U2 fan since 1998 when my brother bought the "Best of 1980-1990". When I listened to "New Year's Day" for the first time, I immediately fell in love with the band. Never heard a song like this before and it changed my life :-)
"I love being there, I love America, I love the feeling of the wide open spaces, I love the deserts, I love the mountain ranges, I even love the cities. So having fallen in love with America over the years that we've been there on tour, I then had to 'deal with' America and the way it was affecting me, because America's having such an effect on the world at the moment. On this record I had to deal with it on a political level for the first time, if in a subtle way."

The song 'Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses' is mostly about sexual jealousy, many people believe it's much more than just a love song.
