"Put loss and love together in one beautiful melody, never give it radio play or live recordings, then you'll have a song that can never get old. Walk On, Love is Blindness, Kite, A Sort of Homecoming, and Every Breaking Wave too. "
I first heard about U2 when I saw the band name spray painted on the side of my Jr. High School gym. Even though I'd never heard a song, they became my favorite band from that day forward.
I began a blog about the spiritual side of U2: isbonoachristian.blogspot.com but I let it die. I now blog at http://freddymartin.net/ where I write more about the spiritual side of U2... and other stuff.
what they said
"The songs of The Unforgettable Fire, one of my favorite records, they have something, there’s an inarticulateness to it that allows the spirit to soar. We are part intellect, part spirit, part physical. And music seems to water the spiritual part of us."
- Adam, 2018
