1. I’m about to date myself as the oldest member of this forum. The first song I saw/heard was on MTV. It was ‘Gloria’. MTV was new and you kids probably don’t remember – but they used to play videos. In fact, the local video station had only U2 videos it seemed. So, I saw some rare gems like ‘Celebration’ all the time.
2. The song that hooked me was ‘Surrender’.
3. There was a raw feel to it. It seemed urban and desperate. I loved Edge’s guitar work in it. And it boasts some of my favorite lyrics in it. ‘Oh, the city's alight With lovers and lies Bright blue eyes Oh, the city is bright It's brighter than day tonight’.
4. What makes me stay? I did stray during the 1990’s. I was all caught up in the grunge sound and Pop was far from that. Plus I was dirt poor during the Popmart Tour. U2 and I grew up together. I started listening to them when I was 11. I’ll be 34 next week. We’ve been through relationships, death and birth together. I told my fiancé that U2 were my boys and they’ve been around longer than him. They come first. 
5. Well, I started off as a Bono girl – I love his ideas and heart. Then I moved to Edge – he is goofy, calm and a techno-geek. Then I appreciated Larry – he is gorgeous in a way most men never tough, his dry wit and his commitment to me as a fan – and an older fan touches me.
6. I live in U2’s second hometown – Boston. We have adopted them as our own. I hang in the pubs they hang when they’ve in town. When U2 come to town, the radio stations play nothing but weeks before, during and little after they are here.

You did not date yourself that bad, and I am not that much younger than you... I can just imagine the fun that Boston has when U2 comes to town! Have you been to a live show yet and/or are you planning to go when they go to they go to the Fleet Center in the Fall? I have added you as a friend.

Hello, I will friend you as well. I saw them in Boston in the spring, Ireland in the summer and will see them twice in Boston this fall. Still trying to score those December tickets. Where are you from?
