Nobody's Opinion

U2 Plays in the Subway of New York

Nobody Reports

This is so typical. In this world there are SO many artists as talented as U2 and yet, as Joni Mitchell once said in a song, people pass them by. In a song called “He Played Real Good for Free” written long ago, Joni sang about this:

“Nobody stopped to hear him, though he played so sweet and high

They knew he had never been on their TV, so they passed his music by

I meant to go over and ask for a song, maybe put on a harmony.

But the one man band, by the quick lunch stand, he played real good for free” 

Notice how without their great PA system U2 sounds much like any other band on the street…it was only until everybody KNEW who they were, that they came over to listen.

So, support your favorite local band. Not all of them can be famous, but they are a lot cheaper to listen to.

Enjoy!

  2. This one makes me weep for my Country. I would love to meet the only woman who stopped and watched.
