1) What do you think of this song and the importance it plays to U2 being who they are today?
I think it definitely got them noticed on a political scale. Without songs like Sunday Bloody Sunday, I doubt U2 would have the following and credibility that they have now.

2a) Where did you first hear this song (and if you say Live8 where else)?
I'll always remember watching the recorded Live Aid concert and seeing them sing this. Other than that, no moment really sticks out as the first time I heard it. I was raised on U2, and this song is just set in my memory.

2b) Has anyone heard this song live and in person?
I just saw them for the first time this year, in Vancouver, and hearing them perform it was so fantastic. Bono stopped mid-song to break into some ad-libbed religious piece that was a little confusing (where he pulled on the "Coexist" bandana) but in all, it was great.

3) Where do you rank this song against all other U2 songs?
It's probably not my favourite song, but I really love it. From that era, though, I think I prefer New Year's Day.

Who was it that influenced you to listen U2 in the first place?

My mom, definitely. I'm a second generation U2 fan, and we've had their music in our house for practically my whole life. I had no choice, I've always had to listen to them. ;)

Kudos to your Mom! U2 is great and that is exactly why they deserve/are in the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame... Bono will also get a Nobel Peace prize for his Africa work before it is all said and done. :)
