the Joshua Tree, from gwennie2006...

The color one is a shot I took in 1979 When I drove back from Californa. When Joshua Tree came out, I loved it, and listened to it all the time. It wasn't until a few years ago, that I noticed this. It was the same tree.

It was pretty amazing that back in March, U2 played in Somerville, Massachusetts. They were wanting to do a practice for their upcoming World Tour....and did at the Somerville Theater. Really incredible. They even went across the street afterwards for a beer.

Years ago (1980) a local radio station, WBCN, would have live shows from the Paradise Theater. They often promote local bands, and on ocassion get some well know names to come perform.

Anywho, at the time U2 was not at all known in the US, but the program director knew of them, and booked them for the show. Well, they stole the show, and become so incredibly popular that they were heard almost continuously on the radio station. Carter Alan, the program director, would go on to write two biographies of the group...

Ever since, the band has had a bit of a soft spot for Boston, and everyone here is quite happy for that. One of my all time favorite groups, and a treat to see.

  1. One Tree Hill...

    We turn away to face the cold, enduring chill
    As the day begs the night for mercy love
    The sun so bright it leaves no shadows
    Only scars carved into stone
    On the face of earth
    The moon is up and over One Tree Hill
    We see the sun go down in your eyes

    You run like a river, on like a sea
    You run like a river runs to the sea

    And in the world a heart of darkness
    A fire zone
    Where poets speak their heart
    Then bleed for it
    Jara sang, his song a weapon
    In the hands of love
    You know his blood still cries
    From the ground

    It runs like a river runs to the sea
    It runs like a river to the sea

    I don't believe in painted roses
    Or bleeding hearts
    While bullets rape the night of the merciful
    I'll see you again
    When the stars fall from the sky
    And the moon has turned red
    Over One Tree Hill

    We run like a river
    Run to the sea
    We run like a river to the sea
    And when it's raining
    Raining hard
    That's when the rain will
    Break my heart

    Raining...raining in the heart
    Raining in your heart
    Raining...raining to your heart
    Raining, raining...raining
    Raining to your heart
    Raining...raining in your heart
    Reigning in your heart..
    To the sea

    Oh great ocean
    Oh great sea
    Run to the ocean
    Run to the sea
