4Ever Songs: U2 “With Or Without You”

This was U2‘s breakout hit in America, where they had only modest success until The Joshua Tree album. They had long been stars in their native Ireland, and with their previous album, The Unforgettable Fire, they broke through in the UK, but until “With Or Without You” their biggest US hit was “Pride (In The Name Of Love)” at #33. When they did conquer America, they did so swiftly and thoroughly; “With Or Without You” went to #1, and “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For” followed to the top spot.
