Back to Cedarwood Road

On September 9, 2014 the very first time I listened to U2’s Songs of Innocence, “Cedarwood Road” immediately stood out from the rest of the songs and was my favorite. Oddly enough not because of the lyrics, which is usually what gets me about a U2 song (I didn’t know the [continue reading]

U2 Song Skips

I got into a conversation on Twitter with David Franklin and Chip Swain about what songs we skip on U2 albums. I think it may have started by one of us saying we didn’t skip any songs on Songs of Innocence and then it just snowballed from there. It’s not that we don’t like these [continue reading]

“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]

My Favorite U2 Songs

The other day I ranked every U2 album by ranking each song. Even though I ranked each song, that was more about ranking each U2 album. Now I want to share my favorite three songs off each album. This time I am including the b-sides because they are some of my favorites. THE JOSHUA TREE – I [continue reading]

Get on Your Boots – my U2 A to Z

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. It was sort of my anthem as I traveled across the country driving to all 16 US U2 360 shows. I coupled it [continue reading]

Can’t Help Falling in Love – my U2 A to Z

Even though Can’t Help Falling in Love is credited to Bono and not U2, I am going to include it as part of my U2 favorites. U2 played it on the ZooTv tour. In fact, one of my greatest memories of the ZooTv tour is when Bono knelt in front of me (I was in the 3rd row) and sang Can’t Help [continue reading]
