October is the second album by Irish rock band U2, released in 1981. October is considered by many to be U2's weakest album; many critics find its lyrics heavy-handed and the band's performances bland.
"October" is the seventh and title track from U2's 1981 album, October. It is a departure from U2's classic sound, as it is a quiet, almost instrumental piece. It was included as a hidden track on The Best of 1980-1990 compilation.
