Stuck In A Moment has a nice breezy feel to it too that I find evocative of Spring.

I can't remember.  Many seasons have come and gone since I listened to it.

When's the next poll? Let's get this show on the road!

We shall be taking a two month break from the tournament in order to fully digest and come to terms with the results of the first round.

Hmmm...in a few months it will be high spring and then everyone will be in a different season of their U2ness. I definitely feel this way about my music.

Which U2 songs are in season during springtime?


All That You Can't Leave Behind has always felt like a very "spring" album to me.

Indeed, but not just the songs themselves how ONE listens to the songs. I feel differently myself in spring, so I relate to music differently. Thus, I could easily pick a different song because of my feelings at the moment. No?

In the way of spring-like songs - songs full of life and hope - I would include Miracle Drug, Unknown Caller, Magnificent, The First Time, Window in the Skies, All Because of You, etc.

Tumbling Dice - love your comment - "I can't remember. Many seasons have come and gone since I listened to it." However, that also means that possibly I shouldn't love it because perhaps you have no love for ATYCLB...

Oh no, please love it to death.  Let your innocent love of U2 live forever.  Don't let the 00's U2 disliking bastards on the forum get their claws into you like they did me.  Stay away from the likes of Briscoetheque and The Exile, whatever you do.

I voted Discotheque and Miracle Drug. They're both really different, actually...:D Sometimes it just hits you how much U2 varies up.
