Bono’s “Heyday”

I’ll admit, I’ve been a little obsessed with the YouTube videos of the Christmas Eve jam session on Grafton Street. But this particular video intrigues me because Bono looks so damn out-of-place.

Of course, he is out of place. The other guys who stopped by to play are not exactly superstars of Bono-proportions. Glen Hansard and Damien Rice are the kinds of guys who still collaborate and play with other musicians. Bono is busy writing scores for terrible Broadway musicals. But he doesn’t even appear to know the words… I may have been able to forgive him for that since I’d never heard the song before I saw this video, but the audience seems to be familiar.

Is it just me?
