I remember the very night I became a U2 fan. I was staying up late to watch SNL back in 1997, since John Cleese and Michael Palin were making guest appearances. In the interim, I watched a two-hour MuchMusic special of all U2 videos (to celebrate the new Discotheque video, released that day). I was hooked.

*all those nice coincidences*
Thanks for reading it! Elevation was definitely the most impressive thing I had ever seen too... but I'm still kicking myself for saying no to Zoo TV when I was 12. Grrrr!
