Is Sara a sequel to Sad-Eyed Lady Of The Lowlands?

Edit: Or to Blood On The Tracks (especially Idiot Wind) as a sort of excuse?

Never confirmed I don't think but many believe it is. I think it was.

Not a sequel...……..but, as Bruce put it, an answer

Would anyone other than Geldof have the bollocks/arrogance to do a sequel to "Waterloo Sunset"?

U2's God Part II as sequel to John Lennon's God.

The U2 song is a horrible song btw, representatieve of eveything many people dislike about U2 (i.e. about Bono). (Saying this as a U2 fan)(not a very diehard U2 fan but still)

I think it may be coincidence, but U2's "Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own" plays well as a sequel (or more accurately answer song) to Bruce's "Independence Day".

I know the U2 song was Bono's song for his dying father, but there are elements there that make me wonder if Bono at least subconsciously had the Bruce song as reference. The young man in Bruce's song is asking for dad to let him go on his own in the chorus... in the U2 song, the older son is asking the exact opposite of his dad in the chorus. The symmetry of the second verse in each song is also interesting... in ID it's " we were just too much of the same kind". In SYCMIOYO, it's " if we weren't so alike, I'd like you a whole lot more".

One Man One Biscuit released an album called Trouble Over Bridgewater.

I guess that's a response.

Is it out of line to say I think this has to be one of the most beautiful women who ever walked this planet?

Not so much a sequel, but examining the situation from different perspectives by different songwriters.  And Uncle Frank was first.

Both songs are in my list of the best songs ever written.
