U2 Boston MeetUp featuring Joshua Tree

Our U2 Boston MeetUp was supposed to be a pre Tour and pre Jimmy Fallon celebration, but Bono had the poor judgement to go cycling (and falling off) the day before U2’s residency of the Tonight Show was to begin (now it’s cancelled due to Bono’s arm surgery). So our U2 Boston [continue reading]

Someone suggested I rank U2’s album covers, which seems less controversial than eras and band members, so that is what I am going to do today. I’ll save eras and band members for next week because it has been a long week, and I don’t think I have enough fight left in me. Here is [continue reading]

L is for Luminous Times

My favorite U2 song that begins with L is Luminous Times. It is one of my top five U2 songs, actually it is second behind I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For. Luminous Times, a b-side off The Joshua Tree, is the song that gives me chills every time I hear it, even though I have [continue reading]
