I'm currently feelin: curious curious
I'm currently hearin: Red Light-U2

I'm trying to convert my friend into a U2 fan. She says that Elevation spoiled U2 for her.
" 'a mole, digging in a hole, digging up my soul?' Please!"
So I e-mailed her the lyrics to Acrobat and Love is Blindness. She says she likes them both...does any one have suggestions to what songs I should make her listen to?

You could point out that Elevation also uses some rather sophisticated imagery.

'I and I' is actually Rastafarian (I believe) for a term that communicates you're one with the universe/God and open to receive its truth &c. (leelah would know more about this than me)

How about Running to Stand Still? I love the imagery there. Same with something like 'One Tree Hill' which combines visions of the Apocalypse with N.Z. Fun.

Dirty Day, Stay (Faraway, So Close)... I could go on. But I won't.

Yes, running to stand still is a good one. So are the other ones you mentioned. Thanks =D

Hm, my suggestions are Please, Until the End of the World, Last Night on Earth, Kite, The Wanderer, and perhaps Gone and Staring at the Sun. Basically anything from Achtung Baby - Pop for me will do it though :)

Heh, all U2 songs are so great it's sort of hard to choose :)

Can you not lend her your U2 collection? I found that every single lyric in Achtung Baby awoke my senses when I first heard it... however, you must lend her The Joshua Tree and The Unforgettable Fire... and War.

The thing about U2 is that no one album represents the band. You can write off a song, and you can write off an album (if you wish)... but you simply can't write off the band without giving everything else they wrote a chance.

I absolutely agree. Couldn't have said it better myself.
