U2 Sings about Medical Conditions
« on: January 10, 2018, 12:18:37 PM »
The thread about Bono's brush with death gave me this idea.  In that thread, somebody mentioned that Blackout could refer to Bono having blacked out with a medical condition called TIA.  The next poster stated maybe that caused him to have Vertigo.  And, voila!  We're off on an interesting tangent.  So, I started this thread for a place to discuss any U2 lyrics or words associated with medical conditions.  Blackout and Vertigo are two such conditions.  Any other medical references in their lyrics?

And why not?  Other than lyrics about drug addiction, I've never seen the topic discussed before.  I suppose I could start another thread on the biblical references in U2 lyrics, or political references in their songs, or another top 10 thread, or any of the other dozen or so topics that get rehashed every couple of years.  I had an idea, I ran with it.  Feel free to add to the discussion.....or not.  Your choice.
