This is a favourite song of mine to perform. It sounds different that U2’s original because I fell in love with the Jonny Cash version first. In fact, I was done recording for the most part and decided that I really should hear the original to see if I was missing anything.
As it turns out, I could have played the guitar parts the that Edge dude plays, but I’m happy with how different it is from U2’s version. What a killer song. I really enjoyed working on this one.
When it came time to do video, Matt and I really had no idea how to interpret the song visually… I always let problems percolate when this happens, my brain tends to sort it out. I hope it continues to work in the background like this when I’m 80.
We are One. The community, the love, the life, and we are very much connected, we share this life together and my actions will have consequence (positive or negative), perhaps even for you, even if you had nothing to do with my actions. We really are One.
So we hit the mall with a camera. and we got kicked out of the mall. But not before we had accumulated enough shenanigans to fill up a few minutes of video. I like it. we all worked together, effortlessly really, kind of the way life can be if you take care of your community…
