The Refugee

This is the song that made me fall in love with U2, back in 1983. I had all their albums until they lost their way with Achtung Baby, and drifted away after that. But damn, their early music was great.

  1. Agree- the tracks from 'Boy' still send shivers down the old spine. Great OR music BTW...

  2. Agreed with the fabulous early output, but don't besmirch Achtung, Baby! OK, you can besmirch Even Better Than the Real Thing, but otherwise hands off!

  3. U2 up through Joshua Tree was sublime, all still getting regular rotation on my ipod. Having said that, I absolutely detest Bono and his camera-hungry posturing.
