A week or so ago, I was driving to work and I saw a black van in the lane next to me with a "Achtung Baby" sticker on their back window.

I also caught the end of I Love the 80's/87 last night. Just came in from work and was thinking I haven't seen U2 all week, (except on inteference)and the first thing I see was Bono walking towards me very quickly, good timing. roommate thought it a bit erieeee... I just think they know when we need them.

Today I was at the Burger King drive-thru, and after I got my food, I said "Have a nice day" to the guy working, and seriously the second after he said "You too," "One" came on the radio

I was with my girlfriend today and were just strolling hand and hand at an outdoor shopping mall and were just talking about us, like our relationship and stuff were being silly and stuff you know "That silly stuff you do when you're in love" and we walk into a store hand ( I think it was a 99 cent store ) and they had their sound system blaring and the song playing as we walked in was "With or Without You" so it really added to the already cheesy "love" moment we had going on.

On the radio, around St. Patrick's day someone called and asked for an Irish FOLK song..... so....they played "Two Hearts Beat as One".

"Two heart" a folk song? really?

Whenever my friends and I go out, a U2 song will almost always be played within the first 20 minutes we're there. They think I call ahead or something.

Also, one time I was driving to work and started singing HMTMKMKM to myself. I turned on the radio and found that not only was the song on the radio, but it was at the exact same part that I stopped singing.

Nobody ever believes me when I tell that story but it's the truth.

I had the greatest U2 moment the other day.....I am in Africa right now, I've been taking a photojournalism course through the study abroad program at my school and I am here for one more week...anyway...we had gone on a trip outside the city we are staying in and on the way back we were driving really fast across the countryside in a big vehicle with all the windows down...I picked up my cd player not knowing what cd was in there, pressed play and heard streets come blaring through the was just PERFECT!! I went on to listen to the rest of the Joshua Tree cd and was amazed to see how relevant it became once again ( It had been a long time since I had listened to it). The scenary and the moment just fit perfectly to the songs on that cd!!! It brought a smile to my face and made me feel great after a long and stressful trip!

I randomly stopped my U2 CD while driving home tonight and heard...a U2 song.

They played ALL of Rattle and Hum at the bar I went to Saturday night.

I flipped the TV to one of the digital music channels on my cable system about half an hour ago and the intro to "Where The Streets Have No Name" was playing.

I was taking a dump once and it formed like the "O" from the word "POP". A U2 moment for me!

I was walking by the river in Paris last summer, and I was almost positive that i heard part of Shadows and Tall Trees coming from one of the house boats. of course I made my parents stop and listen. I'm still not sure if it was...

I attended a Major League baseball game last night and they played Elevation at least 3 times over the sound system.
