They never topped 'New Years Day' for me. You can't beat a song about WW2!

i cant beleive the news today, why cant i just close my eyes and make it go away?(sunday bl sunday)
The intro to new yrs day still sends shivers up and down me...excellent lyrics, great message and unbeleivable melodies ...they were for me at least magicians of creating nothing out of 4 chords on a synthesizer - cue the edge to round it all off with that gutteral, raw, drowning, wavering something or other. ooooooo yeah.

the build up at the beginning of new year's day is certainly something i cannot describe but only to say it's definitely awesome.

and their song all i want is you, has a great ending. i think it's the strings that does it. from the moment where bono shouts YOUU! I WANT IS.. YOUUUU...it just goes on and on and then slowly fades to the ending. might sound cheesy but i love it dearly.
and i never appreciated the video for that song until i was older.

another tune i love it BAD. bono's voice is such an ocean of feelings. [Smile]

the ending of ultra violet on achtung baby is awsome and who can forget the lyrics from tryin to throw your arms around the world - a woman needs a man, like a fish needs a bicycle when your tryin to throw your arms around the world, how far ya gonna go before you lose your way back home ...... another great lyrical master piece. And as for ONE . . . did i dissapoint you or put a bad taste in your mouth, you act like youve never had love and you want me to go without...just fantastic ...its going on in the car tomorrow on the way to work now.

It's a U2 kind of day, been hearing a lot of U2 everywhere I go lately.

With Or Without You has got to be one of the best love songs ever.

Sitting in a quiet place, listening to U2 love or slower songs is bliss. [Smile]

My all time favorite band. Just saw these guys in concert a couple of weeks ago....the last concert on the tour and the first time they ever came anywhere near the East Coast, Canada....a dream fulfilled...they were amazing. Sunday Bloody Sunday is one of my all time fav songs....I have every CD they've put out. * They played a unique set for the concert as well, playing a couple songs they rarely perform live.....sweet! * I'm not a big fan of crowds, but braved a crowd of 80,000 (with my pregnant wife at that) to see these guys.....and had a great spot fairly close to the stage.....awsome, awsome, awsome.....

I've always loved U2......my mom has always been a fan and installed it onto me. I used to sit at the record player with Joshua Tree for hours.

A few years ago my mom went to Scotland and saw U2 in Ireland......she came back with a huge cross tattoo on her back and her belly button pierced awwww mom reliving her youth haha

I had "With Or Without You" on 45 record. It is still somewhere at my parent's house. It was really the first time I became aware of U2. Joshua Tree is a timepiece for sure.

I actually heard "With or Without You" while shopping the other day and it was strange...it was like the song resonnated with me for the first time ever. I really listened to the words, now as an adult, as opposed to a child with a 45 on her turntable...hits alot closer to home now.

A brilliant, brilliant song, susceptible to much interpretation, be it transcendent or spiritual. My favorite interpretation is that it is a methaphor for the state of things between Ireland and the UK.

this is my favorite U2 song. i never get tired of listening to it. it makes me feel like a 12 year old again watching the vid of empty-v.

joshua tree isn't my favorite album, but i think i appreciate it more now than i did when it was released. it was a little too popular/commercial for my liking back then.

Have to dig out my old U2 albums. Some stuff on Unforgettable Fire and October that I am dying to hear. Feel like I have grown up with that band in how frequent there music gets played and all the memories associated with it. Always found it fascinating that the Virgin Prunes which the Edge's brother was in, were childhood friends, yet their music is much weirder and darker than what U2 did.
