curitiba bus stop

try to find at least one positive...

I've been slagging Rattle and Hum in a couple of comments to other posts. I admit it, I think it was a throw-away album. But, there is one thing that I absolutely love about that record. I don't know about the CD, but on the vinyl version, on Side 1, there's an inscription by the run-off groove that reads We love you A.L.K. A lovely tribute to Anna Louise Kelly, their Product & Art Coordinator.

With so much anticipation for the new album, that’s still just over a month away, let’s share some nostalgia. I was wondering what was the first U2 song ever that you can remember hearing and what was the first single to be released after you had become a fan? *grins* and while we’re at it what was the last U2 song you listened to?

First one I remember hearing was Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me when Batman Forever came out and I remember thinking at the time that it was weird and scary :p With or Without You got played a lot on old Friends too, but the first one I heard when I knew who they were was Sweetest Thing.
Hehe so the first one I heard when I was a fan was Beautiful Day.
And I wish I could say that their last song I listened to was Shadows and Tall Trees, but I played Vertigo again before I went out this morning.
U2 is love

I was watching VH1 a little bit ago...
2 programs involving U2, which will be on again tonight, if anyone is interested.

First, there is a show...Politics: A Pop Culture History which will be on again tonight at 10pm eastern standard time. Now, I only caught the end of this...but they showed Bono a few many times.

Second, after the Politics show is The 25 greatest protest songs, on at 11 pm est.
U2 is number 8 on the countdown, with Sunday Bloody Sunday.
But, Bono is showed before then for Do they know it's christmas, and Sun City.

Just thought I'd share, in case anyone was interested.

Hi Hi

I've been reading this community for a couple of months now through a friend of mine's LJ Friends page. Haha...ok maybe I shouldn't have said that; here's hoping he doesn't come over and hit my over the head with something hard.

Anyway I thought it was high time that I plucked up the courage to join the community and say hi. So 'Hi everyone!' :) I'm really not too good at introducing myself, there's something extremely nerve wracking about it. It might have something to do with my primary school days *laughs* but ooo we don't need to get into that.

My current fav song- ok my fav couple of songs is the blended live version of Bad,40 and Where the Streets Have No Name from the Electrical Storm single. Mostly because it sends shivers down my spine and the crowd is absolutely incredible. Speaking of which my friend, who's friends page I was peeking at (spying on ;) ) gave me that version. He's totally obsessed I tell you. *grins*

Ok I think I've bored you enough with my ramblings. Lastly as a peace offering I got sent this today! It’s from the multimedia page of Maxtv.com. It contains the Ipod ad and about a 30 second clip of the Vertigo remix of U2 in Lisbon. >.> I don't know if it's been posted before, but there it is!

Thanks guys.


P.S I found out also that U2 are playing about 10 arena style concerts nationally in Australia around Oct/Nov. next year. SO EXCITED!
