Happy 13th, Pop!

A little late, but it's been 13 years since Pop was released on March 3, 1997.

Happy birthday!

Must admit, the day of your birth was a bit of a disappointment Mr. Pop, but I grew to love you more as you grew up each year!

Happy birthday, you fully deserve your place in the U2 body of work.

Let me tell you about my 1997. and hearing Discotheque, then getting PoP at Virgin Megastores before it went bust. and getting the singles on cassettes still, for my walkman, LOL!
But the best buzz was Tues, 26th Aug and U2 bringing PoP to here. My gawd, that was one HELL of a night!

Loved and still love the album.

not only is "POP" one of my favorite albums of all time, but it went a long way in shaping my overall taste in music.

@mad1: yes, what a night at botanic gardens, with the plane crossing the center of the spotlights/lightdome during BTBS. i was on a oneweek holiday trip through irland.
great show, maybe the loudest of my life... next day i was dizzydeaf with some kind of a tinnitus syndrome. there was party everywhere on our way from the belfast city center to botanic garden. all the people were very relaxed with much anticipation.

Plane flying during BTBS? gosh, I think I can remember that, obviously it was unplanned, but that woulda been round or after 10pm?



Oh god yes, the number of people out with me lined across the road and the bridge was amazing. and the residents living just where their homes overlooked the stadium gettin a free concert, LOL!

WOW 13 years already? To this day, I still love Discotheque and loved it the day it was leaked online! I really hate how U2 remixed the POP songs for the Best of 1990-2000 because the originals are WAY better.

What about the plan? What about Larry's back? I love Pop tales (stories from that era).

Hmm... can't say I've listened to the actual POP album in awhile. Think I may just get started on that right now (usually I have the single versions of IGWSHA, LNOE and Please replacing their album counterparts).

Good album Wish I was a fan back when it came out...







Or not... Was it a hard time for U2 fans in '97? Would have been really cool to see POPmart, though
