is there a reason behind the similarity between the movie poster for afred hitchcock's "Vertigo" and the target of u2's "vertigo"?

or am i just thinking about it too hard?

That's really funny, because I took a desktop publishing class last summer where we had to create businesses and figure out how we would promote them. I created a rock band and named it Vertigo, with the Hitchcock movie in mind - mainly because, at the college where I was at the time, there was a band called North by Northwest. I thought it was really funny that U2 came out with a song called "Vertigo" a couple months later.

The movie is about a man's fear of heights and his obsession over a dead woman, so I don't know...

Well, is there any other way to visualize the experience that is vertigo (in the medical sense)?

They could have gotten inspiration for their colours of the album from the movie poster but I'm not sure. You'd have to clarify that with the band.
