With or Without You enticed me to find out some more about the band, which then lead to me seeing about 30 seconds of the Pride video, and that's all it took.

Zoo Station.

I knew the big songs (the JT singles, SBS, Pride, etc.) but it wasn't until I bought Achtung Baby and listened to it that I became hooked for all eternity.

i walked into a room where my older bro had just started playing JT and i heard streets (this was probably 1990) for the first time and i remember thinking it sounded like freedom on the horribly rainy day that it was outside. That made me a fan, but seeing htem live for the first time on popmart (i was 14) is the single most life changing music or life the same way. It ruined music for the most part for me, because nothing could compare to what i had just seen. All hail U2!!!

Beautiful Day. I've listened to it more than any song by any artist. I have never been the same.

I grew up with U2 so their music has always marked me, but JT and R&H really really touched me (probably because I was a teenager then).
I cant pick a song, I listen to it all, all the time.

I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For.....this song resonated with me even way back then when I was a young teen just confused about life in general. It changed everything for me, and I've been hooked ever since.

It was all good, and I thought I was a U2 fan until I heard Bad live on "Wide Awake in America". That took everything to a whole new level for me, and I realized that I was listening to magic. Imagine how I felt when the followup to that was The Joshua Tree. 20+ years later, it just gets better and better.

I remember it so clearly, which is funny because my memory of my childhood is usually fairly blurry. I was in 7th grade, and watched an episode of 21 jump street, and at the close of the program they featured 'I still haven't found what I'm looking for' and I was so moved by the power of the song... it made me feel and imagine... my sister was in college at the time and had a big crate full of cassette tapes, I dug through it that night in search of the Joshua Tree album, certain I had seen it before, and then after I found it I literally wore the tape out.

I also "grew up hearing U2" at my house, but I went from a casual fan to a nutcase the first time I heard Until the End of the World, then I heard the whole Achtung Baby album and I've been immersed ever since.
