"I could pick the prior concert as well but this performance after Bono's father's death is just amazing. All I Want Is You/Streets and One are standouts to me. It was a incredibly emotional concert that was palpable, then of course 9/11 was just days after and I could include those following shows in South Bend,IN or New York. But this Slane show could be the essential U2 concert."
First heard of U2 from my dad (huge fan since Boy) but it was when Vertigo came out when I was a little kid. I remember just loving the song as a child, and then it was Beautiful Day and so on and so forth.
Lover of U2; including you, too.
"She is the light of my life. She is more perfect the longer we are together. I am completely in love with her."

The song 'New Year's Day' is about the solidarity movement going on in Poland in the early 1980's. The government had promised changes and reforms, which would take effect on Jan. 1 of the following year, but the promises were empty.
