.and ATYCLB didnt even have one!!!!

.....right, well Im talking about a U2 'lurve' song

they hardly do them!



ok maybe some u sussed some, I have no idea, but I can only think of as a real dance-with-your-partner-really-slow-arms-round-each-others-necks-but-not-in-strangling-position are:

All I Want Is You
With Or Without You
If You Wear

and

Love Is Blindness.....

Im sure u know those certain type love songs I mean.........hopefully next album will have trois crooners or even une...................

I agree Maddie. That was one of the first things I noticed about that album.

Sula- In A Little While is a bit fast for a slow dance. lol

You're right maddie. My fiance,(who doesn't really listen to them, only knows the songs everyone else knows)was thinking we should have "One" as our first dance at our wedding. I'm like, "..uh,it's not a love song." and he's like well, pick a love song from them and we'll use it and I'm like, "They don't really have any love songs!!!"

I mean, we could dance to AIWIY but I can't really have Edge's solo blaring away(plus you can't really dance to that part) and I wouldn't want that part cut out. *fume*

Bono has always said he doesn't like to write soppy mushy love songs and they make him gag you know.

Hmm.. funny ideas here:

Wild Honey
Heartland (not really a love song but..)
Grace

I think that I will use 'All I Want Is You' it is really the only song that is appropriate for a first dance at a wedding!!

It might be fairly obscure, but i think Luminous Times (Hold on to Love)is an awesome, damn near traditional, love song that one can slow dance to. Walk to the Water would work if you dont mind the little rapping at the beginning. But, Luminous is probably the most traditional love song U2 has ever written.

U2loopy: Hmm...I always thought "One" was a love song. A very universal one at that. Just think of the lyrics, "We get to carry each other, carry each other"

That sounds like love to me.

Just thought of a few more -- Angel of Harlem, and Stay. Stay probably isn't a love song in the truest sense, I suppose, but..

I agree. I get goosebumps listening to this song every time.

yea yes I can see where some mentioned are love songs but ones like Ground Beneath and Heartland to me are 'making lurve' songies........... yes - thats right, I did just say that ok doing the above 'movie' style.....or the music in a movie to making love scenes.

It just seems WOWY would be the only song that can be played to a floorful of teenagers etc all in a soppy lurve mood.....................

That sounds like love to me.


I guess it's a matter of opinon. I always thought it was about a love breaking down:

"Will it make it easier on you now
if you've got someone to blame"

"One love, we get to share it
It leaves you baby, if you don't care for it"

"Did I dissapoint you? or leave a bad taste in your mouth? You act like you never had love, and you want me to go without"

That's just what I got from it.

"Love is temple, love the higher law
You ask me to enter, but then you make me crawl
And I can't keep holding on to what you got
When all you got is hurt."

Yeah, that sounds like love to me.

Yeah.. I have to agree. That's how I always think of One being.

I always thought of One as to being more of a 'World-Re-Uniting' song..........ya know?

Put racism aside and respect each others individuality etc etc etc
