The first song/video selection is Beautiful Day by U2. The reasons for this choice are:
- I love U2 (minus Bono's political views - despite his good intentions).
- I love this song.
- I love Persian rugs.
- I really love airplanes.
- It's my blog. I can do what I want.
- This song is very optimistic which is the feeling I want to convey in this blog.
- The lyrics are easy to remember.
