#21/100 – U2 – Under A Blood Red Sky (Live)

This pick coincides with St. Patrick’s Day, and U2 are one of the few Irish bands I have music by, especially on vinyl. This is an older release, coming before the fame and fortune of Joshua Tree. Side A has some familiar tunes to those who know the U2 back catalogue, but 11 O’Clock Tick Tock really stood out. I love the interplay between the lead, bass, and the very clock-ish drums. It’s a great track and easily the best performance on the side, maybe even the album.
