A very early U2 song, the band performed "Another Time, Another Place" at their shows in 1979 and released it on their debut album, Boy, in 1980. The song finds Bono waking up naked and afraid, and very much alone. He years for another time, another place, where he can be with the one he loves.
Bono mumbles something incomprehensible near the end that sounds like it's in another language, possible one he made up.
On the album cover is a photo of 7-year-old Peter Rowen, whose image appeared on a number of U2 releases early on. The American version of the album used an alternate cover with a black-and-white photo of the band.

Mickey D. from Fremont, CaTowards the middle (near the end), the real lyrics go like...
"...Yeah-ya-yi, yeah-yeah-hah She's a beauty, Hallie Yes we all look down, he's been had Love's what she's been holding..."
Rudi from Uk, EnglandI dont think it's Gaelic - I think it's German
Katie from Memphis, TnTowards the middle (near the end) of the song, Bono speaks in Gaelic. I don't believe a translation has ever been done. Also, when performing the song live, Bono would just improvise this part (in English).
Carla Thomas became the first woman to achieve a Top 10 hit on the Hot 100 with a song she wrote herself when "Gee Whiz (Look At His Eyes)" reached the chart's top tier in 1961. Thomas was just 16-years-old when she penned it.
