One, by U2 (my favorite songs)

billkozyBillkozy on 04/15/2017

On April 18, 2006, a VH1 survey revealed that a line from U2's 1992 hit 'One' had been the favorite song lyric among 13,000 United Kingdom VH1 listeners. That favorite lyric is featured in Question 12 of this Kerblunk.

U2's frontman Bono wrote "One" and has said it is about relationships. It does seem also to represent the reunification of Germany since the band was recording in Germany when the Berlin Wall came down.

In The Los Angeles Times, Bono was quoted as saying, "It is a song about coming together, but it's not the old hippie idea of 'Let's all live together.' It is, in fact, the opposite. It's saying, 'We are one, but we're not the same'. It's not saying we even want to get along, but that we have to get along together in this world if it is to survive. It's a reminder that we have no choice".

I find the song intensely emotional and never tire of it. Rolling Stone magazine called it a "radiant ballad", and said that "Few bands can marshal such sublime power, but it's just one of the many moments on Achtung Baby when we're reminded why, before these guys were the butt of cynical jokes, they were rock & roll heroes—as they still are."
