Great art right in front of us
This video reflects the joyful energy of "Beautiful Day" with an amazing mixture of a U2 performance and symbols that are omnipresent on "All That You Can´t Leave Behind". Images of Charles de Gaulle airport and the band with luggage give us a sense of the journey of life we all go through. The plane flying directly over the band looks breathtaking and translates the power of the song into a strong visual effect.

U2 BEAUTIFUL DAY
The heart is a bloom Shoots up through the stony ground There's no room No space to rent in this town You're out of luck And the reason that you had to care The traffic is stuck And you're not moving anywhere You thought you'd found a friend To take you out of this place Someone you could lend a hand In return for grace It's a beautiful day Sky falls, you feel like It's a beautiful day Don't let it get away You're on the road But you've got no destination You're in the mud In the maze of her imagination You're lovin' this town Even if that doesn't ring true You've been all over And it's been all over you It's a beautiful day Don't let it get away It's a beautiful day Touch me Take me to that other place Teach me I know I'm not a hopeless case See the world in green and blue See China right in front of you See the canyons broken by cloud See the tuna fleets clearing the sea out See the Bedouin fires at night See the oil fields at first light and See the bird with a leaf in her mouth After the flood all the colors came out It was a beautiful day Don't let it get away Beautiful day Touch me Take me to that other place Reach me I know I'm not a hopeless case What you don't have you don't need it now What you don't know you can feel it somehow What you don't have you don't need it now Don't need it now It was a beautiful day

This song means a lot to me.
I first heard this song at work on the radio. I was going thru a divorce. The joy I head in this song sounded so far from what I was currently feeling. I remember thinking, "wow, maybe I could feel that joy someday.

Beautiful Day
I love the video and the song. Elevation is my favorite U2 tour. Thank you for the music, U2. Now that we are in lock down, I am even more grateful for the concert memories. U2, come play a small, live set in a COVID-19 free fan's home :). It would be wonderful to reverse roles, whereas many fans (including myself) have traveled to see you, come see your fans in 2021 :).

Airship
I remember this well I won a competition on radio Clyde to go to Manchester to see u2 airship and receive a copy of the album but the day before I got a phone call telling me the expected weather on the Saturday was to be really bad so the airship would not be going up. So instead I got U2’s back catalogue which I had so I got 2 train tickets from Glasgow to Manchester to see the gig and a night in the hotel the crew were staying in.
