New Year’s Day (U2)
All is quiet on New Year’s Day
A world in white gets underway
The lead single from U2’s third studio album War is arguably their “breakthrough” single since it saw them hit most major charts internationally, including – for the first time – the US Hot 100. The lyrics were inspired by the Polish Solidarity movement.
Fun fact: True to its title the song was released on 1 January 1983.
