Today's Musical Monday is a salute to U2’s Joshua Tree Album 30th Anniversary tour hitting the MetLife Stadium in New Jersey this week. NYC is a buzz with anticipation for the celebration of an album released in 1987. That’s staying power!
“I still haven’t found what I’m looking for”
-- U2, May 1987
The Joshua Tree Album was a major departure for the Irish band after exposure to American roots rock. U2 showcased a gospel influence in I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For, which ignited the world.
One of the beauties of this song is the way the fans have interpreted it. Born of lead singer Bono’s spiritual quest, it speaks to fans on many levels – those searching for love, religion or life’s purpose.
