I mean...  
... maybe it's me doing mental trips but isn't this song very very Jack & Sawyer however you see it?

You're dangerous 'cause you're honest
You're dangerous, you don't know what you want
Well you left my heart empty as a vacant lot
For any spirit to haunt
 
You're an accident waiting to happen
You're a piece of glass left in a beach
Well, you tell me things I know you're not supposed to
Then you leave me just out of reach

Who's gonna ride your wild horses?
Who's gonna drown in your blue sea?
Who's gonna ride your wild horses?
Who's gonna fall at the foot of thee?

Well you stole it 'cause I needed the cash
And you killed it 'cause I wanted revenge
Well you lied to me 'cause I asked you to
Baby, can we still be friends?

Who's gonna ride your wild horses?
Who's gonna drown in your blue sea?
Who's gonna ride your wild horses?
Who's gonna fall at the foot of thee?

Oh, the deeper I spin
Oh, the hunter will sin for your ivory skin
Took a drive in the dirty rain
To a place where the wind calls your name
Under the trees the river laughing at you and me
Hallelujah, heavens white rose
The doors you open
I just can't close

Don't turn around, don't turn around again
Don't turn around, your gypsy heart
Don't turn around, don't turn around again
Don't turn around, and don't look back
Come on now love, don't you look back!

Who's gonna ride your wild horses?
Who's gonna drown in your blue sea?
Who's gonna taste your salt water kisses?
Who's gonna take the place of me?

Who's gonna ride your wild horses?
Who's gonna tame the heart of thee?

And anyway it's a beautiful song too. Why did Bono decide to save the world when he's obviously made to be a singer and not Jesus? Because y'know, U2 were better then. *sighs* yeah I didn't like their latest record at all, sadly.

and it hasn't nothing to do with it but if anyone on the flist is interested, I'm taking icon/graphics requests there XD

Ah, I've always loved U2. I wish they'd get around to putting out another album, but Bono wouldn't be Bono if he weren't trying to save the world. (Of course, I actually thought "All That You Can't Leave Behind" was overrated and "How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb," and for that matter "Pop," were underrated.)

*Fangirls shamelessly.*

Well I had that idea that you loved U2 if not for the title of your series ;) you're sadly right, if he weren't trying to save the world he wouldn't be Bono, but if for a couple of years he could just think about music I wouldn't complain a bit *sighs*

That said, I kinda like 'All that you can't leave behind' but the main reason is that it was my first U2 record, someone gave it to me as a recycled present at the time (eight years? I don't even remember XD), I have to admit it was overrated though it has some very good songs.. And I love 'Pop' while the atomic bomb... mh, I love 'Yahweh' and 'City of blinding lights' there but the rest hasn't stuck. I guess I'll just take my Joshua Tree/Achtung Baby/War triangle and be happy and fangirl about those ;) and go on with the shameless U2 fangirling, I actually never get the possibility to do it since I'm short on U2 acquaintances ;)

Yeah, I'm not really good at coming up with titles. Literary allusions seem pretentious at best most of the time (no, actually, I'm not writing anything worthy of Shakespeare or Wallace Stevens), and as for more classical musical ones... well, "Harpsichord Concerto IV in A Minor" just doesn't work, somehow.

"All That You Can't Leave Behind" certainly isn't their best, although I'm fond of the title track, and "Elevation" is catchy as hell. I can promise, however, that I will never use "New York" as a fic title. If I can avoid it. I hope. ;)

Same here, I hate titles with a vengeance, and I always use songs too. I guess one could go with opera arias but really normal songs are the best way to go. About the literary references, good point too, one never feels worthy enough (which at least means we still got some realism, right? XD) ;)

Oh yeah the title track is a good one and I really liked Elevation too, 'Stuck in a Moment etc' is one that I really like too and there was 'Grace' too which was very good. And yeah, 'New York' would be kinda generic. Maybe. 'All That You Can't Leave Behind' is terrific as a title though. Well that's why they're good at it I guess XD
