"I feel like it's always raining in our songs, that bittersweetness. . . . We surrender too easily to the blues. We, if we're not careful, are bleeding all over the world."

The Joshua Tree added to Grammy Hall of Fame

@U2, December 04, 2013
By: Matt McGee

 

U2's iconic The Joshua Tree album has been added to the Grammy Hall of Fame. It's one of more than two dozen albums and singles in the class of 2014 that will be displayed at the Grammy museum in Los Angeles. It's the first U2 recording to be added.

The Grammy museum adds new recordings to its museum annually. The announcement explains how and why recordings are chosen:

This latest round of inducted recordings continues to highlight diversity and recording excellence, and acknowledges both singles and album recordings of all genres at least 25 years old that exhibit qualitative or historical significance. Recordings are reviewed annually by a special member committee comprised of eminent and knowledgeable professionals from all branches of the recording arts, with final approval by The Recording Academy's National Board of Trustees.

The Grammy Hall of Fame now has a total of 960 recordings. The full list is available on the Grammy website.
