“Do They Know It’s Christmas?”

Band Aid’s “Do They Know It’s Christmas?” will always be my favorite Christmas song. I even loved it before I knew who U2 were. I remember watching the making of it on MTV when I was 12, then watching the Live Aid concert the following summer. Now when I hear it (and better [continue reading]

  U2 has such amazing lyrics. In fact, that is why I love them so much (that and Larry of course).

Get on Your Boots – my U2 A to Z

LET ME IN THE SOUND I love the song Get on Your Boots off No Line on the Horizon specifically for the line “Let me in the sound.” It summarized my entire three-month road trip on the U2 360 tour in 2011.

Breathe – my spiritual journey with U2

After Get On Your Boots, Breathe is my favorite song off No Line on the Horizon. I loved when U2 opened with Breathe for the 360 Tour in 2009, mainly because Larry walked on stage first by himself and started playing the drums. I love the lyrics of Breathe, especially “I’ve found [continue reading]

Heartland – my spiritual journey with U2

My fifth favorite U2 song is Heartland. To me this song is about Memphis, my favorite city. I always think about the scene from Rattle and Hum when Edge and Bono are on the hill overlooking the Mississippi River and then U2 tour Graceland while Heartland is playing in the background.   The [continue reading]
