Found out today that U2 plan to release another 'best of' album on 20th November. This also happens to be my birthday. I don't believe this to be a coincidence.
Anyway to mark the occasion of this announcement you can find below my favourite U2 lyrics of their 30 year journey. I'm willing to accept that someone somewhere has written better lyrics than Bono...I just haven't found them yet. Any suggestions?
From 'The Fly'-
It's no secret that a conscience can sometimes be a pest,
It's no secret that ambition bites the nails of success,
Every artist is a cannibal
Every poet is a thief,
All kill their inspiration,
Then sing about their grief.
