In 1987, U2 released Joshua Tree and I was pretty convinced at the young age of 11, that Bono would someday be my husband. With or Without You became the song that I would run to the stereo as it neared conclusion to rewind over and over again. I'm surprised my tape cassette didn't wear out. Wait, what's a cassette?

This album remains in my top, if I'm ever stranded on a desert island, list of favorites. Somehow it never grows old and maybe because I still get that feeling of teen longing when I hear With or Without You. As an adult, Red Hill Mining Town has become my favorite track on the album and when I listen to it in the car, my daughter and I belt out the chorus as loud as we can.
I think mostly this is an album of passion. I can hear it in the voices, the instruments and the beautifully woven lyrics. It's a powerhouse. Living in California and spending time in Joshua Tree, it makes even more sense. The quiet space, beautiful desert. It really takes you somewhere.
