favorite of all-time

With U2's new album release quickly approaching, I want to share with you, over the next month, some of my favorite songs. U2 is my ultimate, all-time favorite band. There truly is none better (sorry bro...Coldplay just isn't there yet). The talent, the voice, their sound, cannot be matched. So, we start the countdown. I would say we are doing a top 10 but not sure I can narrow it down to just 10. We'll just get started and see where it takes me.

Kite is from their album All That You Can't Leave Behind. I remember the first time I listened to the album, I was on an airplane...can't remember exactly where I was going. But I remember Kite playing and I getting goose bumps. The emotion behind the song spills over. I know Bono wrote this song for his dad, Bob. Without further ado, here is a live version of Kite. Enjoy.

Thank you for this. I LOVE U2. But I've never seen them in of my must-do's! Hopefully since they're releasing a new album they'll hit the road again soon. Have a great weekend!
