There are so many...

Do you feel loved...every line, every verse, for sexy romance.

Drowning man, for desperate romance.

But, for just pure, uh, performing the act...Hawkmoon.

I think Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses deserves a mention.

It's a dark, heart-wrenching song about an impossible and dangerous love. For me it features some of the most heartfelt lyrics ever written by Bono.

Rumours say it was written about a band member (it is unknown who, but it was one of the "married" ones) who had an intense "affair", but the relationship was ended because it posed a threat to his marriage.

I've never heard that before.  Where did you hear these rumours?

This Rolling Stone article specifically says that the song is about an affair, and I do remember reading that Larry said it was about an affair a band member had, although it was a while ago.

hmmm, now i'm intrigued.  I was a bit disappointed that in Bono on Bono (I think that's the UK title anyway of the book of conversations with Bono), he side-stepped all questions about infidelity other than speaking in generalities.  I don't want gossip, but i'm just curious how a rock star who's been married to his childhood sweetheart is able to stay grounded and fight off temptation (I know temptation is a big theme of AB).

I thought I read that the affair inspired "So Cruel" as well. I could be wrong though.
So Cruel it's about the end of Edge's marriage with his first wife Aislinn.
The song about the "affair" it's Wild Horses. Unfortunately, I can't remember where I read about the subject, but I'm 100% sure it's correct.

True. I guess I'm thinking purely romantic, well-ending songs, as per the list above. Forgot Promenade.

I remember this story/rumour about Wild Horses too. (minus the "married" part)
