Happy 50th Birthday Bono!


I was born / I was born to sing for you / I didn’t have a choice / But to lift you up / And sing whatever song / You wanted me to / I give you back my voice / From the womb / My first cry / It was a joyful noiseU2, Magnificent 2009

Bono singing Original of the Species, a song written about his oldest daughter Jordan, and performed in Chicago on 5.10.05 on his and Jordan’s shared birthday:

There are no words that could ever adequately capture how grateful I am that this man exists.

  1. i love him worshipfully. and yet i also giggled when he said the line “some people have way to much confidence” and pointed to himself!

  2. Songs never written, people lives never changed for the better, quotes like “Larry Mullen you are a funky man” never said, sales on sunglasses would be down, and inspiration would not exist without our Bono.

    Love the video-one of my fave songs from Atomic. And it’s memorable, not like “Crumbs” (hint, hint Larry!)

    We’re so lucky as U2 fans to have this guy as our singer. We could be stuck with someone like Jon Bon Jovi 😛 HAPPY 50TH BONO!!!!!!!
