"You’re The Best Thing About Me" - The Video

27 Sep 2017124

"Best Thing" - The Video - Watch it now.

'I can see it all so clearly
I can see what you can't see
I can see you love her loudly
When she needs you quietly…'


U2 first played New York City in 1980... and they keep coming back.  
 
The new video for "You’re The Best Thing About Me," directed by Jonas Åkerlund, sees band members reveling in the sights and sounds of New York City where, as a young Dublin four-piece, they played their first U.S. club gig in December 1980, beginning a love affair with the city which has endured for almost 40 years. 
 
Shot earlier this month while the band were on tour and featuring U2 in performance, the video is a fitting backdrop for "You're The Best Thing About Me" – Bono's love letter to his wife Ali – and serves as a visual tribute to New York,  a serenade to the city's iconic symbols of American compassion and liberty.

'I lift my lamp beside the golden door...'

Watch it now.  #U2BestThing #U2SongsofExperience #U2

Yet another that falls flat
"the best thing" is the 35-40 or so seconds when the Edge takes over, including his vocal melody. Bono sounds like a bad imitation of John Legend. I swear POP neutered their ambition - nothing daring since then. I long for them to be daring again. Still love the pre-1998 stuff (including 1/2 of POP) but they've stagnated musically and in their politics since then..

U2 is the best thing!
Loved the video! Admittedly more than the song itself. But I love the reasons behind the song - Bono writing it for Ali. I love it when they do band videos like this.

Just another reason U2 is the best! So fun! These guys look fantastic, cooler than cool! Their strength, confidence, compassion and humility just oozes out. My #1 band still going strong and making beautiful music! Love from Boston

The Golden door. .. ... ....
I?am I, your the best thing about me is the new single for that new born album, I will by it as a LP-vinyl. The vinyl sounds so mutch better than the cd. So U2, come on with that next album and is there also a free download card include by the LP? The Waterboys did that also with there new LP. So, tonight I saw an half moon, whitout the hole.. .. . Love and Light my way, Underground Oldenzaal Town, Detlev Lassche, better knowing as the Vertigo Hunter. Miss You Sugar.
