1.) Put on the best pair of headphones you own. Not little earbuds. Real, honest-to-goodness headphones.
2.) Cue up the live version of “Ultraviolet” from the Pasadena DVD/concert.
3.) Turn up the volume as high as your ears will let you.
4.) Turn off the lights. Put yourself in complete darkness.
5.) Hit PLAY.
6.) Close your eyes and soak it all in.
Awesome, isn’t it? I’ll bet you can feel the desperation in Bono’s voice. In the song itself.
7.) Repeat as necessary/desired.
(PS – I hope “Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me” has the same feeling on the current tour.)
