Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me by U2 from the "Batman Forever" Soundtrack" Transcribed by Joe Weinson (BLSTRVLR4@aol.com) Hi all! I've seen so many different tabs for this so I decided to set everything straight by declaring that my version is correct and complete. The 'A' 'G' 'B' 'A(2)' 'F' and 'G(2)' chords are always done on a 12-string acoustic throughout the whole song, while the 'B5' 'A5' 'F5' and 'G5' are always electric. A note on the chorus; The powerchords ('B5' 'A5' 'F5' and 'G5') are doubled by their full-chord equivalents ('B' 'A(2)' 'F' and 'G(2)') on acoustic. The Edge has some kind of pedal (Wah, phaser, flange...???) going during the Intro and Rhy,. Fig. 2, but I don't know what it is. Towards the end of the Intro, is sounds like the rhythm differs from what I have tabbed, but it's just the pedal motion which makes it sound that way. So without any further ado, here it is..... Chord Legend: A [x02220] G [32000x] B [799877] A(2)[577655] F [133211] G(2)[355433] B5[799xxx] A5 [577xxx] F5[133xxx] G5 [355xxx] All guitars tune down 1/2 step: Eb Ab Db Gb Bb Eb Intro: (Electric) Eb|------------------------------------------------------| Bb|------------------------------------------------------| Gb|------------------------------------------------------| Db|------------------------------------------------------| Ab|----7----7----7----7----7----7----7----7----7----7----| Eb|-0----0----0----0----0----0----0----0----0----0----0--| Main Riff Sequence: (Electric, doubled by a 12-string acoustic) __________________________ ________________________ |1, 2, 3 |4 Eb|--------------------------|-------------------------| Bb|--------------------------|-------------------------| Gb|o-x-x-9-x-7-x-4----------o|--x-x-9-x-7-x-4----------| Db|o-x-x-9-x-7-x-4-x-x-5-5--o|--x-x-9-x-7-x-4-x-x-3-3--| Ab|--x-x-7-x-5-x-2-x-x-5-5---|--x-x-7-x-5-x-2-x-x-3-3--| Eb|--------------------3-3---|--------------------1-1--| Rhythm Figure 1: (12-String Acoustic) Eb|-------------------------------| Bb|-------------------------------| Gb|-------------------------------| Db|-------------------------------| Ab|--7---7-7-5-7---5-7-7-7---5-5--| Eb|--0---0-0-0-0---0-0-0-0---0-0--| Verse 1: (w/ Rhy.

The ever so famous intro guitar track is performed with a Digitech Whammy-Wah pedal (the early version of the GP-100). The main chord riff is actually simply the power chords played as follows: E5 [121414XXX] D5 [101212XXX] B5 [799XXX] G5 [133XXX] I only know this because I stood in front of Edge at the POPMART show. Also, the riff played at the line: "You're a headache" is as follows: A G You're a headache In a suitcase E---------------------------|---------------------- B---------------------------|---------------------- G----------------6\7-9-x-9~~|------------4\5-6-x-6~ D---------------------------|---------------------- A---------------------------|---------------------- E---------------------------|---------------------- That's all...the rest is pretty good though :) michael.hong@utoronto.ca ====================================================== From: am560@freenet.carleton.ca (Glen Palmer) This is the transcription for U2's new song 'Hold me, Thrill me, Kiss me, Kill me'.

The actual lyrics should be: You don't know how you took it You just know what you got Oh, Lordy, you've been stealing from the thieves and you got caught In the headlights Of a stretch car You're a star Dressing like your sister Living like a tart They don't know what you're doing Babe, it must be art You're a headache In a suitcase You're a star Oh, girl don't be shy You don't have to go blind Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me You don't know how you got here You just know you want out Believing in yourself almost as much as you doubt You're a big smash You wear it like a rash Star Oh, girl don't be shy It takes a crowd to cry Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me Now won't you tell me, Jesus To go down on one knee But they want their money back if you're alive by thirty-three And you're turning tricks With you're crucifix You're a star Oh child Of course you know, child You don't have to unite, love Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me Matt Zane I think I have the correct tab for Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me.
