Sixty Minute Tape, Song 4: U2, “The Fly”

Late in 2016, I posted on Facebook about the contents of a mix tape I put together sometime in early 92.  It’s the only sixty-minute tape of its kind in my collection.  I’ll be re-upping modified versions of those sixteen posts over the coming weeks.

Achtung Baby was the last essential U2 album IMO; they did a fabulous job of merging their own sound with what was up-and-coming in 91. Somewhat hard to pick a favorite from it–there are several contenders.  This, the first single, is one of them. The revelation that we’ve been listening to a long distance call over a payphone remains a great moment for me, even if it’s anachronistic now.
