Mullen Monday: Under a Blood Red Sky edition

2 Comments

Before there were fly shades and skullcaps, before Bad and Streets, before Hats and Haircuts, before saving the world and Achtung – there were four Irish boys on the side of a mountain in a rain storm making their mark:

Any time I hear this song – and mind you, I’ve heard this song a TON – I still, still blast it and scream it and feel the same thrill and joy as if I was experiencing it for the first time! How powerful is that??

U2 Live at Red Rocks is such an energetic show of the band just at the very cusp of what they were about to become. And they are such babies, my GOD! (also the Fangirl in me never stops swooning over how goddamn gorgeous Larry was in this era!)

Can't you just hear my Inner 11-year-old squealing??!

  1. Do you ever stop and think, “Wow, Larry is 50!!!!!” I STILL can’t believe it. He looks as smashing now as he did then. And he’ll still look like an Artane fox when he’s 60!

    Sunday Bloody Sunday is one of my favorite songs from the Red Rocks show. It was also one of the first “live” U2 songs I put on my iPod. Ah, Best Band Ever ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. S W E E T! It does give one goosebumps!
