Topic: Great Video

I'm not a real big U2 fan. I've always thought they were good, and enjoyed some of their stuff, but never was really taken by them. They did a video with Mary J. Blige (who I know very little about) that is one of the best things I've seen in a long time. I guess it's been out for a while? I saw it on TV and it literally gave me goosebumps. Go to http://www.mjblige.com/video/ and scroll down the page until you find the link for "One" and give it a listen and watch the video.

I'd be interested to hear what you think of this!

Re: Great Video

Hey Stu, great video.  The first time I saw this it really blew me away.  I have been a fan of U2 since Joshua Tree but did not see them live until a year ago in Atlanta and Charlotte.  When we saw the Slane Castle DVD then I knew that we needed to see them live.  We were not disappointed, amazing concerts to say the least.  Did get the priviledge of meeting Bono in Atlanta and he was a really nice guy. 

Again great video, thanks for sharing Stu...

take care

Music is good for the Soul...

Re: Great Video

I liked it, and also U2 and Mary.
not as a complaint but I was hoping for a bit more of a bluesy voice from her in that one.  I feel like I could have put a little more soul in that one, I just don't have a great voice or the chance to be in a video like that. i think her singing was great but for that song, just a touch missing IMO

the filmography was cool, although jumped around a bit,lol, the shaodows and highlights, etc.
and the guitars,nice.


"Love a higher law" - cool line

edited to add: after i thought about this more, I didn't mean to imply there wasn't soul in her singing, i guess i mean like i think that song should have more like moaning, wailing sort of soulful voice if that makes sense
