How did you hear it? (On the radio, your iPod, CD played at your New Year's party or whatever!)

Why was that song played and does it have any special meaning for you?

Vertigo

Part B:

I went to see fireworks at local castle and when I drove back to home I turned on the radio just to hear the first few seconds of the song. Sang it out loud all the way!


Part C:
Why was that song played and does it have any special meaning for you?

Hopefully this year will be a vertigo-year. Vertigo is a song that always makes me smile! I love that song!

A. Vertigo

B. my cellphone

C. New Year's Eve is my birthday, and my friends know how much I love U2. Some of them were at the party I was at, but others were together downtown, so they called me after midnight and had everyone sing it over the phone. :)

Ha, good questions!

Well, I was singing in the bath earlier (why the hell have I made so many LJ posts lately about being in the bath?!) and it occurred to me that I hadn't played New Year's Day yet, so I sang it... and when I went back to my room and switched the radio on, funnily enough that song was just playing. *g*

As for part C, funnily enough I had also been thinking about why exactly I love that song so much. It's probably one of my top five U2 songs, and it occurred to me that it's one of the only ones I adore purely for the music (and the fact that I can sing it well) - there's not really any personal meaning for me in the lyrics, which is what usually makes a song extra special. This one blows me away just because it sounds *so* good!

I sang NYD to my friends who gave me some serious shifty eyes.
In reality, I just finished listening to The Electric Co. on iTunes party shuffle. I'm not one for picking out songs purposely. :P
EXCEPT, with all my iPod replacements last year, Vertigo was always the first song I heard on them (3).

"One" , followed by Sunday Bloody Sunday and With or Without you... i was at a house party and a bunch of us were downstairs playing poker, and the video came on tv, and it was on some Euro satellite music video station.

"New Years Day" on my iTunes. I had it ready and everything. I didn't play it because it's New Years-themed, but because it's been one of my favorites ever since I was a little kid.

I had thought I only had the single version on my iTunes, since I had yet to rip all of my CDs, but it ended up being the War album version, which is even better. ^_^

1. New Year's Day
2. The party I was at played it immediately after Auld Lang Syne...
3. I wasnt expecting it, but obviously the host of the party liked it and I was excited because I always make a point to listen to it.

A: Where the Streets Have No Name
B: Video downloaded from iTunes
C: It's the U2 song that's had the most impact on me... as a student focusing on sociology and social work, I long for a day where the streets will indeed have no name and all people can be treated as equals. And the video atop the liqour store in California is just amazing.

Walk On.

Part B:
How did you hear it? (On the radio, your iPod, CD played at your New Year's party or whatever!)


Total coincidence. I turned on the car and it was on.

Part C:
Why was that song played and does it have any special meaning for you?

This song is incredibly meaningful to me. It inspires me and gives me hope when I feel like there isn't any...

I heard "Some Days Are Better Than Others" as I was driving home from the New Years' party I went to. It was played because I was listening to Zooropa, and it really doesn't have any special meaning for me yet.

A: I haven't exactly *heard* it; I read the lyrics - I don't have "Achtung Baby" yet, but I want to hear "Acrobat". (It's my new year's resolution - to "dream out loud")

B and C: Heh. Seems I've answered these already, :-p

Well it took me until January 2nd, but here ya go:

Ultra Violet (Light My Way) :) ... good way to start the year.

Internet (Yahoo) Radio station

I rated it 100 points out of 100 possible. Very few songs get the full 100 points, but oddly enough, U2 does it on a regular basis. :)
