Beautiful Day/One was what prompted me to investigate U2 further, but Until The End Of The World was what really got me hooked.

Where the streets have no name was the first U2 song i loved but it was Beautiful day that turned me into the obsessed freak that i am today. i have listened to that song more than any other and it still sounds unbelievably fresh.....

Tough decision... I remember really enjoying a lot of JT stuff I heard on the radio (mainly Streets, also WOWY and ISHFWILF) but the Discotheque video really raised an eyebrow and prompted me to investigate further. When I heard more of the back catalog, I was hooked - ESPECIALLY after listening to the Achtung Baby and Zooropa albums. I remember really being blown away by Zoo Station and UTEOTW the first time I heard them...

So, yeah, lots of songs. LOL. I'm sort of a "new" U2 fan (in the respect I got hooked during the Pop era) but it's great to see so many people mention Beautiful Day.

I grew up on U2 but I guess I'd have to pick Where the Streets Have No Name although the next two songs of JT did their part

I was cleaning my room while listening to a "Billboard's Top Hits: 1987", in 1994, when I heard "With or Without You". I became a hardcore fan three years later when I listened to "Discotheque" 5 times in a row.

I first discovered U2 because of their hit song "With or Without You" in 1987. Also, I fell in love with the song "I Still Haven't Found What I've Been Looking For" from the same album.

Became a U2 die-hard fan for life when I attended my very first rock concert ever on October 3, 1987 at an outdoor venue at the CNE Stadium in Toronto, Canada. Thank God it was the supergroup U2 that became my first concert ever in life. I've become a hardcore concert junkie ever since that first U2 concert, but no other rock group has matched that first time concert experience...

U2 sold me for life because of that phenomenal live concert. It was when I first noticed the electricity of the crowd when the opening notes to "Where the Streets Have No Name" started playing. The crowd just exploded into total mayhem and ecstasy at the same time.

It is this very song WTSHNN that does it for me at all the U2 live concerts because of this joyous, nostalgic feeling it brings me. That tune is just magical for me and that's all I have say concerning how I feel about U2.
