I borrowed my brother's car yesterday and was listening to his Sirius satellite radio. I was browsing the country stations and nearly died laughing when I saw "U2: Yahweh" come up on the channel. I thought maybe the category had froze or something but nope...everything worked fine.


So yah...U2 is now considered country on satellite radio, lol. :-O

Song(s) of the day - Openers

You know you're a U2 fan because you perk up when The Arcade Fire's "Wake Up" comes on the radio, and you have to kind of remind yourself that you're in your car, not the concert hall...

You know your DJ is ALSO a U2 fan when he follows that up with COBL...

In keeping with themes lately....
I know very few of us have been around long enough to have attended every U2 headline tour. I sure as hell haven't. For the ones you haven't been present for... try and imagine it eh?

U2; one band & five hit singles in Canada

U2 have got five hit singles on the Canadian charts at the moment. Four are to be expected (Vertigo, SYCMIOYO, All Because of You & City of Blinding Lights), but there's one unexecpted single as well (If God Will Send His Angels*). :D

*HMV is currently selling overstock of the single in all of their Ottawa locations (I can only imagine the same is occuring in other Canadian cities).

And yes, there was no real point to this post. ;)

"The Greatest U2 Song"

The November 3rd issue of Rolling Stone is awesome. I haven't read the whole interview yet, but there is a section where Bono critiques each U2 album. He also talks about his favorite songs, and names one the "Greatest U2 Song". I am not sure if I am surprised by the answer. It's in my top 5, but I don't think its what most fans would say if they were asked "What do you think is Bono's favorite U2 song?"

Anyway, I'm not going to say which it is (aren't I evil?!), because that will ruin the surprise. But I'd like to see what some of you guess Bono says is "The Greatest U2 Song."
