After listening to all the goofy lyrics on the new U2 album (which has about 3 and 1/2 songs that are awesome, BTW) guessing just what the Spider-Man musical will be like could be a very amusing parlor game. And now, the new Rolling Stone cover story on the new U2 includes some talk about Bono and the Edge’s music. Finally!
The first song Bono plays on the Maserati’s more-than-adequate sound system is called “Boy Falls From the Sky,” with Across the Universe star Jim Sturgess singing as Peter Parker. It sounds a lot like a U2 hit, especially when Bono sings along in the car with the line “I used to use a single thread to cross the sky.” “Killer!” he shouts as the song wraps up, and then he plays a choral, operatic segue. When Bono’s assistant calls on his cell, he cuts the conversation short: “We’re in the middle of an opera here!”
“I used to use a single thread to cross the sky.”
Oh man. We hope there’s a song about…Doc Ock!!!!
“Steel claw, strapped to my back
Reaching for the salt,
Reaching for the pepper
Love, oh love, love will break a man’s adamantium harness.”
