With or without you - U2

'With or without you' is the song that took U2 to superstardom for good. They scored their first American number 1 hit, launching the album 'The Joshua tree' with a bang. At the same time, band leader Bono became involved in way too many charities, taking on some kind of Jesus image - something he would never shake off since then.

The single also reached number 4 in the UK singles chart and number 2 in the Dutch Top 40. The song recently re-entered the UK singles chart in May 2009 at number 43, based on download sales alone.

My collection: 7" single no. 914
Found: Parkpop, Den Haag, June 25, 1989
Cost: 2 guilders
Tracks: 'With or without you' / 'Luminous times (Hold on to love)', 'Walk to the water'
