Blue Sky Vertigo: Amazing Music for U2 Fans!

I’ve loved the band U2 ever since they first got together. (Yes, I am that old!) As a girl, I had their very first album, Boy, and then I ran out to purchase October, and War after that! I knew every single word of every song on War (thanks to the lyrics printed on the inside of the album). And I remain a huge U2 fan to this day.

However, if it’s possible, I think I’ve uncovered an even bigger U2 fan: Jeff Leisawitz! Jeff is an award-winning musician and producer who has also been crazy about U2 since their inception. In fact, his passion for U2 inspired him to recruit fourteen female vocalists and have them record a collection of U2 songs! The result is Electron Love Theory’s Blue Sky Vertigo. These songs honor the original spirit of the originals but also have their own special qualities that make them unique.

Here’s a line-up of the incredible songs on Blue Sky Vertigo:

1. Vertigo (from How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb)
2. I Will Follow (from Boy)
3. All Because of You (from How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb)
4. Two Hearts Beat as One (from War)
5. Walk On (from All That You Can’t Leave Behind)
6. Bullet the Blue Sky (from The Joshua Tree/Rattle & Hum)
7. Beautiful Day (from All That You Can’t Leave Behind)
8. New Year’s Day (from War)
9. I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking (from The Joshua Tree)
10. Bad (from Wide Awake in America/The Unforgettable Fire)
11. Sunday Bloody Sunday (from War)
12. One (from Achtung Baby)
13. With or Without You (from The Joshua Tree)
14. All I Want Is You (from Rattle & Hum)

My verdict? I love Blue Sky Vertigo! I must admit that I was a little leery at first about listening to other people sing some of my favorite songs, but my worries were quickly put to rest. I can definitely see why listeners have been giving Blue Sky Vertigo “five stars” on iTunes! If you love U2, you’ve got to get this album. Got a U2 fan in the family? This would make a great holiday gift!

  1. Not only is it a great album to listen to, but to catch U2 live in the present U2 tour is something amazing to see.
    This is an album I can listen to over and over, no doubt.
