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 chorus [continue reading]

Gone – my spiritual journey with U2

My third favorite U2 song is Gone. I love the lyrics to Gone, but my favorite (and one of my favorite lyrics of any song) is “What you thought was freedom is just greed.” I also love Gone because it reminds me of Elvis Presley, my other passion. He always felt guilty for all that he had [continue reading]

N is for New Year’s Day

My favorite U2 song that begins with N is New Year’s Day. It used to be one of my top five favorite U2 songs, but it has now dropped down to the top ten – maybe even a little lower than that. In those early days of being a U2 fan, New Year’s Day was one I loved and listened to [continue reading]

My favorite U2 song that begins with G is a tie between Gone and Get on Your Boots.

Gone has one of my favorite lines ever, “What you thought was freedom is just greed.” I [continue reading]

C is for Can’t Help Falling in Love

My favorite U2 song that begins with C is Can’t Help Falling in Love. I kind of cheated a little here because the version that is my favorite was actually credited to Bono, but U2 did play it on the ZooTv tour. In fact, one of my greatest memories of the ZooTv tour is when Bono knelt in front of [continue reading]

B is for Bad

My favorite U2 song that begins with B is Bad. It has always been one of my favorite U2 songs. I love everything about it, the music and the lyrics. It is a song about addiction, but I relate to it as a song about obsession – which is pretty much the same thing. I have many obsessions – U2, [continue reading]
