To the Editors:
U2 is the most important band in the world ((MUSIC, April 27)). With their songs, these musicians convey a sense of justice and evoke a wholesome feeling in the hearts and minds of their listeners.
Edward J. Barfield
The music of U2 embodies a trend that differs markedly from the mood of the songs of the 1960s. Although philanthropy remains the general theme of the lyrics, the composers have abandoned their anti-Establishment tone and given way to a more humanitarian sentiment. Hunger, war and apathy are out; food, peace and empathy are in.
