There aren't many U2 tracks that reference a specific date, are there? Breathe, Pride. Can't think of anything else off the top of my head. I guess it's not a super common lyrical feature in general.

I suppose you could say Out of Control refers indirectly to a specific date, 10 May 1978.

Thing is, Bono's anecdote about writing it on his eighteenth birthday is... taking liberties. "Monday morning, eighteen years of dawning" might be a nice opening lyric but 10 May 1978 was a Wednesday.
