[Disclaimer: I am not a musician. I can sing. I remember most of the recital piece I played on the piano when I was 6. But I’m not a musician. I know what I like and what I don’t like and what will likely be the soundtrack when I arrive in hell.]

I’m not much of a U2 fan… not really. But because I have this funny story… and because U is not an easy letter… I offer this little anecdote.
When I was a teenager, I went on a school field trip with the French club to the Museum of Fine Arts. [Not that kind of French club… but then again, my boyfriend was also in the French club…] Mr. G, French teacher extraordinaire, trusted us to be mature enough to explore on our own and meet back at the bus at the specified time. But he wanted to be sure we knew he was serious about the time.
And so he said… ‘The bus is leaving at 1 o’clock… with or without you!’
The entire bus full of French Club students broke into song in unison like one big chorus…
‘With or without you… I can’t live… with or without you…’
And holy shit, Bono is young in this video…!
other u artists worth a listen
I’ve got nothing…
