1106 Hip Pocket Rd

I was listening to the radio the other day and they played "Pride". For some reason whenever a U2 song is played on the radio, or any song for that matter, it sounds much sweeter than on the album. Maybe it has to do with the fact that everyone else is hearing at the same time as you are.

What U2 song sounds sweeter on the radio and makes you tingle?

I get so excited whenever I hear a U2 song on the radio. It doesn't matter which one. I just turn it up and sing along at the top of my voice. Some how, it does feel more special on the radio, like someone is playing it just for you.

Oh yeah, I go nuts when I'm lucky enough to hear them on the radio. (Even Numb, which is STILL played 1000 times per day on a station here )

ooh btw i realized i never answered the question. for me, it's i will follow. it came on the classic rock station a few years back, and it was wonderful. i had the windows rolled down, it was 11 pm at night or so, so traffic was light. it was nice to be able to just drive down the street and feel the wind blowing and stuff, it just seemed to add a whole extra dimension to the song, and i only really felt that that one time i heard it on the radio.

One thing that can make hearing U2 on the radio even more special is when the DJ says something about how great the band is before or after the song. The one radio station in my town that does play a fair amount of U2 tends to do this, and I don't notice them doing that for other artists!

So does Streets and Pride.

I like hearing Streets on the radio.
Also think Hip Pocket Road would make for a great album
title.

I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For always seems to sound better in the car. Maybe because it tends to come on when I'm with the whole family and all of us sing along - we're terrible singers but it's cool when your family appreciates your fanaticism!

I'll take any U2 song I can get, but for me the best one to hear over the airwaves is "New Year's Day"... I'm sure that's because the very first time I heard U2 or any of their music was in '83 when I first heard NYD on my favorite local station. Hearing it now always takes me back to that introduction.
