U2 was never my band. Like so much other music, they were on the radio in the background, on television, at parties--nearly ubiquitous. You know, just fine. Just there. Stuff for the masses. I'd rather hear something else, etc.
BUT, if there's a time period or a vibe for this week's walk, it's typified by the video for New Year's Day. Not my band, but after all these years--my soundtrack.
(And the rereleases on vinyl sound gorgeous and look even better...I've bought them all. Perhaps there's a U2 switch in the works? Hmm.)
