Hello Hello!!


August 20th, 2004

all the promises we break from the cradle to the grave... @ 06:56 pm

_serendipity:
I decided today to put on October because I wore the tshirt yesterday, so it was on my mind.
After that, I was like...hmmm... I haven't listened to War in a while...which turned into me listening to all of my U2 cds in chronological order...and I have all their cds, and some singles...
I will admit - I have skipped some of them. I skipped the Wide Awake in America EP and I skipped The Unforgettable Fire because I just wasn't really in the mood for it. And of course, since I started with their second album - I skipped Boy.

It's been a good time.
Every now and then - a song comes on and my heart skips a beat - because some of these songs I haven't heard in a long time...
Like when "Hawkmoon 269" came on...my oh my... I love that song so much.


So I was thinking...
I wonder if the friendly people over in the U2 community have some songs like that -- the one when you're listening to your cd while sewing (like I was), or paying bills or cooking or whatever -- and it stops you for a second...
Anyone care to share?

"Twilight," "Grace," "October," "Wake Up Dead Man," "One Tree Hill."

Those are the ones I can think of at the moment.

Bad, One, Van Dieman's Land, Seconds, and Miss Sarajevo...I love all of them! And then when you're listening to the CDs like that, you hear the songs that never really stuck out to you until that particular listen. And then they become your favorites...oh I love it when that happens :-)

I have several, but the one that springs to mind is "Bad." I can zone out completely for the rest of the song, but the first 3-5 seconds always catch my attention.

Heh.....I was in my room today when my mom walked in and tried to talk to me about dinner or something. There were long pauses on my end of it- I was trying to listen to "Bad"! Of course, on her way out, she did say "Nice music." :D WOWY also usually makes me stop what I'm doing....just to listen.

And also, ROCK ON for being a fellow sewing U2 fan!

"Stay", "With or Without You", and "The Unforgettable Fire" always make my heart leap up into my throat and cheesy i know, i get choked up. those songs remind me of special or hard times, and they will always be close to my heart.
