U2 are an Irish rock band from Dublin, with Bono as the lead singer and rhythm guitarist; The Edge on lead guitar, keyboards, and backing vocal; Adam Clayton on bass guitar; and Larry Mullen Jr. on drums and percussion. The band chose the name "U2" for its ambiguity and open-ended interpretations, since the letter "U" is pronounced just like the word "you," and "2" can be interpreted as "two" or "too." Since their formation, U2 have developed and maintained a distinctly recognizable sound, with emphasis on melodic instrumentals and expressive, larger-than-life vocals. They are also known for their involvement in political and social causes.

Listen to U2's “You're the Best Thing About Me.” Rolling Stone magazine defines the song as “a joyous ear-worm about romantic dissatisfaction.” The video is set in New York City.
