Where the Streets Have No Name/no commercial :)

"But if a show is a little off, and there's a hole, that's the one song we can guarantee that God will walk through the room as soon as we play it. So the idea that when we played it, people would go, `That's the such-and-such commercial,' we couldn't live with it."

~Bono on why U2 refused £12.5 million to allow "Where the Streets have No Name" for a commercial

That's what a song written in ancient Africa (Ethiopia) will do - that continent is full of sacred places.

Remember, that's the first place on earth that God put men and women, so that continent MUST BE VERY SPECIAL TO GOD.

Bono knows that - why do you think he advocates for Africa so much?
