No!! So do I!!! My friends thought that I'm crazy because of that.

There was a time that I heard the first second of Streets and immediately recognized it.

I do that too And I also can spot the word "U2" from about 50 metres, even in small print, even though I am blind as a bat. I often scan whole magazines for "U2" and can find it with ease, maybe that is why they are so great, they have an easy name to find

U2? Come on, I thought it was only me...

Guess what? We might have developted something like a special U2 dish anthena, very powerful, you know, we can capture their songs if only a single not is played anywhere or only a glance of their name is spotted in the distance. Talking about evolution, LOL

i agree with all of that.

a few weeks ago in the car my friend was flipping channels and i was like, "STOP! go back... more.... one more.... ok, just another station.... yea! there!" it was Desire.

i hear "U2" more than i actually read it. i mean, "you too" and "you two" are pretty common phrases.
everyone:"Have a nice day!"
me:"You too! *fit of giggles*"

yea, i'm just insane.

ahaha, we are both insane... I have an attack of giggles at the same moments (and quite often otherwise infact.)

Yes. It happens on regular U2 songs, and it happened on covers-Everlasting love and Unchained melody.
I had no idea it was U2 till i heard Bono. As soon as he started singing i was like "woooh, this is U2!"

"That's why i still love playing live in a rock'n'roll band. There's just this feeling of this thing could just about do anything..." - Edge

"Something inside said this could be everything in your life." - Bono

"U2 as a band does things no one else can do. I think that is a very powerful thing." - Larry

"Adam believed in the band before anyone did." - Bono

um mine's worse
it happens with any song, not just U2 and I've scared more than a few people with my ability
i can also pick up song lyrics usually in one or two listens..hmm, maybe its just part of my obsession i dunno

btw, you'd be jealous..I have the coolest glittery Cowgirl shirt.. it's one of my faves
people dont understand tho. cowgirls arent cool in NJ

Julie and Bebe, I think that's one of the standard symptoms of U2OD (U2 obsession disorder..or just U2 overdose )

------------------
but for the grace of love I'd will the meaning of heaven from above...
