52 Songs for 52 Weeks: Week 18 – New Year’s Day by U2

On New Year’s Day 1981, the communists running Poland declared Martial Law in order to go after Lech Walesa and the Solidarity movement.  The Communists eventually lost.

You really can’t have a great song list without at least one U2 song.  This one has always been my favorite U2 song.  Outstanding piano on this one – mixed in with a killer guitar.

‘Under a blood red sky, a crowd has gathered, black and white, alls entwined, the chosen few, the newspapers say, its true its true, and we can break through

I was going to save this for January – but people are clamoring for more classic 80’s.  Great video to boot (featuring Soviet forces in WWII trying to destroy civilization).


Nothing changes on New Year’s Day…
