Line(s) of the Day #One

U2 One

Did I ask too much
More than a lot
You gave me nothing
Now it’s all I got
We’re one
But we’re not the same
We hurt each other
Then we do it again

Taken from the song One by the Irish rock band U2, from their seventh studio album Achtung Baby (1991). Widely considered one of the best songs ever written, it showcases the songwriting ability of their lead singer Bono, who has demonstrated it in other songs such as If God would send his Angels and Beautiful Day.

      • He was actually quite dismissive to be honest. I think I got him on a bad day. His wife Ali was lovely though, her and the kids were sitting behind us and my mum and her chatted for the whole flight. It was Ali who suggested I go down to Bono and get his autograph. Ah well, everyone has off days ☺️

      • I’ve been lucky in that every celebrity I’ve met has been really nice. The use of celebrity doesn’t extend to the frontman of a multi-million award-winning rock group mind ha.

  1. Achtung Baby! One of my all time favourite albums. I wish it was more readily available on vinyl, it’s hard to justify the $200 price tag right now on Amazon!

    • Incredible album. I was watching a documentary on how they made their Joshya Tree album. Fascinating how their process works. Not many bands stay together without change ups for so long.
