U2 releases "I Will Follow" single
"I Will Follow" is the opening track from U2's debut album, Boy.
The song was released as a single, and has since become a fan favorite live; it is the only song U2 has performed on every tour since they released their first album. It was U2's first music video. It was directed by Meiert Avis in Dublin, Ireland. It appeared on both the compilation album and video collection The Best of 1980-1990. Along with the songs "Silver Lining" (prototype of "11 O'clock Tick Tock"), "I Will Follow" and "Tomorrow", Bono wrote the lyrics in tribute to his mother who died when he was 14.
