I got it in my head that The Killers should definitely be part of this project because, 1. They love U2, 2. They do great U2 covers (ok this is just Brandon, but still!) and 3. It would make my life to hear my favorite band cover my favorite band on my favorite album.
Then I decided they should cover Ultraviolet (Light My Way.) And after listening to AB I came up with a Killers Cover Achtung Baby Wishlist that started with Ultraviolet and ended with Tryin’ to Throw Your Arms Around the World, but really I would have been happy with whichever song they did (I would have been happiest if they were the only band covering the whole damn thing!)
BTW this was all despite the fact that there was NO CONFIRMATION that they had anything to do with it!
As I said on FB:
I don’t think there are enough CAPITAL LETTERS AND !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OR 🙂 to express JUST HOW EXCITED I AM ABOUT THIS!!!!!! 🙂
Brandon is going to KILL this in the vocals, then he’s going to kill ME when I hear it. Seriously guys – if there was a Holy Grail of my Fangirldom, this may be it!
