Sunday bloody Sunday - U2

'Sunday bloody Sunday' is a track from U2's 1983 album 'War'. It was originally released as the album's third single in March 1983. However, this copy comes from 1985, when it was re-released after the success of 'The unforgettable fire' in the Netherlands.

It is one of U2's most overtly political songs, its lyrics describe the horror felt by an observer of The Troubles in Northern Ireland, mainly focusing on the Bloody Sunday incident in Derry where British troops shot and killed civil rights marchers. This re-released reached number 3 in the Dutch Top 40 in October 1985.

My collection: 7" single no. 332
Found: LP Top 100, Den Haag, 1985
Cost: 5,5 guilders
Tracks: 'Sunday bloody Sunday' / 'Endless deep'
