Episode #12 - How U2 keeps us sane in times of insanity
While a third of the world is in lockdown we get together remotely with friend of the show Jaime from Florida. We talk about the things that keep us sane in insane times: the U2 Experience film and how this film ranks against other U2 live releases, what are highlights from these olders films worth watching again? We also talk about U2start's Original on Bad, for which Remy listened to more than 500 versions of Bad. Why would anyone ever do that?

"'Pride' is the best song we've ever written. We've done very few songs, normally we just make music. 'I Will Follow' was a song, but then the next one wasn't until 'Sunday Bloody Sunday'. It's very different from the rest of the album though - there's nothing on there as straight as this."
- Bono, November 1984

While the band and crew were working on the Joshua Tree album's mixing, Lillywhite's wife, singer Kirsty MacColl, volunteered to set the running order for the album. The band told her to put "Where the Streets Have No Name" first and "Mothers of the Disappeared" last, with the rest sequenced according to her preference.
