I'm currently hearin: *Wire*- U2

OK, so I'm new, and I posted this comment a few days ago in response to someone else's entry. I figured, however, that it would more likely be read if I actually posted it as an entry. So sorry for the redundancy, but here it is in case you're interested...

"Hey everyone! I've been following along with this community for a WHILE now, so I figured, while we're talking 16 year olds, it would be a good idea for me to post. So yes, I'm another 16 year old fan. I got my first taste of U2 in the womb. No joke. I was due on November 7, 1987. My parents had tickets for JTree on September 12th. By September 15th, my mom's water broke, and I was born verrry premature on 9/17/87. So I guess I've always been a fan. My real love (some call it an obsession...ha), however, really began during the summer of 2002 before my sophomore year in high school. I don't know if I could pick a favorite album at this point, but I am definitely attached to my Best of 1980-1990. Notwithstanding this attachment, I just can't compare the amazing and unique aspects of all the different albums. Eh, maybe I'll be able to pick when I'm older...: ) Anyhoo, U2's music fulfills a place in my heart that no other music can fill. It is beautiful, uplifting, and inspiring. Thank God for U2.

Thanks for listening!

PS: I got a cherry red electric guitar for Christmas and named it the Edge. : )"

Thanks! It's a cherry red Ibanez...a copy of a Gibson SG, which, according to my dad, is what Pete Townsend from The Who played. It's a pretty hot starter guitar...now if only I could play it...: )

Yeah! I'm starting lessons soon, and I just can't wait to become a *good* guitarist. I'm a vocalist (mostly musical theatre, actually), and I've had music theory classes, so I have an understanding of reading music, chords, key signatures, rhythm, etc. But it's still going to take forever!!

I love your icon...

one of my favorite U2 albums is "Pop" (although it doesn't seem to be high on many others' lists) and I think my favorite song from it is "Wake Up Dead Man"... so powerful

Welcome to the community and good luck with the guitar...

Thanks a lot. Pop is actually one album that I really haven't gotten too into yet. As I said, I've only been obsessing for about a year and a half, so I haven't experienced EVERYTHING. I do, however, LOVE "Staring at the Sun," "If You Wear That Velvet Dress," and "Please." Great songs. Thanks again! : )

see i love POP, and no it's not my favorite album, but it has it's own charm, you just have to get past the technoish stuff and really listen to what bono's saying THAT'S what makes it a good album...i honestly like POP more than zooropa
