As I’ve learned, the LEGENDARY IRISH POP ROCK BAND, aka U2, is GIVING THEIR NEW MP3 ALBUM RELEASE ” SONGS OF THE INNOCENT, ” as a GIFT TO THEIR FANS, to WHOEVER SUBSCRIBED to iTUNES, for ONLY A LIMITED TIME, until it’s OFFICIAL RELEASE DATE on October 13, 2014.
If you’ve discerned this MARKETING PLOY very carefully, you’ll UNDERSTAND, that this STRATEGIC MOVE, will not only ATTRACT NEW FANS, but will also DRAW NEW CUSTOMERS, to PURCHASE THE iPHONE 6 and SUBSCRIBE to iTUNES, which generated more FINANCIAL GAIN, for the APPLE CORPORATION, ( Whom first paid the band, to INTRODUCE the iPOD, with the album MP3, ” HOW TO DISMANTLE AN ATOMIC BOMB, ” in the same way, that the corporation had paid U2, for this gesture.
Although their LOYAL FANS were EXCITED about this news, others have CHASTISED this gesture, exemplifying how DISPOSABLE MP3s are in this CYNICAL WORLD, yet NO ONE CHASTISED JAY Z or BEYONCE, when they’ve given their DOWNLOADS AWAY, for FREE. ?????????????
As written, on STEROGUM.COM:
” We have made several albums, we just haven’t released them,” Bono said of the band’s activity in recent years. “ We wanted to wait until we had one that was as good as our very best work. ” We’ll wait a while to decide whether Songs Of Innocence lives up to that standard, but on first listen, “The Miracle (Of Joey Ramone)” is a jaunty mid-tempo jock jam with a stadium-ready chant. It’s perfectly fine but not sounding like a classic on par with “ I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For ” to these ears. Bono dedicated it “ To Joey Ramone and the Ramones, ” obviously.

As BONO explained about his influence, on the song, ” THE MIRACLE ( OF JOEY RAMONE, ) as written on their website:
” The 4 members of U2 went to see the Ramones playing in the state cinema in Dublin without thinking about how we were going to get in. We had no tickets and no money.. My best friend Guggi had a ticket and he snuck us through a side exit he pried open. The world stopped long enough for us to get on it. Even though we only saw half the show, it became one of the great nights of our life….”
