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 October, the highlights are posted here:

Kelley Eskridge kicked off the month by revealing the answers to the September Question of the Month, which asked fans, "U2 agrees to play one song from the album October in a private performance for you. What song do you pick, and why?"

In our weekly Off the Record column, Matt McGee kicked off the month by commenting on his first viewing of Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark, while Sherry Lawrence gave her impression of the new U2 documentary From The Sky Down. Jill Marino shared an experience of friendship, which started at the U2 Academic Conference in 2009. Aaron J. Sams talked about the time he discovered "The Fly," and Sherry Lawrence closed out the month by offering her thoughts on the upcoming U2.com subscription gift.

In our new series "Like a Video," Tim Neufeld wrote an essay about U2's October interview. And the "U2 Lists" piece for this month was authored by Kenny Irwin, who discussed the Top 9 Live October Songs.

On a related note, we featured a bevy of additional content surrounding the 30th anniversary of October:

We also conducted a photo contest for the best images from the 360 tour.

And to tie-in with the release of Larry Mullen Jr.'s The Man On The Train, Tassoula E. Kokkoris reviewed the film and interviewed Director Mary McGuckian.

Finally, we celebrated Larry's 50th birthday with 50 Things to Love About Larry Mullen, Jr. on his 50th Birthday by Tassoula E. Kokkoris.
