I'm just starting WOWY now.

I don't care how overplayed it is. It never gets old. I love the intro.

Okay, everybody's sharing their U2 stories.

The first time I remember hearing U2 was the One video with the buffalos, which even at that young age, I recognized as being an unusual video. But though I remembered the video for years to come, the song had no impact on me, and it wasn't until after I got into U2 and read about that version of the video that I made the connection.

Anyway, I first started paying attention to U2 when the Numb video came out. It got a lot of play, and the video was so whatthefuck. I remember Lemon too. And my brother had Zooropa on cassette, although I don't recall ever listening to it. Then there was HMTMKMKM which I thought was awesome.

Fastforward to 2004. In the religious fervor of my teen years, I managed to miss out on ATYCLB completely, and have no memory of hearing/seeing the videos for Beautiful Day and Elevation, although they must've got a lot of airplay. By 2004 I'd left most of my religious feelings behind, but when the iPod ad came out, I started getting into Vertigo, and when I finally heard the full version, 'your love is teaching me how to kneel' caught my attention, so I started reading up on the band, and I got really interested in the band's religious background. I liked that they could be religious in their personal lives (and sometimes in their music) but still be rockstars who smoke, drank, swore, and were sexual. It was the kind of thing I wanted to believe it was okay to do.

Then I started digging into their back catalogue, racking up most of the popular songs, and then buying the albums and fully immersing myself in the online fan community.

WOWY.

Still like the studio version. Needs Shine Like Stars and a solo, though.

The Edge saying it doesn't need a solo is just lying to cover up a mistake.

I pronounce it as Ish-if-will-if. I like Ashley's Shellfish, though.

And yeah, Ian's call on Adam being a random drunk is spot on.

I've always pronounced it wow-i, like wow-eye. Wow-eye and eye-why (AIWIY) rhyme for me.

I tried to do my best to do it with Springsteen, though I reuined that by hearing Magi (this most recent album) first, followed by Born To Run (his third album). Then I heard The Wild, The Innocent, and the E Street Shuffle (his second album) THEN Asbury Park (his first album) but asfter that i pretty much heard it all in order, though I got a little lazy with his most recent albums...pretty mcuh the 70s and 80s I listened to in order
