War of the Worlds

Here’s a bit of top goss from Popbitch. According to their latest mail shot, Bono and Noel Gallagher are working on the soundtrack for Tom Cruise’s new War of the Worlds film.

Cruise recently said Bono “makes us all proud to be human.” Which we gather comes in handy when you’re making a film about aliens.

  1. Let’s hope Bono gives Noel a good um, “talking” to for calling him a fanny because he exercises. Then maybe they can make a great record.

  3. That’s not Noel…that’s his wanker brother Liam who’s been talking the Bono trash. Noel still gives Bono his due, always liked that brother better anyway. (g)

  5. Not only is Liam talentless, he is a son of a bitch, and I would love to put my Texan fist through his teeth if he ever came over here and spit on the ground to try to insult the country like he did on the MTV awards a few years back… Oh, yeah, no one here gives a rat’s ass about him anymore, I guess he won’t be back:)!!! I’ll be looking forward to Bono and Noel’s collabiration, though!!!

  7. So being in the possession of The finest rock and roll voice of his generation makes him talentless?, right if you say so. I think Liam’s recent comments about Bono have been out of line, bigtime, but liam is still a great singer. In saying that im actually a much bigger fan of noel and i think him working with Bono would be an outstanding contributiona nd one i’d love to hear. Noel’s always given U2 and bono respect that they deserve, it’s not his fault his brother loses it sometimes. But the MTV awards in 1996, How was that insulting a country?, that was not giving a crap about industry bullshit, something entirely different to insulting america.

  9. The finest rock and roll voice of his generation? I thought that was maybe Bono or Stipe or the dude from Radiohead. Certainly not his whine. Oasis sounds best when Noel sings and plays. He should drop his brother.

  11. i never liked liam’s singing. to call him the finest rock voice of our generation is like saying nsync has an original sound.

  13. isn’t the guy from radiohead the one that whines not liam. The Bono/Noel combination should be good, the two have shared a mutual respect for years. Im sure Ryan if you came to Liam’s town he would put his fist through your teeth, cut the guy some slack he is one of the few men that have kissed Bono on the lips…..

  15. The guy from radiohead has a name it’s Thom Yorke, he does “whine” much more than Liam anyways. And uhm if you take anything Liam says seriously enough to put your “Texan fist through his teeth” I’d hate to see what you would do to Eminem (or however you spell his name).

  17. As bad as Eminem is…atleast he writes his songs. I cant say the same thing for Liam.
    Liam = Brittney Spears + Beatles haircut + rotten attitude.

  19. Due to some other comments he had made prior to the awards and the fact I and several journalists thought he was trying to prove how much better he was than to have to play in America, I got the impression he was trying to offend his audience, and hey, it worked!!! He did that right!!! I like Eminem, some of his lyrics are disturbing, but he has explained that writing like he does is his way of getting those feelings out of his system, and that’s more understandable… Liam just shows up with mediocre music and voice ( you are right, it is cool he kissed Bono, I would have done that too) and, to my understanding, symbolicly spits on America, yeah, I think somebody should at least pimp slap him!!! Liam also said in different interviews when they were big here and people still interviewed them that he hated playing Texas, again, because he thinks he is much better than those rednecks (his words, folks)!!! Yes, I would probably lose it and deck the guy if he came to my house with that attitude, and I’d be willing to bet all of you would too… Maybe you guys are more calm than me though, eh;)???

  21. …so have Bono/U2 totally gone off to be a soundtrack-maker(s) these days? WTF happened to the band U2???!! This kinde sucks. + the title of the film sounds like a rip off of Star Wars. Not good. Nooot good, Bono!

  23. whoever is prattling off about Liam being talentless (which is more than one person i suppose)is rather living under a rock or deaf/dumb/blind.. cos liam has written songs in oasis’s upcoming album “heathen chemistry” (comin out on tuesday, actually) and all of them are fantastic! seriously, theya re amazing songs, especially “songbird” anyway, please give oasis their due, they are still the biggest british band in the world and a heapload better than eminem..

  25. War of the worlds sounds like a rip off of Star Wars. C’mon you sheltered U2 fans – War of the Worlds is a classic. (I actually own the double Cd ‘musical’ starring Dave Essex – now that sucks!) There is more in this world than just U2. And believe it or not Oasis are still popular (maybe not with the Amercian people). I personally don’t like Oasis, but a friend of mine got a ripped copy of their upcoming CD a couple of months ago, and from Track 5 onwards (the first 4 sound a lot like the Beatles), it’s probably the best music they have done yet. BTW – since Liam doesn’t write songs Jd, he sucks? Well that must mean Bono sucks more and more with each recordsince Edge is doing alot more in songwriting with Bono. And gee, U2 got musical inspiration from Dave Stewart for walk on. So why don’t we just respect each others opinions and leave it at that.

  27. Annie Vox – my opening comment was supposed to be sarcastic! I just forget to put the ? mark in. (I was having a go at Stand in for Julliet). The original War of the Worlds movie was quite good – I hope this remake can live up to the book. The book was very, very un-American. It’ll be interesting to see if they put the script through the ‘Hollywood blender’ and stuff it up. Nothing better then watching a movie that closes with a bunch of guys in a control room saying , yeah we did it – God bless America!”

  29. wow, i thought u2 fans were the smartest people one earth! 😉 seriously though who the hell wouldn’t know about war of the worlds, book made hugely famous first by its initial release, then again when orson welles read it on the radio on halloween and people thought it was an actual radio broadcast! then again with the original groundbreaking movie. Oh and liam does have a distinctive voice which has made oasis famous, believe it or not fellow yanks there is life outside the states, such as kylie just now making a comeback? she has been a frickin’ goddess in europe, asia, and oz for years now! wow how can people be so naive!

  33. SURE intelligence has SOO much to do with knowing a book by it’s name and author. Riight…
    First of all, I might say that the reason I might have not heard of the book is that I’m not from an english-spoken country so the title of the book is translated to my language. And it may not be translated word by word either so it would not be so easy to figure out the original title if so.
    Being from an non-english spoken country hardly makes me dumb, eh?

  35. This is yet another reason why we should all be extra-nice and sensitive to each other here in the comments, people… we’re decidedly not all from the same background. No potshots, please, no matter how much it *SEEMS* (note emphasis) like someone deserves them.

  37. War of the Worlds is a classic. It reveals how people can be easily governed by their emotions – Mass Hysteria. Which we already knew even if we haven’t read the novel – look at a U2 gig; thousands of people screaming the name of some short alien (foreigner).

  43. For anyone who is interested. On the Amazon.com US site, someone has made a rather nice list of War of the Worlds, book, DVDs and whathaveyou. Maybe we call all regard this as a learning experience and owe it all to Bono, Tom Cruise and of course mr. gallager…
    I’ve always thought that was one of the cool things about being a music fan. You love U2 and you hear they are doing something and you go find out what it is all about. If they are into it, then maybe it’s worth a look, you know?

  45. Re Liam finest Rock and Roll voice of the past 20 years, they are Bono’s words not mine. Also do not take anything Liam and Noel say seriously because half the time they don’t mean it they are just messing around. By the way Noel favourite U2 song is ‘One’ and favourite album ‘Achtung Baby’
