U2 Trivia
« on: November 21, 2009, 08:24:25 AM »
This thread is for all of you out there who have some random trivia on U2 that you're dying to tell someone, but you know no one would care except those of us on this forum.

Here's mine: The Edge is the one responsible for Sunday Bloody Sunday. While Bono and Ali were on their honeymoon, Edge began working on a lyric and guitar riff. When Bono got back, he worked on the lyric too, attempting to contrast Ireland's Bloody Sundays and Easter Sunday.

At the very end, when Edge keeps on singing the Sunday Bloody Sunday part, Bono says, "The real battle's yet begun, to claim the victory Jesus won on Sunday Blood Sunday."

That's cool, and it's also interesting because he played Batman in the movie that U2 contributed Hold Me Thrill Me Kiss Me Kill Me.
