Never ages...
Have been listening to this since the day it came out. It never ages, and I still get chills at the guitar solo.

Well,this is different?
I recall this one coming out.Radio 1 in the Uk have always been really supportive of U2 launches and Gary Davis,a regular dj of the time had previewed a lot of their new stuff.'The Fly' kinda stunned everyone as the first single to be lifted off the album,but it was different - so glad we didn't get Joshua Tree #3. I remember queuing at midnight at a store in Belfast (it was a longer queue than that for Rattle n Hum a couple of years earlier),with a great atmosphere waiting for the store to open to get our hands on Achtung Baby. The album title,the vibe,the beat,The Fly,the other tunes. This was new U2.I was 22 years old,it made quite an impression. Remember Bono's quote on the London rooftop vividly.....'I'm learning to lie'.... and the persona was hatched.Just a pity it took so many so long to get it,and some hacks still don't even get it today. The Fly and subsequent tour with McPhisto etc etc.Brilliant. 'look what you've done to me,you've made me very famous and I thank you!'

There are no secrets!!
The Fly from the Elevation Tour- Live from Boston is hard core, hard hitting, in-your-face, pure adrenaline, no-holds-barred rock at its best.

Everything you know is wrong
This video was U2;s first strong statement after \"going away and dreaming it all up again\". Gone were the cowboy hats and the wide spaces of American deserts were left behind. Here we found ourselves in an artificial European and surreal and highly engineered world and we could finally surrender to the temptation of modern life-TV. Slogans like \"Watch more TV\" appeared on the screen, already anticipating the astounding visuals of ZOO TV. With the rapid change of images and colours partly reduced to darker shades, the video provided the perfect surroundings for wild music that seemed to come from a gloomy and uncertain place. And it was the first astonishing manifestation of Bono;s newest persona: The Fly. When I saw this video for the first time I was stunned by this character-dressed in shiny black leather, with hair shortened and eyes covered by gigantic Fly shades he demonstrated U2;s radical change of sound with his new look. In 1991 U2 became cool. And still they are.

Yum
I remember seeing this for the first time and thinking, \"they\'ve done it again.\" Reinvented and refreshed their look image and sound without selling out. Plus Bono never looked so hot as he did during the ZOOTV days.
