"The Black Parade" To Become A Musical? Plus, U2 Best Of Tracks Announced
I don't want to cover this band, I don't. But when I read that they are going to make a musical out of Welcome To The Black Parade, well, I have to say something. Concept albums get a bad rap. And I think that is generally because most popular bands are mediocre as artists. Yeah, they can play instruments, but they aren't really making something with real force behind it. And when a half-wit wants to drag it out into a multimedia foray, well, we have a problem.
NME also reports that U2's imminent 'Best Of' collection, called U218 Singles, now has a tracklisting:
'I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For'
'Pride (In The Name Of Love)'
'With Or Without You'
'New Year's Day'
'Stuck In A Moment You Can't Get Out Of'
'Where The Streets Have No Name'
'Sunday Bloody Sunday'
'Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own'
'The Saints Are Coming'
Plus one new song, title TBD.
