30 Day Song Challenge: A Song From My Favorite Album

DAY 19: A Song From My Favorite Album

Released on March 9th of the year I graduated from high school (1987), there have been only a handful of albums that have retained their magic for me over the years. My favorite album by my favorite band has a slew of hits on it but my favorite track is “Bullet the Blue Sky.” The lyrics are about the United States’ military intervention in the El Salvador civil war. Bono, being the political firewire that he is, told The Edge to “put El Salvador through an amplifier.” With a throbbing baseline and and a squealing guitar, this arena rock staple comes at you with a purpose and never lets up!
