When I was starting life in my early teens there were only two bands that were cool, in my world anyway - Simple Minds from Scotland and U2 from Ireland.
Even before I had heard the song '40' from U2 ... I knew the lyrics ... it's still one of my favourite songs and recordings of all time. You can feel it!
The album I have chosen is however 'The Joshua Tree'
Play from Spotify: U2 – The Joshua Tree
I recently watched the making of another favourite from U2 'Achtung Baby'
and was surprised that U2 seen the Joshua tree as a period they were disappointed with and perhaps it was too much influenced by USA. I love it ... if I have just one complaint it's this ... it doesn't have the song on the YouTube clip above, a song that's just perfect - U2 One.
This was an amazing concert in an amazing location - a perfect memory from a perfect day - oh it takes me back!!
