La lista está muy bien currada, hay muchas canciones buenas pero cuatro de los grupos que aparecen son de mis favoritos de los 80 y de toda la historia de la música. Esos grupos son Depeche Mode, The Romantics, REO Speedwagon y A Flock Of Seagulls.

The band faced several challenges in writing their second album, October . On an otherwise successful American leg of the Boy Tour, Bono's briefcase containing in-progress lyrics and musical ideas was lost backstage during a March 1981 performance at a nightclub in Portland, Oregon . [40] [41] The band had limited time to write new music on tour and in July began a two-month recording session at Windmill Lane Studios largely unprepared, [42] forcing Bono to quickly improvise lyrics. [40] Lillywhite, reprising his role as producer, called the sessions "completely chaotic and mad". [43] October ' s lead single, " Fire ", was released in July and was U2's first song to chart in the UK. [42] [44] Despite garnering the band an appearance on UK television programme Top of the Pops , the single fell in the charts afterwards. [40] On 16 August 1981, the group opened for Thin Lizzy at the inaugural Slane Concert , but the Edge called it "one of the worst shows [U2] ever played in [their] lives". [42] Adding to this period of self-doubt, Bono's, the Edge's, and Mullen's involvement in a Charismatic Christian group in Dublin called the "Shalom Fellowship" led them to question the relationship between their religious faith and the lifestyle of a rock band. [40] [45] Bono and the Edge considered quitting the band due to their perceived spiritual conflicts before deciding to leave Shalom instead. [40] [46]
