Bono / U2 cover Bob Dylan – Happy Birthday Bono

His [Bob Dylan] voice has been a bee buzzing around my ear since I can remember being conscious, It’s an unusual voice, not always soothing, sometimes nagging, but it reminds us of the possibilities for music and its place in the world.
-> Bono (July 1984 – published May 17, 2001)

Knockin on Heaven’s Door

Mama, take this badge off of me
I can’t use it anymore
It’s gettin’ dark, too dark for me to see
I feel like I’m knockin’ on heaven’s door

All Along The Watchtower

There must be some kind of way outta here
Said the joker to the thief
There’s too much confusion
I can’t get no relief

Blowin’ In The Wind

How many roads must a man walk down
Before you call him a man?
Yes, ’n’ how many seas must a white dove sail
Before she sleeps in the sand?

Come forth and speak to me
Raise me up and don’t let me fall
