Have you ever...?

..walked through the streets listening to Walk On...and feel like you're actually one of those people in the video??

...gone through the subway station or airport with headphones, listening to Beautiful Day, feeling like you're Bono? Wanting to jump on the luggage rack?

...stood atop a high building listening to streets, imagining you're in LA...one of the band?

No, but I've been a cartoon Batman while listening to Hold Me, Thrill Me... and imagined I was Bono...

Don't know if this counts, but once i was walking on the street in town and all of a sudden i imagined the riff of "The fly" playing along.

I felt cooler immediately.

I never listen to music while walking. Dont walk and listen to walk on - that dangerous.

I never listened U2 near an airport or sub-station because once i did what bono did and all i got is a broken left leg.

And 3rd one is not applicable to me as i suffer from acrophobia ;-)

Though I listen a lot of music and U2 when in office or when at my residence.

I keep getting arrested for spray painting "Rock & Roll Stops the Traffic" on bridges in my town.

I used to listen to U2 with headphones at night and imagine myself singing the songs to people, as if i wrote them and U2 was my band.

The more of these I drink the more Bono makes sense.. - Bean from the KROQ Breakfast with U2.

Hey, I listened to Zoo Station at Zoo Station ... that's got to count!

This is actually really funny, because today I was crossing the street with my headphones on and The Fly came on ... and I did feel for a moment like I was in the video!

LOL, I remember that now!

I was pushing myself through the glass doors that very same morning, and I had to resist the urge to kiss the glass, hehe

I'm a dork.
