U2 Mania!!!

Next week is a big week for my favorite living band. U2 are set to release their 12th studio album, No Line on the Horizon and invade New York City (as they normally do when their records come out). While making special appearances on Late Show with David Letterman and Good Morning America, the band will be rocking and rolling the charts as the record is released. I have been able to listen to No Line on the Horizon and I must say, it is a hell of an album. It takes a few spins to really sink into, but once you do, its a delight.

As being such a big fan, and constantly getting the same questions; "What is your favorite U2 album?" or "favorite U2 song?" I have decided to show my love and admiration and answer the questions all at once. Here are my a list of my 10 favorite U2 songs, top five favorite albums and top five favorite videos. Enjoy!
