STRANGE, although the lead singer is buried in Paris, this song was apparently on the charts only in the US, Canada, and New Zealand.
Sorry PEOPLE, I didn't check before posting. #-o

You guys are correct. Wolfie was first. =D>

I do not know why I am not getting notifications. I apologize for the day delay. We are sitting in the Newark airport now, and I will try to both get the notifications working and not grab the song choice again too soon.

OK, done a little bit of research on this one.
Although we've had the band before, not the song. Charted high in both the UK and US.

Sounds like the type of pretentious lyrics that U2 are so fond of. But the song doesn't ring any bells and it's probably not by U2 in any event.

Thank you Steve.

You will need to go back a few years for this one.
