U2: ‘Magnificent’ Video Premiere + Single Details


U2 digitally affix themselves atop a building in Morocco on the above single cover for Magnificent. The official video, directed by Alex Courtes is set in Fez, Morocco. The band wrote and recorded their current album, No Line On The Horizon here as well.

The single includes remixes by Fred Falke, Pete Tong and others! I’m still not a fan of this era of U2, but I support their choice in remixers…and Morocco sounds fun too! According to Rolling Stone, even will.i.am has involvement in this single, with a yet to be released mix!

Hey Baby, What’s Your Sign … I Mean Song?

This article written by my friend Sherene Schostak mashes up modern day astrology with some great music that is always floating through my iTunes. She’s got a great collection! Check out the original article here or read it below! The pic above is just amazing. ;)

Now that the the planet of love, Venus (which is still moving backward or ‘retrograding’) has gone back into Pisces, let’s check in with the almighty oracle of the iTunes shuffle function to see what the cosmic messages are for each sign at this complex alchemical juncture.

Does this mean we have to give up our narcissistic fetishes like Twitter in order to do something more compassionate, like save the world — or at least our souls? In honor of Pisces, let’s see what the gods of music have to say.

ARIES
Gimme Shelter by The Rolling Stones

“Oh, a storm is threatening
my very life today.
If I don’t get some shelter,
I’m going to fade away”

TAURUS

Underneath the Stars by The Cure
“Floating here like this with you,
underneath the stars alight,
for thirteen billion years the view is beautiful,
ours alone tonight”

GEMINI
Profanity Prayers
by Beck
“Well you know how it looks
when you close all the books on the table.
And you stare into space
trying to decide the way now”

CANCER
Doll Parts by Hole
“I want to be the girl with the most ache.
I love him so much it just turns to hate.
I fake it so real I am beyond fake
and some day you will ache like I ache”

LEO
Gold Dust Woman
by Fleetwood Mac
“Rock on gold dust woman,
take your silver spoon and dig your grave.
Heartless challenge
pick your path and I’ll pray”

VIRGO
Drive
by R.E.M.
“Hey kids, where are you?
Nobody tells you what to do baby.
Maybe you did, maybe you walked.
Maybe you rocked around the clock”

LIBRA
There’s a World
by Neil Young
“There’s a world you’re living in
No one else has your part
All God’s children in the wind
Take it in and blow hard”

SCORPIO
Stellar by the Smashing Pumpkins
“Built a mere kingdom of self abuse
hitched to some rainbow once more,
it’s always yours once more,
the wait hurts worse than the blows”

SAGITTARIUS

Hey Johnny Park by The Foo Fighters
“It’s impossible, I can’t let it out
You’ll never know
Am I selling you out?
Sit and watch your every mood”

CAPRICORN
The Hand that Feeds
by N.I.N
“Just how deep do you believe?
Will you bite the hand that feeds?
Will you chew it until it bleeds?
Can you get up off your knees?
Are you brave enough to see?
Do you want to change it?”

AQUARIUS
Wherever I May Roam by Metallica
“Under the wandering stars
I’ve grown by myself but not alone
I ask no one
And my ties are severed clean
Less I have the more I gain
Off the beaten path I reign”

PISCES
The Fly by U2
“It’s no secret that the stars are falling from the sky
It’s no secret that our world is in darkness tonight
They say the sun is sometimes eclipsed by a moon
Love you shine like a burning star”
