I haven't listened to U2 in a while

but today's the day where I'm probably going to listen to them all day.

Thank you amazing MLK -> Streets transition.

Then today will be a good day.

Make sure you listen to A Sort of Homecoming at some point. Really listen to that shit.

It's fucking sublime. I can't even come close to describing what that song means to me.

A Sort of Homecoming is a mainstay on my ever-evolving list of top 5 U2 songs.

I'm not to the point yet where I want to crank up U2 again. But soon, I'm sure.

I'm in a mostly non-U2 zone lately, but that never lasts for very long.

It's been about 6 months to a year for me, pretty crazy territory.

I still hear plenty of U2 because I usually listen to iTunes on shuffle, and U2 makes up a pretty high percentage of my music.

But I haven't made much of an extra effort to listen to them for a year or so.

Too much other awesome music going on right now!

I have gone for sometime also when I haven't listened, but it never lasts for long. But when I do listen again it's totally amazing and awe inspiring! Enjoy your day listening to them again.

Nice to know that there are others out there who are taking a break from them as well.

I'm enjoying discovering/ obsessing over other bands who are up and coming right now. But it is hard to get away for long with the new DVD and U2 3D coming out...

I haven't listened to U2 in awhile.

Although, that will change as of Tuesday. It's PopMart ... all over again.

I'd barely touched U2 for months upon months, and then that custom Best Of 1980-90 thread inspired me to make a little mix on iTunes. Holy fucking shit, A Sort Of Homecoming and Heartland are incredible. I'd forgotten how good this band sometimes could be. Heartland still leaves me speechless. I wish I could find the epic Heartland appreciation thread.

The two I linked to in the second post, yes. Those were good times. Cheers.

Exactly right there, Axver. You know, you don't have to sell me on land ... I love that song too.

And, I remember that U2 Name Game too.

BTW ... what happened to Red Rocks Edge ?? (It's been quite some time since Vertigo ended in NZ)

Please don't tell me it will never ever surface under your name again. That would be disappointing.

I have been just the opposite...all i listen to usally, is U2! When I am not listening to U2........Praise&Worship!! I don't seem to have much of an appetite for new music of today. or other bands. Though I have listened to other bands music in the past, right now I just care for U2 music! U2 are the Best!!

I'm not listening to them, too, since a long time by now, probably more than a year. I'm getting into other music, but I know the day will come that my cd player will play U2 on heavy rotation!
Just need that little "snap"!

I remember a few years ago all I would listen to was U2 and it's a little unsettling to think about now. Sure they're my favorite band, but there's so much more out there to listen to, you know?
