Once I just couldn`t listen to this U2 record.But now...

Is there any U2 record you once just couldn`t listen to and now it`s one of your favorite albums???

I just hated Pop after I bought it.

I was hating most of the songs. Especially Miami, Last night on Earth and Mofo.

One year later I just started to listen to it again and what can I tell you, I just love all of the songs now.

I love Miami because of the great lyrics and the humor.
I love the way Bono works up the death of his mother in MOFO.

And Last Night on Earth ROCKS.

looks like someone wants a fight to start. Okay I'll say it, Pop sucks and it sucks just as much now as it ever did. I still hate it

I just started this thread because of this question, but not to begin this boring discussion again.

OMG, I am having a HUGE POP phase right now, when the first few times I played it I was wondering what the hell they were thinking!!! I also have found new love for Miami...I back up my CD just so I can scream it in my car. All together now...

MIAMI!!!

I love it!!!!

Then I proceed on to "If You Wear That Velvet Dress..." I turn it waaaay up so I can hear ever seductive word and the bass rumbles in my car and the other drivers on the road/in the parking lot/in the drive through line look at me funny. A big shout-out to The Playboy Mansion and Last Night on Earth. And, of course, RIP our dear-departed BOOM-CHAs.

Speaking of The Playboy Mansion...didn't Michael Jackson name his last album History? Does anyone else wonder if that's another battle in the Jacko/U2 war (heh...) that's been going on since, like, Zoo TV?

Nice thread :-)

I had a hard time getting into October the first few times I heard it. It just didn't click with me. But I picked it up a few months ago and just fell in love with it. It's still not my favorite album, but it has some absolutely gorgeous songs on there. Gloria, I Threw a Brick, Tomorrow ( ), Rejoice, Scarlet...just really beautiful music.

And Gypsy...maybe he wasn't trying to start a fight. Maybe he just thought it would be fun to find out if others had similar expriences with growing to love an album they once hated. Not every thread expressing love for POP is a challenge to those who don't like it.

*edited cause evidently I did *not* take the grammar-mobile to school today...

Had to think about that one a minute...I would have to say October. When I first bought it I think I only listened to two or three songs, then I sort of moved on to other U2 albums. It wasn't that I DISLIKED October, per se, but I wasn't in any hurry to get into it, I guess.

In the last couple years, I've really grown to love this album. So many great songs there that have been overlooked!

This thread may be joined with unamed_street's 'what a fantatic album-so underrated!' thread and others. We can read over and over how much Wertsie gushes over it, gypsy and J don't, and pinkfloyd uses it as a chance to diss ATYCLB which bring in the ATYCLB lovers, et al, ad infinitum or whatever, this topic has been discussed to death already. OLD Any new ideas anyone? Any new albums anyone feels strongly about? I don't know whether to or or or or

Yeah that's it

We really need one for 'broken record'

I don't think this was intended to be an "I POP" thread. There are only two posts here that even have anything to do with POP.

Lighten up!

My bad...Looks like there are three! (and four if you count this one. )

What is this little war you speak of between Michael Jackson and U2?

I really don't think A Maaaaaan's post was meant start a POP discussion. It's meant to start one about growing to love an album that you once hated (Is it me or did I already say this?). Just because for him that album was POP doesn't mean he wanted to make this thread a celebration JUST of POP. This could be a really nice, positive thread. Can we pleeeaaasse let it be that way?

I second Hallulujah's sentament. Get a life ppl. We are aloowed to talk about Pop.

Well for me its October and Pop. October has grown only a bit but Pop alot. I bet there will be alot of posts about Pop because it is a grower. Most ppl dont listen to pop the first time and love it. You have got to get into the lyrics and the dark mood of the album. My favs on pop are wake up dead man and IGWSHA. I love to listen to the alblum when i'm alone and depressed.


And to the two ppl who are bitching about this being a pop thread you're the ones making it into it.

Good question

For me it was The Unforgettable Fire. Not so much that I couldn't get into it, but I was very wrapped up in Achtung Baby at first, which spread to TJT & Pop.. so I think I bought TUF but never really listened to it. Now, I can't let it go. It's an album I constantly retreat to. perhaps the correct response is War, though, since it's the one I least listen to..

Not sure what that has to do with the topic of this thread, but ok...

Took me a little while to get into Zooropa I suppose. I liked Stay and Lemon a lot at first, but songs like Babyface, Numb, and Dirty Day took a while for me to get into. I still don't really like The Wanderer or Daddy's Gonna Pay..., but I'm kinda coming around to those.

oh come on twin, you know you love the fro

mine would have to beeee Boy. I listened to it ONCE and then never again, for about three months
Lots of times it takes a really kickass live version to get me into an album/band/song/whtaever

oh and I also HATED JT when I first borrowed it from someone, except the first four songs, three of which were on my best of... I bought it for posterity's sake and it collected dust for a very, very, very long time.

Interesting topic for discussion. And I said discussion, not fight over this or that album. Please?

I had no problems with Pop, first song I listened was The Playboy Mansion, not the best in the album IMO, still I liked it. When I heard Gone, SATS and Velvet Dress I fell in love with it.

With that said I must confess that my least favourite, talking about first listening, was Rattle and Hum. I really felt it was kinda messy, I mean, live songs and studio songs altogether...sounded weird for me. But there is a happy end. That was my grower and I love it nowadays.
