Album of your Birth Year
« on: October 15, 2014, 03:49:52 AM »
So does anyone have a U2 album that was released in their birth year, and or their birthday. DO ya'll feel a special connection to that album, if so .. how?

For me, Zooropa is my birth year album. I was also born on the EXACT date U2 play ZooTv in Sydney, I was my parents first born, and my father ditched me an hr after birth with his brothers who had a band called U3, to watch the boys. Still resent them to this day, but I probs would've done the EXACT same thing.
Anyways I feel a sense of connection with Zooropa, its not my favourite album, but it was very eccentric and outspoken, exactly how I am. Its the odd child, the experimental child, and the child that never does what their told, or act how they should act. What a wonderful darn album that was.


Keen to hear everyone else's?   :D

Nearest I can do is that my son attended a U2 gig (Croke Park 2009) whilst still in his Mums tummy!

So he was blessed in the womb. Very nice.

Passengers and Hold Me, Thrill Me came out the year I was born. I don't know if I really feel a deep connection to them but it's pretty neat.

My birth year was the year that some of the Songs of Innocence have their origin in. So I guess in a prequel kind of way, this is my album.

In recent years I've had albums from my fave bands released on my birhtday (Radiohead and Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds), that was cool, hope to have SOE on the next one :-)

I was born the year Boy came out, so basically they copped my move.

Wide Awake in America was released on less than a month before I was born.

I was exactly 1 week old on the day of their legendary performance of Bad in the Live Aid concert. 

Zooropa was released on a day before my birthday

Nice

I was actually quite worried about it, I was concerned that the noise would be too much and possibly be dangerous!

She was around 3-4 months in at the time, but was assured that there was no risk at all.

No U2 albums or even a U2 band on my birth year.  To show my age, Jimi Hendrix recorded "Live at the Fillmore East" on my birthday.

Yup, I'm way too old. Rubber Soul was released 58 days after I was born.

Closest thing Ive got is that my sister and Edge have the same birthday.

The Beatles did a 5 day tour of Scotland in support of "Love Me Do" in the month I was born.  I wonder who is the oldest member of the @u2 board.  I'm 51, but I know there are older members here. Elder statesmen, speak up!
