Iconic Video

7 Mar 201335

'I never had to push my way into a U2 show, that was a bit of a moment.' (Bono)

Written and recorded during the Abbey Road sessions in London in 2006, Window in the Skies  was one of two new tracks on the 'U218 Singles' compilation.

As well as becoming a Top 5 hit, the video, directed by Gary Koepke, was touched with genius. A dazzling edit brings together a stellar cast of rock'n'roll icons: Elvis Presley to Marvin Gaye, Patti Smith to Jimi Hendrix, Billie Holiday to Iggy Pop. Bono, Edge, Larry and Adam are lost in the audience. The Washington Post called it 'a triumph of postmodern reconstruction.'

If you missed the video, take another look. Then tell us in the comments below your all-time top three videos for a U2 single.
