Bono - 60 Songs That Saved My Life

Post by panam » Sun May 10, 2020 3:17 pm

At first i thought it was just a simple playlist chosen by him because his 60th birthday, but i realized it's a kind of "self-celebration" to the music that was part of his life

Nice that he picked the Bocelli song.

And not self-congratulatory either - the U2 feature on "XXX" is the only song here he worked on.

How about the number 1? He is literally credited there.

I thought I had deleted that post when I realized my mistake. Apparently not. There’s also his cover of I’ve Got You Under My Skin with Frank Sinatra.

He wrote the Sinead song as well. Wouldn't be surprised if he wrote some of the others.

I remember thinking when I first heard The Maker that it sounds exactly like Bono.

I don't know if I'd call it ego to say his own songs saved his life, though. If they were important experiences for him, and helped him through a rough patch, then good for him.
