U2 – “Mysterious Ways” Joshua Tree Tour, Amsterdam, July 29, 2017

U2 played a tight two-hour set during their first of two Amsterdam stops on Saturday night. We have no idea how they choose their “Mysterious Way” dancers (click here for more) but this fan sure had fun (cue to the 2:30 mark). Thanks to terrorsittich at YouTube for the upload…

 

***

Phora – “Numb”

A powerful wail.

***

Ashworth – “Nobody In The World”

Okay, let’s shake off the last one, put the column reverse and go upbeat with a little tropic-steady!

***

Erasure – “World Be Gone”

Nice to know one of the 80s great synth bands are still crafting romo-driven hits. Break out your lighters. It’s ballad time!

***

Rhye – “Please”

A voice that purrs. You’ll want more after hearing this one… please!!!

***

Prince – “Electric Intercourse”

Unreleased song now featured on the Purple Rain – Deluxe album, a drop that was recently lighting up Billboard’s album charts.

***

Liam Gallagher – “Chinatown”

Nostalgic walk down a Brit-pop path.

***

Tristen – “Glass Jar (feat. Jenny Lewis)”

Little patch of glittering whimsy from an American singer-songwriter. Cue up The La’s “There She Goes” right afterwards…

***

The La’s – “There She Goes”

Always a treat, right?

***

Until next week, enjoy!
