A-Ha vs U2

I never really cared for this song...

because I've always loved this song...

I can't be the only one to hear the similarities!

One thing nostalgic about the U2 song, though. Schmitty used it as an audio PA sound check EVERY MORNING when I was working the very very early AM shift at KSTP. I found it slightly comforting and quite optimistic of him. That was where I very first heard the U2 song. And every time I was reminded of A-Ha. There was a strange synergy in the whole thing because the sun always shines on TV, while we're doing our pre-checks for live television broadcast. And Bono reassured me that it was a beautiful day, even when Patrick Hammer said otherwise.

the meaning of life, the universe, and everything.

Now the whole offer which Christianity makes is this: that we can, if we let God have His way, come to share in the life of Christ. If we do, we shall then be sharing a life which was begotten, not made, which always has existed and always will exist. Christ is the Son of God. If we share in this kind of life we also shall be sons of God. We shall love the Father as He does and the Holy Ghost will arise in us. He came to this world and became a man in order to spread to other men the kind of life He has—by what I call ‘good infection’. Every Christian is to become a little Christ. The whole purpose of becoming a Christian is simply nothing else.
C.S. Lewis from Mere Christianity.

What is the meaning of life? This ^. If you do not line up with that, there is no meaning to your life [yet?]. If you reject this, perhaps your life has no meaning?



Just saying.

don't panic
