Songs With Endurance

November 1, 2009

So I got back from Vancouver after seeing U2’s last show on the 2009 North American Tour.  As a fan,  I had a great time. Every song I knew and they played almost everything I wanted to hear.  It was pretty much the exact same set as the YouTube Rose Bowl Show, so there were few surprises, but still seeing it in person was key. 60,000 people singing “Sunday Bloody Sunday” in unison is an experience hard to top.

U2 has so many hits that still feel fresh today. Streets, One, With or Without You, Sunday Bloody Sunday, Pride, etc..  They aren’t songs that fit a moment in time. They’ve endured. That’s something every artist should strive for in my opinion. Writing material that you can go back to later on and still get into it.  I don’t know if you know exactly when you’ve got a song like that,  but ignoring trends and following your own gut seems like a good place to start.
