More music

I just heard U2's Vertigo song, and find it funny how he starts the song..

U2 Vertigo Lyrics
-----------------------------------------------


Unos, dos, tres, catorce - (it's funny he sings one, two, three and then jumps to 14 - anyone have a clue why?

.
.
.
.

Hello, Hello
Hola! (Spanish for Hello)
I'm at a place called vertigo (¿Dónde está?) (Where is it?]
It's everything I wish I didn't know
Except you give me something I can feel
Feel

The night is full of holes
Those bullets rip the sky
Of ink with gold
They twinkle as the boys play rock and roll
They know that they can't dance
At least they know

I can sell the beat
I'm askin' for the cheque
Girl with crimson nails
Has Jesus 'round the neck
Swinging to the music
Swinging to the music
Woooao


Anyone have an idea the significance of the Spanish epiteths?

Well, if Bono's french is anything like my own, he probably thought it meant "four"! - SBGG

Maybe this is the answer to your question about the beginning of the song:

"Uno, dos, tres, catorce," said Bruce Springsteen, quoting the Spanish countdown in U2's recent hit, "Vertigo," as he inducted the band into the rock hall with a loving, humorous tribute.

"The translation is one, two, three, fourteen. That is the correct math for rock 'n' roll. The whole had better equal a lot more than the sum of its parts - or else you're just rubbing two sticks together."
