Chicago trip / Bono solo tracks
Because I'm feeling particularly narcissistic at the moment, I'm going to share some more of my Chicago pics from the weekend before getting on to the music today.

It was a good weekend. Hope yours was as well.
As for musical offerings today, I've been inspired by those U2 contract demos to offer some related Bono material. Below are a number of tracks that Bono has released on compilations, soundtracks, or others' albums without his bandmates. Many are fun collaborations with other larger-than-life musical icons.
Bono - Hallelujah 95 [Leonard Cohen cover]
Bono - Save the Children [Marvin Gaye cover]
Bono - Can't Help Falling in Love [Elvis Presley cover]
Bono, Quincy Jones, Ray Charles, Stevie Wonder - Let the Good Times Roll [Louis Jordan cover; Hendrix, others]
Bono, Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Tom Petty, Carl Perkins - Give Me Back My Job [Carl Perkins cover]
Did you know that Bono's real name is Paul David Hewson? If you didn't, now you do.
If you just can't get enough of him, go visit Bono Online.
