On 21 March 1987, thirty-two years ago today, U2 reached the top spot of the UK albums chart with their fifth album THE JOSHUA TREE. It was their 3rd numero uno LP in Great-Britain. Although Turn Up The Volume rates this one as their third best, behind ‘Achtung Baby‘ (1991) and ‘All That You Can’t Leave Behind‘ (2000) you can’t ignore that ‘The Joshua Tree‘ contains some of their best songs ever. Here are 3 of them…
– I STILL HAVEN’T FOUND WHAT I’M LOOKING FOR –
– WHERE THE STREETS HAVE NO NAME –
– WITH OR WITHOUT YOU –
