Look what’s coming to Showtime next month!!:
For the record, Achtung Baby is my favorite U2 album. I have listened to it, on average, probably about a hundred million times 😉 While it was the album that brought the band back from the brink of a break-up, it is also one that brought me back into the heart of my U2 fandom. In the years between initially falling in love with them at 11 and AB – a lot had happened: High school, boyfriends, college – typical distractions at that age.
Of course it was my Awesome Mama who first introduced me to U2, who gave them back to me by leaving AB under the 1991 Christmas tree. I heard it and fell head over heels for them all over again, and I’ve never again wavered in my appreciation, adoration and absolute gratitude for their entire existence and how integral it has been in my life.
I will probably have to buy Showtime for the month of October and watch this a good hundred million times too 😉
