30 Years Ago Today.....


Recommended Posts

30 years ago today was a pivotal day in my U2 fandom. I worked in a movie theater at the time and I bought the cd for Rattle and Hum so we could play it in the lobby in anticipation and to promote the movie that would be coming out that next month. Little did I know at the time that that album would help take my love of U2 to a new level. I would always (and still do) turn it up a bit louder for this song:

What’s your favorite song from this album?

My favourite song on that album is the wonderful Heartland.

 

That’s my 2nd favorite on the album.

I guess I'll be the romantic and nominate "All I Want Is You" - I did name it as one of my favorite songs in my profile, so I guess I'm obliged to bring it up here. ;)

...but I like to rock too! B)

 

It was this song and their cover of "Night and Day" a couple of years later (with its drum sound recycled from "Boomerang I"/"Boomerang II" from the UF days) that gave the slightest hint (IMHO) that they were capable of making songs like those that eventually ended up on AB. Otherwise, there were none.

I love Hawkmoon 269 and Heartland too, but those have been quoted above. I'm a little surprised that "Desire" hasn't been mentioned yet - that song is not exactly chopped liver. :lol:

I was hoping for a remastered R&H album and movie with unseen footage plus seen footage(youtube). God, I was just 16 when this album came out. Hawkmoon and God Part II are My Favourites.
