MLK & U2


Too good not to simply quote in full. From Biblische Ausbildung: U2 and Martin Luther King

“Pride (In the Name of Love)” is the second song on U2’s 1984 album, The Unforgettable Fire, and was released as the album’s first single. Written about Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., it is one of the band’s most recognized songs. In this YouTube video, the song is accompanied by an artist sketching MLK in black ink.

The Lyrics are as follows:

One man come in the name of love
One man come and go.
One man come he to justify
One man to overthrow.

One man caught on a barbed wir
