안녕하세요, 근 1주일만에 찾아뵙는
유쓰미 @y-o-u-t-h-m-e 입니다. ^^

록 음악에 크게 관심이 없는 분이시더라도,
U2 라는 밴드는 들어보셨을 것 같은데요,
바로 어제(8일), 밴드 결성 43년만에(!) 처음으로
U2가 한국을 방문하여 공연을 가졌었습니다!

공연 장비를 들여오는데에만 전세기 3대가 동원되었다고 하니,
공연 규모가 얼마나 컸을지 쉽사리 짐작이 가지 않네요. ^^;

직관을 갈만큼의 팬심이 있었던 밴드는 아니라
후기로만 그 감동을 전해 듣고 있지만,

그래도 큰 의미가 있었던 내한공연이었던 만큼,
유크박스에서도 포스팅으로 다루어보려고 합니다. ^^


오늘 올려드리는 곡은,
U2 를 유명하게 만들어준 대표적인 곡들입니다.

우선 한 번 들어보세요. ^^



Album : All That You Can't Leave Behind (2000)

U2는 누구?

...

The heart is a bloom, shoots up through the stoney ground
There's no room, no space to rent in this town
You're out of luck, and the reason that you had to care
The traffic is stuck, and you're not moving anywhere
You thought you'd found a friend to take you out of this place
Someone you could lend a hand in return for grace

It's a beautiful day
Sky falls, you feel like
It's a beautiful day
Don't let it get away

...

'모든 것을 잃었지만, 아직 갖고 있는 것들에게서 기쁨을 발견하는 노래'
U2의 보컬 보노가 언급했던 노래의 의미입니다.

그래서 그런지,
노래 전반적으로 느껴지는 Positive한 바이브가 참 좋습니다. ^^

발매된지 거의 20년이 지난 곡인데, 세월이 전혀 느껴지지 않네요.
신디사이저와 전자음을 잘 사용하는
브라이언 이노가 프로듀서로 참여했지만,
이 앨범의 해당 곡에서는 전자음을 최대한 절제하고
밴드 사운드를 있는 그대로 살린 느낌이라 개인적으로 마음에 듭니다. ^^

TMI : 이 곡을 통해 U2는 2001년에 무려 3개의 그래미 상을 수상했습니다!

  • Song of the Year (올해의 노래)
  • Record of the Year (올해의 레코드)
  • Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal (최우수 록 퍼포먼스)
    (특히나 올해의 노래, 올해의 레코드는 그 의미가 더 큽니다 ^^)



간략한 아티스트 소개 (출처 : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/U2)

U2 are an Irish rock band from Dublin, formed in 1976. The group consists of Bono (lead vocals and rhythm guitar), the Edge (lead guitar, keyboards, and backing vocals), Adam Clayton (bass guitar), and Larry Mullen Jr. (drums and percussion). Initially rooted in post-punk, U2's musical style has evolved throughout their career, yet has maintained an anthemic quality built on Bono's expressive vocals and the Edge's effects-based guitar textures. Their lyrics, often embellished with spiritual imagery, focus on personal and sociopolitical themes. Popular for their live performances, the group have staged several ambitious and elaborate tours over their career.

The band formed as teenagers while attending Mount Temple Comprehensive School, when they had limited musical proficiency. Within four years, they signed with Island Records and released their debut album, Boy (1980). Subsequent work such as their first UK number-one album, War (1983), and the singles "Sunday Bloody Sunday" and "Pride (In the Name of Love)" helped establish U2's reputation as a politically and socially conscious group. By the mid-1980s, they had become renowned globally for their live act, highlighted by their performance at Live Aid in 1985. The group's fifth album, The Joshua Tree (1987), made them international superstars and was their greatest critical and commercial success. Topping music charts around the world, it produced their only number-one singles in the US to date: "With or Without You" and "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For".

Facing creative stagnation and a backlash following their documentary/double album, Rattle and Hum (1988), U2 reinvented themselves in the 1990s through a new musical direction and public image. Beginning with their acclaimed seventh album, Achtung Baby (1991), and the multimedia-intensive Zoo TV Tour, the band integrated influences from alternative rock, electronic dance music, and industrial music into their sound, and embraced a more ironic, flippant image. This experimentation continued through their ninth album, Pop (1997), and the PopMart Tour, which were mixed successes. U2 regained critical and commercial favour with the records All That You Can't Leave Behind (2000) and How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb (2004), which established a more conventional, mainstream sound for the group. Their U2 360° Tour of 2009–2011 set records for the highest-attended and highest-grossing concert tour in history. The group most recently released the companion albums Songs of Innocence (2014) and Songs of Experience (2017), the former of which received criticism for its pervasive, no-cost release through the iTunes Store.

U2 have released 14 studio albums and are one of the world's best-selling music artists, having sold an estimated 150–170 million records worldwide.[1] They have won 22 Grammy Awards, more than any other band, and in 2005, they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in their first year of eligibility. Rolling Stone ranked U2 at number 22 on its list of the "100 Greatest Artists of All Time". Throughout their career, as a band and as individuals, they have campaigned for human rights and social justice causes, including Amnesty International, Jubilee 2000, the ONE/DATA campaigns, Product Red, War Child, and Music Rising.

그래미상 22회 수상에 빛나는 살아있는 전설,
아일랜드 출신의 록밴드 U2 입니다.

결성 후 43년이라는 세월이 지났는데,
아직도 이렇게 왕성한 투어활동을 하는것을 보며
정말 경외심이 드는 밴드입니다.

음악성과 대중성을 동시에 잡기가 참 쉽지 않은데,
그 어려운 것을 해낸 몇 안되는 밴드이기도 하고,
음악 뿐만 아니라 국제적, 사회적 이슈에 대한 관심과
이해도가 높으며 본인들의 생각과 의견을
음악을 통해 투영하는 능력이 뛰어난 밴드입니다.

내한공연 후기 영상들을 보니
직관을 가지 않은게 살짝 아쉬운 마음마저 드네요.. ^^;

오늘의 추천곡이 마음에 드셨다면,
다음 곡들도 들어보세요.
띵곡 퍼레이드가 되겠습니다 ^^


U2 - Vertigo (Official Video)

U2 곡 중에 가장 신나는 곡을 고르라면 저는 이 곡을 꼽고 싶습니다. ^^



U2 - Elevation (Official Video)

Vertigo 와 우열을 가리기 힘들정도로 귀에 쏙쏙 박히고 신나는 곡입니다. ^^



U2 - With Or Without You

많은 리스너들의 갬성(?)을 자극하는 발라드 록입니다.. 후렴구가 참 좋네요.


제가 개인적으로 록 음악을 좋아하는 이유중에 하나가,
'세월을 타지 않는 바이브' 인데,

정말이지 마지막 추천곡인 With or Without You 같은 곡은,
1987년에 발매된 곡이 맞나 싶을 정도로
30년이 지난 지금 들어도 세련되고 아름답습니다.

대중음악 역사상 가장 위대한 밴드 중 하나이자,
록 음악의 살아있는 전설인 밴드, U2 였습니다.
(이 밴드를 더 멋지게 소개해드리지 못해 죄송한 마음이 들 정도입니다..)


그럼 즐감하시고, 오늘도 좋은 하루 되세요..^^
