War is significant to my U2 fandom because the same day I bought The Joshua Tree cassette, I also bought Under a Blood Red Sky, which was a concert on the War Tour. That tape was just as important to me as JT. Although I prefer U2’s music post-War, it has a special place in my heart and was crucial in molding me into a U2 fan. My favorites off War are New Year’s Day, Two Hearts Beat as One, Sunday Bloody Sunday, and 40. Although I appreciate the Under a Blood Red Sky concert video more than the War album itself. In fact, when I think of War, I actually think of the Under a Blood Red Sky concert.
This blog post is part of my A to Z April Challenge about ‘My U2′ – what I love about U2 from A to Z. Thanks for stopping by. I am also blogging the A to Z Challenge on my other blog Deena’s Days about ‘My Music’ – music I love from A to Z.
