U2 is an Irish band that has made a lot of success for many years playing great songs. I believe you have heard of Bono (lead vocals) who is one of the most popular in the entire world. U2 has influenced lots of generations with an amazing alternative rock and their lyrics that talk about sociopolitical themes. Sunday Bloody Sunday – U2 is one of their main success. Definitely, listening to songs is one of the best ways of learning English.

You need to take notes of the most important words and expressions and make sentences using them. They are good strategies for learning English. Why don’t you start right now improving your vocabulary? If you have any question do not hesitate to contact me.

Another good hin is to choose singers from different countries – U2 is an Irish group, so you should try an American singer, Canadian too and so on. Another strategy is listening to man or woman too. As you know each person has a different accent and you should pay attention to their pronunciations. No matter if you like rock, romantic, pop, or heavy metal, each song has its value and you will always learn new words.

  • The advantages of listening to songs are:
  • You will enjoy listening several times.
  • You will learn new words and expressions and even slangs.
  • You will understand the lyrics.

One aspect to be considered about lyrics – many of the songs have ‘no sense’ and some of them sound ‘weird’ but you have to understand that singers use their feelings and emotions in their songs. Another important detail: never translate them to your language – you know how hard it is to understand proverbs, slangs, and so on. If you are really a fan of your favorite band or singer you will understand what they want to say! Have fun!

Sunday Bloody Sunday - U2

Sunday Bloody Sunday – U2

I can’t believe the news today
I can’t close my eyes, make them go away

How long?
How long must we sing this song?
How long
How long?
Tonight we can be as one
Tonight

Broken bottles under children’s feet
And bodies strewn across a dead end street
But I won’t heed the battle call
It puts my back up, puts my back up
Against the wall!

Sunday bloody sunday
Sunday bloody sunday
Sunday bloody sunday

And the battles just begun
There’s many lost
But tell me who has won?
The trenches dug within our hearts
And mothers, children, brothers, sisters torn apart

Sunday bloody sunday
Sunday bloody sunday

How long?
How long must we sing this song?
How long
How long?
Cause tonight we can be as one
Tonight

Tonight
Tonight
Tonight
Tonight

Wipe the tears of your eyes
Wipe your tears away
Wipe your tears away
Wipe bloodshot eyes

Sunday bloody sunday
Sunday bloody sunday
Sunday bloody sunday
Sunday bloody sunday
Sunday bloody sunday
Sunday bloody sunday

And it’s true we are immune
When fact is fiction and Tv is reality
And today the millions cry
We eat and drink while tomorrow they die
The real battle just begun
To claim the victory Jesus won
On a sunday, bloody sunday

Sunday bloody sunday
Sunday bloody sunday
Sunday bloody sunday
Sunday bloody sunday
Sunday bloody sunday
