U2 release two videos for their latest single Window In The Skies

U2 has released two videos to go along with their latest single, "Window In The Skies" off of the album U218 Singles.

The first video features clips of famous musicians performing and singing in sync with the music like Frank Zappa, Billie Holiday, Simon and Garfunkel, Roy Orbison, Ella Fitzgerald, Bob Marley, The Clash, Jimi Hendrix, modern day musicians and many more. I could see Bono in "the crowd" a couple of times during the video and then finally saw The Edge toward the end.

I couldn't help but think how good a drinking game this video could make. Figuring out who's who, where the band members are in the crowd etc. The rules could be whoever is last in calling out the names of each musician as they appear has to drink. That would be a pretty quick moving game, though. Maybe with shots? :-)

Anyway, I bet there will be a few angry musicians out there wondering why they weren't included!

The second video for "Window In The Skies" features old footage of U2 including family photos and album sleeves.

Of course besides the videos there's also the song to address. U2 has definitely discovered the recipe for creating great pop songs and "Window In The Skies" is up there with one of their best. Very melodic throughout and well written, to no surprise.
