Throwback Thursday: U2 – “Stuck in a Moment That You Can’t Get out Of”
I have a love/hate relationship with U2. On one end, they have quite a few songs that I love, but on the other, they’re the holders of countless Grammys that they don’t deserve. Ah well. I guess my anger is better directed at the trash-ass voting members of the Recording Academy.
“Stuck in a Moment” was written as a fictional conversation between lead singer Bono and Michael Hutchence of INXS, who committed suicide in 1997. I was today years old when I learned that little factoid, but now that I know, it makes the song that much more special.
The song peaked at No. 52 on the Billboard Hot 100, but it was a lot more successful outside of the US. It also won a Grammy for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal. Check it out below.
