Mysterious Ways

In 1991, U2 released the album Achtung Baby, which would become highly acclaimed among critics and fans alike, while also becoming the band’s second-highest selling album, behind only 1987’s The Joshua Tree.  Exactly 20 years ago today, the first hit off the album, “Mysterious Ways,” peaked at number 9 on Billboard‘s Hot 100 chart.  Though it was the first hit off the album, “Mysterious Ways” was actually the second single to be released, following “The Fly,” which didn’t take off as a single and only peaked at number 61.  “Mysterious Ways” was also the biggest hit from Achtung Baby, barely beating out its successor, “One,” which would peak at number 10 a little less than four months later.
