U2 : Stuck In A Moment You Can't Get Out Of

Further evidence that music is in dire need of a good sub-editor. What with such barbarisms as 'Standing On The Shoulder Of Giants' and 'All That You Can't Leave Behind' (the [a]U2[/a] album) becoming commonplace, someone with an eye for a stopping an awkward title needs to take control. Bono's normally good at the business of naming tunes, but this one just doesn't know when to stop. "There's nothing you can throw at me that I haven't already heard",

he croons ruefully amid the back-to-basics pop madness. Oh yeah? How about, 'Yer grammar's clunky, Vox. Sort it out!'?
