U2 Lyric Is Britain's Number One

U2 have written Britain's favourite pop lyric - beating rival rockers BOB DYLAN, BOB MARLEY, THE BEATLES and DAVID BOWIE in a new poll. The line, "One life, with each other, sisters, brothers," appears in the song ONE, from the Irish band's 1992 album ACHTUNG BABY. HOW SOON IS NOW? by THE SMITHS came second and NIRVANA's SMELLS LIKE TEEN SPIRIT came third in the poll by VH1. A shortlist was chosen by 100 music industry figures, including JON BON JOVI and NOEL GALLAGHER - fans then voted for their favourite. The U2 song is currently back in the charts, with a re-released version starring the vocals of MARY J BLIGE alongside frontman BONO.

as a U2 fan i couldn't be prouder. it's an extremely intimate song to me . . . . dealing with frustration in love and the value of commitment of sticking together in spite of differences. i'm thinking of so many versions of it from the Pavarotti Benefit for the Children of Bosnia to Johnny Cash, to seeing Bono and Mary performing it together in Las Vegas, to every time it rolls around in my ipod. I can't hear enough of the ONE promotion Bono gives prior to singing this song in concert. means the world to me, and to africa. thank you, sammi

This song is one of my favourites, in this world of greed and trying to be better than everyone else by way of wealth or possessions, it points out our state of fragility as humans, we have one life, live together, as we all need each other. I know i want this song played at my funeral, just says it all really.
