For many, "Where the Streets Have No Name" had an appealing sound that encapsulated the "west coast" sound with the iconic guitar riffs of U2's The Edge. I propose a similar sound. I present a edited/recut instrumental version of "Platform Moon" from Jupiter One's self-titled 2008 album, "Jupiter One." The track features a style consistent with the "west coast" sound, described by some as having a "haunting oceanic sound," but also presenting a kind of intensity, aggression, and coolness not featured in "Where the Streets Have No Name." It is also more upbeat than its U2 counterpart, addressing the problem many had with "Streets." The track is unique in the world of sports, and I feel it could become a part of the Canucks brand easily. Early feedback on other forums has been positive, and while I was too late to officially enter the NU2 competition, I feel with enough support it might receive consideration. After all, DJ Dave's soundtrack is always experimenting with new ideas. I feel this can be a secondary theme for the team, an alternative to U2 without abandoning that sound. While there are suggestions about entrance songs, I believe finding a theme to identify the team with is important.
To achieve this cut of the song, a number of simple edits need to be made. If I had a WAV file of it available (i.e. lossless audio), I'd cut it and have it ready for DJ Dave right away. If he is comfortable with using a normalized MP3 file, I have that available already. Hopefully this will provide an alternative to some of the other suggestions being made.
I'd like to hear your thoughts:
