“I Don’t Live in Irishtown”

By on June 16, 2007 in The Things You Learn with 2 Comments

While re-reading the Rolling Stone Files book a while back, I came across the big Christopher Connelly article that accompanied the “Band of the ’80s” issue in 1985.

Near the end of the article, Connelly’s interviewing Bono — this is in November ’84 — and Bono mentions that he’s just written a new song called “I Don’t Live in Irishtown.”

“It’s about a man who isn’t Protestant or Catholic, English or Irish.”

Wonder what ever became of that one….

    Don’t you think “I Don’t Live in Irishtown”, mentionned in November ’84, could have evolved in God Part II, which made it to Rattle and Hum?
