In honour of the day of the Irish .. may I reccommend digging out some material by a little known Irish band called I think U2 :) and playing loud ...

So far I have revisted what I feel to me is one of the best era's of U2 the early years of Boy, October and War .... the rawest period of the careers with some amazing and under-rated songs ...

I will singgggggg singgg a new songgggggg singgggg sing a newww song ..... how longggggggggg

Great memories of two occurences of this song ...

Greenbelt Christian Festival in the UK in 1991 or 1992 ... after the last band played mainstage myself and two friends started singing this as we left the arena to make way back to the tented village and campsite, along an avenue of trees .. we start and by the end of the avenue we sit and just watch as 10,000 walk past all singing "40" woooowwww

Other time was after the Zooropa gig at Cardiff Arms Park .. again the whole arena walkign out of the place singing Howww longgggggg tooo singe this sooongggg.
