After 19 months of my blog, U2 finally get their first appearance. It’s with this this UK#6 and US#1.
It was the highest new entry on the chart, at #13 on this day in the 80s, 31st May 1987. It was their 5th top ten hit of 33 they have had in total since ’83. They have had 7 #1s in the UK, between ’88 and ’05.
In the US, this was their 2nd and last #1, which both came in ’87.
In their native Ireland, this was their 3rd of 21 #1s so far.
