Decision time....

Brothers In Arms is a haunting song, the best off their album with the same name, up their with Sultans of Swing imo !

but for me it has to be New Years Day from 3rd their album War & also featured on one of the best live albums of all-time 'Under A Blood Red Sky'

U2 were one of favourite bands in the early 80's, their raw, edgy sound did it for me at that time.
The Edge was the reason I loved the band, not only a superb guitarist he was also an accomplished pianist as proof on the following clip, he is one my musical heroes from the 80's

If you haven't seen this video, you've missed out on a gem
