I listened to it today! 🙂 (Although I’m not sure that qualifies as something special, since I have listened to AB regularly every year for the past 30 years.)

 

:AB:

 

A very special album...

This was a very nice way to mark the day.  The grunge plastic pants comment and many others were quite funny.  I heard things I did not know.  Many thanks for posting.  Happy 30th, Achtung Baby.

That show was so good! I’m not sure I’ve ever heard the stuff about “baby” before. Now I want to get out the lyrics and count how many times he said it.

Baby, baby, baby, light my way. I know the answer but won’t give it away till you have tallied them up.

Would have been nice if the U2 store had managed to ship and ensure the delivery of the vinyl on the day of release.

All my other recent pre-ordered vinyls have been shipped and delivered on release day - often from much smaller bands, but sadly I am not surprised the U2 store failed (yet again)

It's alright, it's alright, it's alright!    

I really liked how they ended with Bono saying what he did about Edge and Love Is Blindness.

I remember the line "Edge throws some more babies away" from a magazine article about this (I think they started out with more?!), but I'm not sure where I read it...
