U2 trending on iTunes store
« on: May 13, 2020, 08:02:55 PM »
So I opened iTunes store to search for a song just now, and when you open search it shows a list of trending searches. U2 is there. It's the first time I've ever seen them trending. Did a popular show play one of their songs recently, a la The Walking Dead promo playing The Troubles?

creedence clearwater revival
The Edge: “[Eno] would love to see us making albums a bit more like [Zooropa]. Where we go, ‘You know what? We’re not going to second-guess any of this. Let’s just go for it.’”

U2 Fans: We'd all love to see that, Edge.

Look at some of the other trends. I'm guessing U2 is just a part of some nostalgia thing happening.

Is Pride on Stranger Things season 4 or something?

It's the first time I've ever seen them trending. Is it even realistic, paid advertising, or just a program that randomly selects music according to your personal library?

Figured it out. R.E.M. Facebook reposted Bono's 60 Songs That Saved Me letter. I daresay others have shared as well.

That doesn't seem enough alone, but Bono's birthday may indeed be the factor.

If it were just a matter of $$$ I assume our boys would have been trending in 2017-2018.

Matt Damon returned the favour?

Bono's 60th birthday was on CNN's front page today. It was basically "Coronavirus. Trump. Coronavirus. Trump. Coronavirus. Trump. Coronavirus. Trump. Bono."

I bet Bono spent his birthday money on the spot.

I'm far more surprised to see Creedence on there.
Are you tough enough to be kind?

I watch both CNN and FOXNews.

I get to see the madness at both ends of the spectrum.
