I have followed U2 since they released the Boy album, over the years I have loved the new albums and returned to the old ones to rediscover those half forgotten gems, all my important memories seem to be related to one U2 song or another and long may it continue.
"A few days after the album [Songs of Innocence] was finished, I thought Iris shouldn't be part of the album. Even though the song is a beautiful tune and everything, I just thought it was going a bit far and it's not very punk rock, singing about your mother."
did you know
The song 'When Love Comes To Town' is about the redemptive power of love, with a biblical theme.
