Achtung Baby

November 19, 1991 – Achtung Baby

Achtung Baby was released on November 19, 1991. I was very excited for the release of Achtung Baby as I was now old enough at 19 to finally go to a U2 concert. My mom wouldn’t let me go to the Joshua Tree tour because I was only 14. But I was even more excited to finally have new U2 music. I [continue reading]

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 [continue reading]

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 [continue reading]

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.

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 heard it live. Actually 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]

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 [continue reading]
