MUN, I'd like to propose that U2's Sunday Bloody Sunday might be actually more representative, given it's political bent.


I disagree.

Sunday Bloody Sunday went a long way towards gaining them international,recognition - not least of all because for many years (possibly even still) Bono prefaced the song with the statement "this is not a rebel song" thus automatically positioning it as a rebel song. In this way is appealed to so many Irish who grew up in the shadows of the political unrest.

But personally I don't think that is what U2 as a band is about. I often feel that much of their music is about trying to find a place, define their identity, reach out to the less vocal, more oppressed. Somehow I feel "With or Without you" encompasses that more.

But the lovely thing about this "game" is that neither of us are wrong smile


You have brains in your head
You have feet in your shoes
You can steer yourself any direction you choose.
You're on your own and you know what you know
And YOU are the one who'll decide where you go
