U2 & GMC

A simple challenge is completed thanks to one of the world's greatest bands!

In light of the U2 concert tonight at Scott Stadium, Cheryn Stone said that I couldn't make a U2 reference during each of my weather hits this morning during Good Morning Charlottesville. Since I'm always up for a challenge, I set to work looking through my albums trying to prove her wrong. I was able to do it, but the more fun part was I got to integrate two of my true loves – music and weather – together. How can one argue with that?

Here are the references made throughout GMC, in no particular order. Did you catch all 25 of them?

Beautiful Day (from the album “All That You Can't Leave Behind”)

Sunday Bloody Sunday (from the album “War”)

Twilight (from the album “Boy”)

October (U2's second album)

New Year's Day (from the album “War”)

Seconds (from the album “War”)

Get On Your Boots (from the album “No Line On The Horizon”)

Magnificent (from the album “No Line On The Horizon”)

Walk On (from the album “All That You Can't Leave Behind”)

Vertigo (from the album “How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb”)

Bad (from the album “The Unforgettable Fire”)

Where the Streets Have No Name (from the album “The Joshua Tree”)

Staring at the Sun (from the album "Pop")

Bullet The Blue Sky (from the album “The Joshua Tree”)

Even Better Than The Real Thing (from the album “Achtung Baby”)

Sweetest Thing (from the album “The Best of 1980-1990”)

Desire (from the album “Rattle & Hum”)

There's no way I could ever pass up a legendary band like U2, so I ask for forgiveness in advance if I seem a little tired tomorrow morning on GMC. Hopefully you understand...

Three, two, one, fade out-
