Actually, it is a very catchy little tune, isn't it?

Even though one of his resolutions for 2021 was not to listen to any U2 songs, music fan Gary Johnson has already broken that one rule.

'I am a huge fan of music. Enya is a favourite, and the more raucous sound of the New Seekers is great, but I listened to too much U2 last year, and it induced in me a growing sense of anxiety and nausea, so I thought that I would stop listening to it. If Bono, The Edge, Larry and Adam read this, it is nothing personal, but then Fritz Radio played 'New Year's Day', and I thought, 'damn, why?' I almost phoned the station to give them a piece of my mind, but they charge £2.99 a minute, so I didn't bother.'

Gary is now sticking to his other resolutions of drinking less, and not thinking about his boss at weekends.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
