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]

J is for Jean Genie

My favorite U2 song that begins with J is Jean Genie. To be honest, Jean Genie is not one of my favorite U2 songs, but none of the U2 songs that start with J are my favorites. I saw David Bowie’s Jean Genie on the discography on u2.com. I picked Jean Genie because I really liked it when I heard [continue reading]

H is for Heartland

My favorite U2 song that begins with H is Heartland. In fact, Heartland is one of my top five favorite U2 songs. I love it because it’s about Memphis.

G is for Gone and Get on Your Boots

My favorite U2 song that begins with G is a tie between Gone and Get on Your Boots. Gone has always been one of my top five favorite U2 songs, but now Get on Your Boots has snuck in because I love it live. Gone has one of my favorite lines ever, “What you thought was freedom is just greed.” I [continue reading]

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 appreciate it until the 360 tour [continue reading]

E is for Electrical Storm

My favorite U2 song that begins with E is Electrical Storm. I have to admit the entire reason it is one of my favorites is because of the video. Every time I listen to Electrical Storm, the video plays in my head. And the video is all about Larry. Larry wet, Larry in the tub, Larry in the ocean, [continue reading]

D is for Deep in the Heart

My favorite U2 song that begins with D is Deep in the Heart. It is a B side off I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For, my all-time favorite U2 song. I love the B sides off The Joshua Tree, my favorite U2 album, just as much as, if not more than, the songs that made it on the actual album. [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]

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.
