My U2 prom experience

Last weekend at our 'prom' (technically the after-party for whats formally called our 'junior-senior banquet') I had a U2 experience. lol. I'll explain: first the DJ played 'Vertigo', where most guys looked kind of dumb doing something weird..anyway I danced with this other girl who loves U2 and it was pretty cool. but the HIGHLIGHT was when i requested 'with or without you' with the hope of dancing with this one girl who ive been through lots of stuff with (i asked her to this prom, she said yes, then later rescinded..heh) and i did end up dancing with her, because we are great friends. It was so great, I could have stayed in that moment forever!...but now that song has a whole different meaning in my mind to me...ill never forget it!

just thought i'd share my story, has anyone else had stuff like this happen?

(i'd put it in zoo confessionals, but it has to do with U2, didnt want to get yelled at)

My prom was pretty crap--there was plenty of line-dancing of which I wanted nothing to do with.

I never went to any proms. I could've gone in my Junior and Senior years(02 and 03), but I didn't.

Going to a prom costs a lot of money(tux+dinner+extra) and can be a hassle, and I would only go if I had a girlfriend - I mean a real girlfriend - to go with. I didn't have one at the time. I still don't.

Even if I did have one - if she was the right person, I wouldn't need to go to a prom to have a special dance with her. If I had a girlfriend and she was the right one, I could dance with her in my living room or in a hole in the ground and it would be a special dance because it would be with her. I don't need a prom(and all that goes with it) - what essentially amounts to a big popularity contest - to make it special.

What can I say, I'm an introvert and would take 'order a pizza and rent a movie' over 'go out' ten out of ten times.

That almost uncannily resembles me.

i wasn't a U2 fan when my prom happened. didn't own any of their CD's. i can't imagine not owning any U2 CD's now. Strange.
Although 6 months after the prom i got the 2 Best Of's for christmas and the rest is history!

We don't have "prom" in Canada. At least we didn't at my high school. Not sure if others in Canada have it.

We had a grad party, but it wasn't what you would consider a prom.

I can't remember if U2 was played or not. We went on a cruise around Vancouver, and there was a band and a DJ. It was a pretty good time.

You could buy a Delorean and a Flux Capacitor and take U2 back with you to your prom.

Well, I'm a sophomore so I haven't been to prom yet, but they played a grand total of two slow songs at homecoming this year. Very disappointing. I mean..."Cotton Eyed Joe" beat out a slow song. I would have gone up to request a U2 song, but I wanted to keep my hearing capabilities by not getting closer to the speakers.
