U2 has always been political and worked with those in power in the USA. However, the current climate isn`t really something they have a taste for. Good on ya Bono, Edge, Larry, & Adam.

This is their latest video.

Track: 'Get Out of Your Own Way'---U2



Here is a clip from an interview on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' they did concerning the current occupant of the White House.

I frisbee'd Songs of Innocence into the CD tray yesterday for the first time in an age. I've heard stray
comments (from unreliable quarters) that it was a flawed album. F***ed if I noticed that yesterday.

On April 4 it will be the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. It gets a mention in the last verse of the track. The other track is a song written for him. From the album The Unforgettable Fire

Track: 'Pride (In the Name of Love)'---U2



Track: 'MLK'---U2

The first U2 album I bought and heard in full. A few memories there... And two great and sincere tributes to Dr. King.

In a recent interview, activist John Lewis said, "I truly believe that the young people and women will get us [to the dream Dr. King spoke of]. We're not quite there yet."

This is heartwarming. I must confess to neglecting my U2 duty these days (to say nothing of my BB duty). I suppose these things come in waves...

Basically my feelings towards a major clusterfuck in the making concerning the recent news about my favorite show (The Walking Dead, for those not in the know.)

Track: 'Numb'---U2

There's a current topic at PSF about pop/rock singalongs and anthems and the difference between them. Oddly no one had mentioned U2 until I did today, like they're a dirty word or something. I'd say they were the most anthemic band of them all.

I've been listening to The Joshua Tree while cooking and eating and this one jumped out at me as an anthem par excellence:

From that same album, the master tape of "Where The Streets Have no Name" was almost wiped by a frustrated Eno. There's another episode, according to guitarfool2002 at Smiley, where someone saved the tapes of "WTSHNN" from a fire in the studio. He can't remember where he read it in the early '90s. Maybe his memory is playing tricks on him. But what a fabulous opening track. The Mysterious Ways of Innocence and Experience of U2 Rolleyes

Ooooh!! I couldn't remember this from my marathon watching session in '85, from start to finish of Live Aid. CriminaI, I know. Anyway, I watched it again last night---wow.

This glorious anthem (and album opener) was quite high in this year's Top 2000 that they broadcast annually in the Netherlands:

"Grace" is the closing track on 2000's All That You Can't Leave Behind, a wonderfully understated album:

It's great to revisit some U2 after far too long. From No Line on the Horizon, this is magnificent in not just name. Curiously, both times I've heard it in public were in French megastores:

I bumped into this gorgeous track while posting at Hoffman, no idea how I got to it (some algorithm, no doubt--they're everywhere). Criminal I know but I occasionally forget just how good U2 are!
