Welcome to the latest instalment of our most recent blog series Top Tens. Last time, we unveiled our 15 most enjoyable Peter Hollens cover videos. This time, in honour of one of the Peter Hollens videos which was one of my favourites (Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For), and also because of U2’s new album The Joshua Tree (Super Deluxe) releasing this week; I reckon it’s time to reveal our top ten inspirational U2 songs!
Before we dive in though, let’s recap for those of you who do not know who U2 is. They’re a band from Ireland, comprising of Bono (lead singer), The Edge (guitar), Adam Clayton (bass guitar) and Larry Mullen Jr (drums), and they’ve been singing songs and touring together since 1976. Excuse me, did we hear that right? 1976? For 41 years and counting? Yep! Just check out their discography on Wikipedia (because I don’t really want to list their entire achievements- it’s be around 2000 words long, I reckon!), and be amazed. Bono is known for his activism for social justice, and many of the band’s songs contain religious and spiritual undertones, and themes about the human condition. But enough about the band, let the songs speak for themselves! Check out ten below! And be on the lookout for our review of The Joshua Tree (Super Deluxe) this month.
