Staring at the Sun" is a song by Irish rock band U2. It is the fifth track on their 1997 album, Pop, and was released as its second single on 15 April 1997. It peaked at number three on the UK Singles Chart, number one in Canada and on the US Modern Rock Tracks chart, number two on the US Mainstream Rock Tracks chart, and number 26 on the Billboard Hot 100. It also reached the top 10 in Finland, Ireland, New Zealand and Norway.

Staring At The Sun" as written by and Dave Evans Adam Clayton. The reason why the POP album wasa failure was not because it didn't produce the best of the hits ever, but for severa other reasons the band claims it to be their falure: -U2 rushed to complete the album rather then take the time to make it "perfect" as they would have liked to -They had to deal with the costs. of ZOO TV -Going into the tour they did not even know how to play the songs live because there was so much done with technology in the studio that it would be very dificult to produce the sound they had on the album

Staring at the Sun (Live in 1998). U2 released The Fly as the first single form Achtung Baby, knowing they had an ace in the hole with One. They thought they had another One on deck with Staring at the Sun, but when it came out as the second single it crapped out at Number 26 on the . Hot 100. The song totally fell apart on the opening night of the tour, and before long the band stripped it down to just Bono and the Edge on twin acoustic guitars. This take soars in a way the album version didn’t. Had they had a little more time they might have presented it this way on the album  . It was one of the best moments of the night even if most people in the arena probably didn’t know the song.

Staring at the Sun was the second single from the Pop album. Although originally advertised for an April 7/8 release, it was pushed back a week to April 14/15. Unlike most of the other singles from Pop, there was not a unique single version of the song issued. For the 7-inch and two-track CD and cassette releases (all of which featured a four-panel grid on the sleeve with different coloured photos of Adam Clayton’s head), the album version of Staring at the Sun was the A-side with a non-album track, North and South of the River, as the B-side

The Brothers In Rhythm Remixes of the U2 track "Staring At The Sun" started life as a bootleg, made of a live version from a U2 concert. When the band got to hear the mixes, they decided to give approval for a promo only release. So unfortunately the mixes never got a full / official release. This 12" vinyl got released in December 2002 to promote U2's "Best Of 1990-2000" compilation. So this vinyl is a must have for real U2 fans! :)
