U2 and Elvis Costello

Hey there Wirelings,

I picked up a copy of Elvis Costello's "Spike" album for only $1.06
today (what a deal!) and looking it over I started wondering: have U2
ever mentioned whether they were influence by E.C. in any way? The
reason I thought of it (aside from the fact that they're both Irish
and T-Bone Burnett produced "Spike") was that the lyrics to
"Satellite" reminded me a teeny bit of "Babyface," with the guy
watching the girl on TV in a virtual affair kind of way. I'll have to
root through all my E.C. stuff and see if I can find any other
connections, it's an interesting subject for study. (Said the
perpetually boring college student.)

Well, y'all have a gee-golly wonderful day now, dontcha know!
