes out. For those of you who don’t know, Bono and The Edge have been working on the Broadway musical Spiderman, Turn Off the Dark since 2010; the rock musical was previewed 180 times and its opening postponed several times before ‘they’ went back to the drawing board (I don’t really know who ‘they’ are) because it didn’t fare too well with critics or audiences. Personally, I hate musicals, and the thought of Spiderman singing and flying for two hours really doesn’t appeal to me, even if Bono and The Edge did compose the music. Anyway, the new opening date is (allegedly) June 14th.
So, without further ado, RAnnDomized presents Rise Above 1 – as featured on American Idol (no official video yet). If you dig this tune as much as I do, it’s available for purchase on iTunes.
