It was 20 Years ago today...

...that New Years Day was released. This is one of my favorite U2 songs.

Ah, yes....I couldn't forget to put the flaming piano keys in those pictures...I think of that scene and Bono's lusciously golden mullet whenever I think of the NYD video.

yes Iris, that was nice effect. I also like the blood-redish tint of the sky against the stark white snow.


was that "un-PLEBA" enough?

Yes! The piano is the centerpiece of the song. That video effect was ahead of its time, considering it was 1983.

Whee, yes!

I like the piano in that song.

And I always wonder where they're at in that video-looks like a really pretty area with all the snow and all that.

So it's been 20 years, eh?

*Toasts 20 year anniversary of song*

My Best of 1980-1990 video says that the video was shot in Sweden, in Dec. '82.

I listened to the song today....I know *dork*

I also listened to the song today, so you aren't the only dork! It's definitely in my personal Top 10 list of U2 songs.

I never knew they actually released the single on Jan. 1! Cool!

You can hear the Oct./NYD on a lot of bootlegs.
