"With Or Without You/Love Will Tear Us Apart"(Live)
I was just listening to a live boot version of "With Or Without You" on the Rock's Hottest Ticket: U2 Live in Chicago 1987 boot and couldn't help but think about the tiny snippet Bono sang of Joy Division's "Love Will Tear Us Apart" at the end of WOWY. I guess it was just appropriate that the song struck a chord in me considering today, 18th of May, happens to be Ian Curtis' *23rd* Death Anniversary. And to many of you, Joy Division may not be familiar but I suppose they were very influential to U2 at the start. If any of you saw the video documentary of NewOrder's Story from 1993 you'll see a special guest cameo of Bono in the film talking about the band and Ian Curtis as one of his main influences. Nevertheless, today is a day of remembrance for one of the greatest singers/songwriters that ever lived.
Rest In Peace, Ian C. 18.5.80. Sleep tonight and May Your Dreams be realized.
