My U2 A to Z Blogging Challenge Recap

I love blogging the A to Z Blog Challenge - blogging everyday in April, except Sundays, on a specific theme. I loved doing it last year, and I enjoyed it even more this year. I think I enjoy the challenge so much because I am one who likes to to lists things, rank my favorites. This year’s theme,…

Achtung Baby – my U2 A to Z

A favorite of mine about U2 that begins with A is Achtung Baby. Sorry Adam fans. When AB was released almost 21 1/2 years ago in November 1991, I must admit that I did not like it.  It was such a departure from The Joshua Tree and Rattle and Hum, and actually from all of their previous albums. I had to listen…

Happy 21st Birthday Achtung Baby!

I must admit that when Achtung Baby was released in November of 1991, I did not like it. It was such a departure from The Joshua Tree and Rattle and Hum, and actually from all of their previous albums. I had to listen to it several times before I fell in love with it, and then AB was the only…

My Favorite U2 songs A to Z

I had a great time in April blogging each day about my 26 favorite U2 songs in the A to Z challenge. So much fun in fact that I wanted to list my favorite U2 songs (each highlighted with links back to the original posts) in this one blog post with the addition of honorable…

S is for Summer Rain

My favorite U2 song that begins with S is Summer Rain. It is a b side off one of my favorite U2 albums All That You Can’t Leave Behind. I love Summer Rain for its lyrics. I can’t even pick out my favorite line because the entire song is perfectly written. It says exactly how…

M is for Mysterious Ways

My favorite U2 song that begins with M is Mysterious Ways. I have always liked Mysterious Ways. It is not one of my favorite U2 songs, not even one of my favorites off Achtung Baby, but it is my favorite M U2 song. It is another U2 song that I fell in love after I…

F is for Fly, The

My favorite U2 song that begins with F is Fly, The – uh I mean The Fly. I had to cheat a little with my favorite U2 F song because there aren’t any U2 songs that begin with F that are my favorites. I love The Fly because of its lyrics, but I didn’t truly…

A is for Acrobat

My favorite U2 song that begins with A is Acrobat. It is one of my favorite songs off of Actung Baby, which is one of my favorite albums. I was lucky enough to hear Acrobat live in Hershey, PA sitting outside the stadium listening to rehearsals for the ZooTv Outside Broadcast tour rehearsal concert. I…

ACHTUNG BABY

Achtung Y’all!

Achtung Baby was released in 1991. I had to listen to it a few times before I fell in love with it, which I did. It had a completely different sound from any of U2’s previous albums, but the lyrics were amazing. And for me, music is all about lyrics and drums. Who’s Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses is still…
