"Best... Song... Ever... It doesn't have a hook OR a chorus!"
U2 fan since age 11. Saw my first show at age 14 (3/2/85 - Unforgettable Fire Tour). Have attended 35 shows so far (as well as seeing Bono and Edge at President Clinton's 65th birthday benefit concert) including two in Australia, two in Las Vegas and one in Honolulu. Most recent show (5/19/15) was the best on the Innocence Tour so far, and MANY others have been spectacular. Looking forward to more shows this tour. The dream is to see them in South America.
"It can be frustrating at times when they sometimes take a song and work it into the ground, then work it back to life again. That's what happened with Stand Up Comedy. I was thinking the other day that Edge has probably heard the song more times than even the most dedicated U2 fan ever will."

The cover art for No Line on the Horizon is a photograph of Lake Constance, taken by Japanese photographer Hiroshi Sugimoto; titled Boden Sea, it is one of 200 pictures in his Seascapes collection. The image was the inspiration for Bono's lyrics on the track "No Line on the Horizon".
