The worst is how to dismantle an atomic bomb, though.

Not when you realize how it connects to the songs. I think it quite clever.

True.

Could you help me realise?

The background story of Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own sticks out the most and then the themes of Love and Peace, Death, the state of the world at the time. I think Bono talks about SYCMIOYO in Bono in Conversation or maybe in U2 by U2. I know I read it somewhere.  ;)

What's the background story to SYCMIOYO?

I thought they'd just chosen a line from a song that was, in the event, not included on the album.

Bono's relationship w/ his dad and the aftermath of his death was like an atomic bomb in Bono's life was what I recall.

Maybe the ladies from the book club on Bono in Conversation can help me out w/ exact references, or maybe it was covered in U2 by U2, or maybe I read an article, or maybe I imagined all of this! lol!

I think Achtung Baby is the perfect title in many ways.

I vote this..........

So the making of HTDAAB was Bono's way of dismantling the atomic bomb in his life?

I think it was in U2 By U2. You're definitely not imagining it!

I admit, I thought How To Dismantle an Atomic Bomb was a stupid title the first time I heard of it. Now I kind of like it. But I like the music on it more.

Zooropa and All That You Can't Leave Behind for me. Unforgettable Fire is cool too. And I just like saying "Achtung".
