Thank You for the Music

I think this is one of the few parts of the country that you can hear Comfortably Numb and Sweet Home Alabama back to back on the radio - I heard them both on the local Huntsville classic rock station during my commute home today.

Experienced a weird music concidence earlier in the week. I was listening to the Florence rock station, and on the radio came this great song that I'd never heard before. I was just driving down Alternate 72 toward Florence, lost in the intensity of this new song - it started with, Uno, Dos, Tres, Catorce...

Well, you may already know the answer to this, but I had no idea if it was old or new, or who sang it; but I thought it was great, so I intended to come home and look it up in a lyrics website. Of course, it slipped my mind, but a few nights later, Krista was flipping channels and landed on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire. One of the questions was, "What group sings a song that starts with Uno, Dos, Tres, Catorce...?" Krista popped in with the answer - Vertigo, by U2. I told her about hearing it recently, and how great I thought it was and she told me we had it on iTunes - she had downloaded it a while back (Krista being a big U2 fan and all). Well, I apparently don't know my U2 that well, but now I have my question answered through an interesting string of coincidences. I guess I better burn some of Krista's music and see what I've been missing...


  1. c'mon man...Vertigo is so 3 years ago!!! haha...

    U2 is a much more spiritual experience than 80% of the CCM music out there....

    Rent the Live DVD..or better yet...sell something and go to a U2 concert. If every rock star was like Bono, I think the world would be a much better place.

    Happy 4th to you guys!


  2. I may do that...I think Krista would love me forever. I am pretty impressed with Bono's stuff. Have you read his remarks to the National Prayer Breakfast?
