My Top 10 Favorite U2 Songs

Everybody on social media is freaking out about having the new U2 album—and I’ll use their word for it—forced upon them by Apple. Personally, I don’t think it’s ever a bad thing when one of the biggest bands in the world decides to give you their new album for free.

It was apparently a smart move by U2 because since the Songs of Innocence album appeared in everyone’s iTunes, their back catalog started to sell like crazy. The Joshua Tree, War, Achtung Baby, and The Unforgettable Fire saw huge spikes in sales. When you start looking at the albums that shaped U2’s career, you begin to realize that there were some amazing songs that you probably paid for at some point in your life. Here are my top ten favorite U2 songs.

10. “UNTIL THE END OF THE WORLD”

9. “TWO HEARTS BEAT AS ONE”

8. “A SORT OF HOMECOMING”

7. “SUNDAY BLOODY SUNDAY”

6. “NEW YEAR’S DAY”

5. “WITH OR WITHOUT YOU”

4. “BULLET THE BLUE SKY”

3. “WHERE THE STREETS HAVE NO NAME”

2. “BAD”

1. “PRIDE”

 

“Pride” has to be my all-time favorite because it is such a thoughtful song with an important message. It also came out when I was in my early teens and opened my eyes to so many social issues that I hadn’t seen in my life. It also was the song that got me hooked on U2.

Fresh X: Stream Alt-J's "This Is All Yours" Corey O'Brien |

Fresh X: Stream Alt-J's

Once again the future does one thing really good: it makes it so we don't have to wait for the future to hear new music. Though Alt-J's new album isn't due out until next week, the future has made it possible for you to hear it now.

The downside is the stream is on Spotify, so by the time you actually hear any of the album it may actually be next Tuesday and you can just buy it. Spotify works okay on my phone, but I only open it on my desktop when I feel like crashing my computer.

If you manage to hear it, let us know how it is.

Alt-J will be performing at The Complex on October 27th. Get your tickets for that show here.

Fresh X: New U2 Album, FREE!

Not only are we getting new, bigger, slimmer iPhones this month, but we are getting the new U2 album today and it's free. If you are already an iTunes subscriber just go into the iTunes store, click on "purchased' link on the right hand side and download it as you have already purchased it for $0.00 whether you like it or not. If you aren't an iTunes subscriber you have 5 weeks to sign up and get it for free.

The band announced the offering after performing at the Apple announcement today, which can as a surprise because the band had said the album would be pushed to 2015. Lies! Then again, the band also said they wouldn't be at the event just two days ago.

You can watch the keynote and more about the event here.
