New U2 is Excellent

Picking back up on dbest of theme, there's no better place to start than with the newest song from U2.

One of two new songs at the end of their compilation album "U218 Singles" - "Window in the Skies" is quickly becomming one of my favorite U2 songs of all time, and that's saying a lot for me. The song is classic U2. Bono sounds good, if not quite at his best, and the lyrics are incredible - pay attention as you listen to the incredible message the song sends.

And more... the video, one of two very different ones for this single... is awesome. It's comprised almost entirely of clips of other amazing artists who appear to be singing "Window in the Skies." At first, you might think that U2 isn't in the vid at all, but look again, Bono, The Edge, Larry and Adam make cameos mixed into the crowd shots.

Here are just a few of the greats shown (the obvious ones, really):

Simon & Garfunkel
Louis Armstrong
The Beatles
Elvis
David Bowie
Frank Sinatra
Jimmy Hendrix
Johnny Cash
Queen Latifah
Cole Porter

Who else can you spot in the video? Check it out in its entirety at this link:

Let's see if we can identify all the great artists who appear - leave a comment(s) with those you notice.

Some that have stuck out to me recently:

Toyota Tundra - Meteor Proof
Miller Lite - Beer Run
MasterCard - Peyton Manning: "Will you sign my mellon?" ..."D-CAF! D-CAF!"
Southwest Airlines - Ding: Dude hears ding and jumps over cubes to get to his desk.

#9 What's dbest... Thanksgiving side dish? Turkey Stuffing!

Turkey Stuffing runs away with 50% of the vote, though this entry in a vote for "other" does sound very appealing:

Stuffing croquettes - These are patties of stuffing put on a baking sheet and baked till they have a crunch on the outside -- but still moist on the inside. My mom is the only chef I know who does it!
