New Year’s Day/ U2

 

new-year-4

Hard to believe it has been thirty-three years since Bono & company penned this song for their 1983 album ‘War’.  Although it was originally written for Lech Walesa and the Polish Solidarity movement, I find a lot of relevance in this song as applied to the issues of today.

I have always loved U2.  Once upon a time several years ago I was lucky enough to meet Bono and The Edge at a loading dock in Chicago. They were both very kind and considerate gentlemen, worthy of their super-power status!

In honor of U2, the New Year and my feelings about the current state of the world, I put together this (bittersweet —  but mostly optimistic) video.

Hope you are having a fantastic New Year’s Day!

    I’ve loved U2 since Rattle and Hum. Haven’t kept up with them in a while, but they remain on my play list.
