Perhaps we'll need a new tag called "Daniel Lanois Biblical references" after the hat-tip to Colossians 3:16 in the first installment of Alan Cross' interview with Lanois. (Cross has been doing an interesting experiment throughout the run-up to the new single/album by blogging and twittering his initial reactions.) But anyway, here's the image I'm referring to: One of my first conversations with Bono was one about future hymns — spiritual songs for the future — and he was of the opinion that Morocco would be a great crossroads for a universal feeling for the album.

I am wondering for what percentage of the global listening audience connecting a track like "Get On Your Boots" with the idea of "spiritual songs for the future" is just beyond incomprehensibly weird.
