If God Will Send His Angels
How do you pick just one song when you’ve been a fan for 30+ years. Ask me my Top 10 today, and I’d tell you a different one tomorrow. But as for If God Will Send His Angels, this one hit home in April of 2020. The reason it means so much to me is that I suffered a bout of the 2020 Global Health Pandemic known as COVID-19. And C-19 hit me hard. There were a few days that I didn’t know if I’d be able to survive. It was during these days that “IGWSHA” and visions of my late Mom (My Mom passed away in 1988) played with my mind. I couldn’t get the song out of my head (and I didn’t mind) and I kept having visions and dreams of my Mom, my angel. HEY IF GOD WILL SEND HIS ANGELS, AND IF GOD WILL SEND A SIGN. AND IF GOD WILL SEND HIS ANGELS, WOULD EVERYTHING BE ALRIGHT... Well God sent me his Angel, in repeated visions of my Mom and my new favorite U2 song, If God Will Send His Angels, on repeat. I survived C-19, and I consider myself blessed to say so. I honestly feel my time was near. But this song, and my Mom got me thru. Thanks U2!!!! You have no idea how impactful you are. Take care....

Emotion
Milan 16-10-2018 experience + innocence Tour The first concert with my daughter, incredible emotion. How to choose a song ?! .... The emotion I feel with every note is indescribable, indescribable is to see you on stage and see your eyes talking about friendship, understanding, passion, spirituality and love. I can quote "I will follow" force of nature for rhythm and meaning that brings me back to the tribulations and joys of adolescence and "Lights of Home" pure emotion, the return to spirituality and the true essence of our lives. Post a movie taken during the experience + innocence Tour in Milan 16-10-2018; I shout THANKS U2, THANKS BONO, and the raised hand of Bono is his greeting. Thank you for all the emotions you give us. I love you. Carlo Maria Gavina Lodi Italy

First time in Dublin
In February 2008 I was in Dublin for my first time. I haven't been a big fun of Stuck in a moment until "that moment". I listened to it played in acoustic version by a couple of guys in a pub and that's when I start to love that song!

with or without you
In 1988, I was 12 years old, I listened all summer With or without you with my band of friends on the beach. This song has remained the song that accompanies me everywhere.

Beautiful Day
Early 2002, our lovely and special daughter was born. Special as she has Down syndrome. A heavy period started in which we had to deal with this reality. Later that year, she was baptised. On the early morning of that Sunday, we woke up and rays of sunlight filled our bedroom. The alarm clock played it's a beautiful day. We knew instantaneously that indeed it was going to become a beautiful day on which our beautiful daughter was the star. Now some 18 years later, we feel blessed having her in our family. She lives fully in the NOW, and inspires everyone she engages with by her joy for life, humor and unconditional love.
