Conversion!

Ok so this is sort of like the flip side of my post from yesterday (people who slag off u2). Today, I'm interested in whether any of you guys has successfully converted (partially or the whole way, dude!) someone else into a u2 fan? How did you do it? Was it a slow and painstaking process or did you do the more sensible thing and tie them up until they admitted Larry makes hitting things sound extremely sexy?

I'm kinda proud because I thought I was useless at this until I started sending a few songs to a girl I chat to on MSN who didn't really know them at all. I sent her 'One' first and then 'Stuck in a Moment' to ease her in, hehe, and she liked them both (and thought she'd heard them before as well). I told her about my obsessive lurve for Achtung Baby and now I'm sending her the album, a song every night usually. She's liked them all so far (last one I sent was Until the End of the World *pauses to sigh at the song*) so it's going well I think! And she only knew Bono, so I also sent her a pic and gave her a name lesson, hehe! I think it helped that the pic included topless!Larry and I don't think she minded too much ;)

That's my only success so far... I mean my best friend's had me copy Bomb and the 1980-90 Best Of for her, but I think she only likes the obvious ones (WOWY etc). We were in the pub once and Elevation came on and I got ridiculously excited, and she had no idea why. :|

Ha, I rambled. :D
