Genre of the Week: You’re the Best Thing About Me, by U2

us flag

The band U2 has been producing some very good hits in the last 40 years, including Where the Streets Have No Name, With or Without You, In the Name of Love, …..

and this genre of the Week!

Released in 2017, this song looks at the best sides of New York and the people the band has met along the way. One could say that when looking at the best sides of the US, even if it is difficult at times, one can come away with the best memories and what America (still) stands for today: freedom, the pursuit of happiness and equality, and the only place where the person is made and remade based on experiences visiting or even living there.

In memory of those who died during the infamous attacks in New York and Washington on 11 September, 2001, this Genre of the Week is for you to watch and think about. More info beyond that would be my criticism which I want to leave open for you to do. 🙂
