Happy Birthday Starlight

Starlight over at Here Comes A Storm In The Form of A Girl has a birthday on Sunday. It's strange how you can make friends on this thing. You never meet them but you consider them a friend. So Happy Birthday to you Starlight.

And for your birthday I could only think of one thing, seeing as how much you like U2. This is the video from their new single "Get On Your Boots."

The next is a video of Bono talking about writing:

Now what I've tried to do is find some U2 songs that you might not have heard. (Probably little chance of that since you're such a big fan, but these are songs that aren't found on any of their "official" albums.)

First up is "Stand By Me" which was originally done by Ben E. King and one of my favorite songs of all time.

Now we present "Redemption Song" originally by Bob Marley.

And finally we have the Monkees' "Daydream Believer."

Happy Birthday Starlight!
