My U2-love was really gradual. I found Zooropa at a yard sale for a buck when I was 12 or so, and liked it fairly well. (cue organ music) ...Little did Emily know that on that fateful day, the seeds of an obsession that would lead her to Pleba were sown!... Anyway, a few years later I got Achtung and JT and fell in love with them, and the rest is history!

For me, it was this particular and specific moment:



Yup, it was With or Without You. It was on Rattle and Hum because I didn't have the CD and my mom had the video (which is now mine). I saw Bono and that was it. I bought the Best Of Cd and the rest is history.

This is another "when Mtv played videos" antedote.

I was 9 years old and saw the video for WOWY one day. I didn't have any lustful feelings back then, but I did fall in love with the song. I remember loving all the JT stuff and thought that guy with the short brown ponytail was kindda cute....lol

The real obsession, however, came in 1992 when ZOO TV hit. I went into a U2 buying frenzy, hung up posters, etc., and "ditched" poor ol' Bono for sweet, Babyface Mullen. (That, my friends, is when those lustful feelings began to come out!!)

My U2 LIKE started in high school (in 1981), when a college radio station was playing Out of Control off of Boy. I thought wow, what a cool song, and I got the album. (Yes, it was really a vinyl album lol). I got all of the records as they came out, and saw them play a couple of times. But I didn't really flip for U2 until Live Aid, and then the rest, as they say, is history.

I've been a fan longer than some of you guys have been alive!

I have also been a U2 fan since 1981. I always thought they were cute, especially Bono. One of the first things I noticed about him besides his good looks was that I was surprised he didn't have much of an Irish accent, I mean not like you hear on TV. Even though I liked them and thought Bono was very good looking, he didn't become SEXY to me until Live Aid, oh he looked SO HOT in that outfit, and the way he could bend and move in those tight black pants, his gestures and mannerisms, the way he ran his hands back through his hair, everything about him turned me on! He still does!

Hell yes, Gypsy... and the way he threw himself off that giant stage so he could go dance with that girl? He was just so wrapped up in the music and what they were trying to do... I bet the guards were like... crap man! Don't jump off the 20 foot stage!

U2, comes in as a supporting act smack in the middle of the show... and runs away with the whole damn thing!



Ahhhhhhhh... LiveAid!

**crzy goes off to listen to her LiveAid boot**

*Disco also SNNNNIIIIFFFFFFFS all over Boner's leather duds like a rock-n-roll dawgie* WOOF.

ya know, between all this on-line leather and the fact that our office VP prefers to wear leather pants as well, it's a wonder I can keep my mind on *anything else* around here!!! Aaaaaahhhhh!!!

*ponders*

Um...well, perhaps it doesn't help that I'm on Pleba all the live long day as it is...

Setting aside all potential musical or artistic ability, if my dad went strollin around with three buddies in leather...they'd be the laughing stock of the country! HOW do Bono and the boys do it?!
