@U2 Originals: January 2012

Bookmark and Share

Here at @U2, one of the things we're most proud of is the original content we provide, created exclusively by our staff. In case you missed any of it in January, the highlights are posted here:

Kelley Eskridge and Iidaliisa Partanen kicked off the month by revealing the answers to the December Question of the Month, which asked fans, "What message would you write to the band on a holiday card?"

In our weekly Off the Record column, Matt McGee paid congratulations to producer Steve Lillywhite, who recently became a Commander of the British Empire, while Becky Myers looked forward to a solid concert year for many beloved acts. Sherry Lawrence lamented an unauthorized book about U2, and Aaron J. Sams discussed his continued addiction to collecting U2 items. Arlan Hess closed out the month by declaring U2 lyrics as poetry.

Our popular "Like a Song" series continued with an essay about "A Sort of Homecoming" by Ian Ryan. And in our new series "Like a Video," Tim Neufeld wrote about "Until the End of the World" as it was performed on the night of the predicted (but obviously not realized) rapture.  The "U2 Lists" piece for this month was authored by Tassoula E. Kokkoris, who discussed her Top 5 Bono Howls.

Matt McGee also put together @U2 in 2011: Top News Articles, Song Lyrics and More.
