Set List - Beautiful Day

On May 10, 2010, I posted "Set List - It's a Beautiful Day" to describe the arrival of Spring in its visual beauty and upbeat music lingering through wide open windows letting in refreshing air.

On this day - May 5, 2015 - "Set List - Beautiful Day" is a reflection of my unconditional love for Set List and going back to my roots in blogging article style about music and musicians.

"Beautiful Day" is a defining song by U2.  Of course, there are so many songs that highlight the success of U2.  Alas, I have chosen to write about "Beautiful Day" for my permanent return to Set List and U2 as the perfect start.

"Beautiful Day" is a success on several levels -

- First song on the 2000 All That You Can't Leave Behind album

- 2001 Grammy Awards:

Song of the Year...Record of the Year...Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal

- Played in all concerts as of the 2001 Elevation Tour

On January 3, 2014, Rolling Stone posted Readers' Poll:  The 10 Greatest U2 Albums.  The most predominant selections were Joshua Tree and Achtung BabyOctober, War, and All That You Can't Leave Behind ranked high as well.

U2's official website - www.u2.com - is a phenomenal source to keep in touch, from news clips to U2 history to a web shop and much more.  U2's website is currently promoting the band's upcoming Innocence + Experience tour.  Tour dates (set to begin on May 14, 2015) and ticket availability are listed under "Tours."

In conclusion to this post, my Set List motto remains strong - Play it!
