U2 Acoustic Cover & The Gardener

October 22, 2011

You didn’t know this, but this is a good pre-post to something I’ve had in the works since the first week of June.  An acoustic rendition of U2’s “With Or Without You”, subtlety and even theologically solid, yet obscure enough for one to question the truth and impact of the lyrics.  That’s what I call a thought provoking song.  But only risky enough for an Irish, yet devoutly Catholic/Christian individuals comprising of a secular band. But more on that later.

Check out the Asian kid.  Solid performance.  Trace Bundy and Sungha Jung.  Here’s to hoping for more live acoustic guitars in southern gospel concerts.  We know of a few that can play them.

 

 

And more, from the Southern Gospel Gardener.  Featuring Triumphant Quartet’s Clayton Inman and the hit project, “Everyday”.

    Oh, rubbish. It’s just a contrived love song pretending to be deep and symbolic. Nothing remotely theological about it.

    Some people think that if something is rather mysterious and obscure, there MUST be something profound we’re missing. I don’t. 😉

    • Oh, but as for the music, it’s quite lovely. I believe I shall record this acoustic performance and set it to repeat on my ipod instead of U2’s original.

  2. Hey, did a couple of my comments get lost here?

    • Uh no. And in a post to come, symbolic yes…given the fact it’s coming from a secular band, I shall prove the lyrics are more theologically rooted than what seems to be on the surface. But either way, it’s a grand acoustic performance.

      • Okay. I posted them, they were waiting in moderation, then POOF. But I see them back now. Seriously dude, you had me scared stiff!

    cool cover! and of course the kids asian. they can do it all, am i right?

    • They sure can. Mathematics, gymnastics, music…

      BTW, no hard feelings but how come your comment got through moderation faster than mine? I’m joking around, no worries. 😉

        Asians are also good at chess.

      • Totally! In fact the Russians have always been the dominating force in chess, but China is becoming a force to watch and fear. Hou Yifan is one of the best females in the world. And in America, you look at any top 100 list for young people, and you’ll just see those Asian names DOMINATING.
