The Headphone Devotionals blog has emerged from a paper that I presented at the second U2 Conference in Cleveland, Ohio. More background has been published in essay form at U2interference.com.
U2 (and/or other artists) own the lyrics cited and music streamed here.
I strongly encourage all listeners to support music (and the artists that make it) in a monetary manner, by buying records, official merchandise, and concert tickets.
If you are U2 or the legal owner of any of the songs found here or are legally authorized to act on U2's or an artist's behalf, please contact us with any questions or concerns at professor-dot-andy-dot-smith-AT-gmail-dot-com. We will gladly take down any music in response to a legitimate query to that effect.
