1) What was the very first U2 song that you remember hearing?
I think it might have been With Or Without You. Not sure when though. And I do remember hearing I Still Haven't Found... And HMTMKMKM when it was just 'that song from Batman' and not one of the sexiest things ever (but I was only young!).

2) If different than #1, what song convinced you that you liked U2?
Um... Either WOWY or One, I'd say.

3) Name something about the song in #2 (or #1, if applicable) that hooked you on U2?
WOWY - I loved the fact it was a slighty twisted love song and the vocal is amazing. And One... well, it's just THE song, isn't it? It's gorgeous and just something you want to hear over and over. And I just wanted to know more! I didn't buy a ton of albums at the time but I got the Best Of and took it from there.

4) What makes you stick with U2 even though they have changed or evolved over the years?
It's the very changing and evolving that makes me want to stick around and see what happens next ;)

5) What band member do you like most and Why?
I like all of them! Honestly, I do. I know my user name is bonoffee and I spend a ridiculously-silly amount of time staring at pictures of Larry but I have days when I love one of them more than the others for whatever reason! I mean, I love Bono because he's so passionate and talented, and he's funny too. And Edge is just amazingly talented, and I find someone who can play that well rather attractive. Larry, I love his attitude. Adam, he's really lovely and talented as well. So erm, can't choose, but you got a nice essay there ;)

6) Where are you from and how much radio airplay does U2 get in your area?
I'm from Scotland (and therefore the UK as well) and depends what radio you listen to. If they have a single out they probably get it played a bit on the major radio stations, and some of the 'oldies' stations will sometimes play older u2 tracks like WOWY. Last night though one of the big stations played Streets and I turned it up so loud, haha. So yeah, I suppose if you listen long enough you'll get some u2 but I hardly ever do, really.

Have you ever seen them live? I can understand why it is hard to choose a best band member, as each has an important place in the success of the band! I do agree that WOWY is one of their top hits of all time... I have added you as a friend.

I've seen them live twice. Once in 2001 when they came to Hartford, CT, USA, and this past year when they came to Boston. I'm going to see them again in December when they come to Hartford and I can't wait!
