Music Monday ~ U2

U2 ~ The Sweetest Thing

Originally released in 1987 as the B-Side to their smash hit single "Where The Streets Have No Name", "The Sweetest Thing" was re-issued in 1998. The concept of the song is an apology from Bono to his wife Ali, when he was working in the studio completing their album "The Joshua Tree". The video features other famous Irishman including Boyzone, Riverdance, Steve Collins & The Chippendales. The single reached number 3 in the UK singles chart. Other hits from the Irish quartet include "With Or Without You", "Desire", "Even Better Than The Real Thing" & "One" which they released with Mary J. Blige.
