U2 - A Celebration


On this date in 1982, U2 released its seventh single, "A Celebration". It was backed by "Trash, Trampoline And The Party Girl". Neither side appeared on a regular album. A second version had "Fire" as the B side, a track from their second album, October. The single reached the #47 spot on the U.K. singles chart. The new wave band turned mainstream rock band from Dublin, Ireland is, as we all know, still going strong.
