U2 is a group rock band that formed in Dublin, Ireland in the late 1970’s, a time before most of us reading this were even thought of. U2 formed in 1978 when drummer Larry Mullen posted a note on a bulletin board looking to form a band. The members are Bono (Lead vocals and guitar), The Edge (Guitar), Adam Clayton (Bass guitar) and Larry Mullen Jr. (Drums). This Irish rock band started out with a post-punk sound then exalted to many other genres of popular music. U2 has many different elements in music that target spirituality, philosophy, human rights, inspiration,sociopolitical themes and personal subjects.
A “Song for Someone” is the third single from U2’s latest album, Songs of Innocence. A tender song of awkward first love that is about Bono’s wife Ali; the couple first met when they were teenagers. “If there is a kiss I stole from your mouth,” he sings. “And there is a light, don’t let it go out.” They are still married to this day.
In their many of years of success, U2 has sold millions of albums with #1 albums in the U.S. and in the United Kingdom. They have earned Grammy awards, collaborated/wrote for many other musicians and joined soundtracks for major films (Batman Forever). They are also activist in many organizations for different countries all over the world.
