2000 TOP 100 HITS – #9
U2 – Beautiful Day – 86 522 000
The lead single of All That You Can’t Leave Behind features much better than Elevation or Stuck in a Moment You Can’t Get Out Of both way down in this Top 100. An incredible comeback to form after two less successful albums during the 90s, Beautiful Day is possibly the main reason of early 2000s U2 massive tours, huge album sales and extensive winnings at Grammy ceremonies. This is the kind of tracks that put back a positive eye on an entire catalog and convince labels in supporting you to the limit. Who said a popular artist can’t record a huge hit after turning 40?
