U2 are Name Droppers!



U2 is the most indecisive band in musical history, I think. For proof, look no further than the release date of their new CD, which will be out some time between Tomorrow & New Year’s Day (year withheld). Even lyrically, U2 illustrates its indecisive ways. 23 years later, I still can’t decide if the character in U2’s Acrobat is bulimic, like the emancipated kid on the cover of U2’s Boy, or just an absolute pig with all the swallowing, choking, throwing up and spitting. U2 song titles are not above this fray either. U2’s Native Son was an awkward child until U2 agreed to allow it to go through the “change”, eventually becoming Vertigo. Apparently he did find what he was looking for and had it surgically removed. Most of U2’s “kids” have gone through similar changes. Rummaging through the archives, I found what everyone has been looking for, a list of U2 original song titles before the “change.” Can you identify which U2 song these titles eventually “changed” into? Leave your answers in the comment section, as well as any others you thought of for others to solve.   Good luck.

It was either dropping out of college, becoming a crystal meth addict or that I’m still living in my parent’s basement at age 35, I’m not sure exactly when my life took a turn for the worse.
