What is your official U2 Summer Song?

I know it's a little early (like a whole season early!), but this unseasonable 90 degree weather in Iowa has put me into a summery mood.

Red Hill Mining Town is my official U2 Summer Song. My dad and I used to go out in the backyard to play catch every night during the summer. We had speakers outside, so he'd throw in The Joshua Tree. I used to *hate* Red Hill Mining Town, but for some reason or other, it has always been the song that brings back the most vivid memories of playing catch with my dad. Needless to say, I love the song now.

For years it was Streets, and that's still good but now and forever I got to go with Beautiful Day. It replaces my old official Summer Song which was Mr. Blue Sky by ELO, which is now second. If you ever heard it there are similarities.

The entire Achtung album. Brings back memories of the summer of '92.

Well, you'll just have to hear it then, won't you?

Yep, that would be a cool summer song!

Most of ATYCLB actually. I really got into that album when I was in Portugal last year, and a lot of the songs, especially "Kite," "In A Little While," "Wild Honey," and "WILATW" remind me of sitting by the pool in the sun

I was actually just thinking about this other day 'cos we're getting record high temps in Indiana, too!

I'd have to say these are my picks for U2 summer songs:

Big Girls are Best
Wild Honey
Sweetest Thing
Hawkmoon 269
Summer Rain (of course)
Elevation (Influx Mix)

It'd be interesting to make a cd mix of all summer songs by U2.
