I'm currently hearin: u2 - with or without you (live)

i think that what i've always loved most about U2 (in my 4-year old fandom in my 17-year old life) is that...they're not just a band. i can easily say i love coldplay and pink floyd...but it's as if for so many of us, U2 becomes a religion...and bono is god hehe. even watching them in concert doesn't just entertain you, it deeply moves you. sometimes i wish i had been growing up during the 80s so I could have grown up with the band...all i can do now is just watch their evolution through the years...it's just that i love how they've just grown and evolved so much...and that there's a spirit to their need for growth that doesn't seem contrived. all hail U2!!!!!!!! :)

I have become alot more practical and I look at bands like coldplay for their potential. I want to believe in cp in the worst way but they are still too young. As for U2, I am absolutely convinced that given the next several cds, they will not be the same. The enduring quality of U2 is that they are average joes, just down to earth friends, that make extrodinary music. U2 makes more than enough music that they can afford to choose only the best songs, most bands today can't touch their level of committment.

I cannot tell you the number of times I have thought that exact thought.

I feel the exact same way (in in 3-year-old fandom in my 16-year-old life). Try to explain it to non-fans, though... they stare at you like you've gone mad.
