Songs of Experience (Deluxe Edition) by U2 on Apple Music (Apple Music) Listen to songs from the album Songs of Experience (Deluxe Edition), including "Love Is All We Have Left", "Lights of Home", "You're the Best Thing About Me", and many more. [exif id="33534"] I love this album. But I'm biased. I've been a U2 fanboy since 1986. U2's music is like listening to my favourite childhood lullaby. I get calm and feel safe. You're the best thing about me The best thing that ever happened a boy You're the best thing about me I'm the kind of trouble that you enjoy You're the best thing about me The best things are easy to destroy You're the best thing about me The best thing about me 40.393335-74.6357994Share:TwitterEmailLike this:Like Loading...

Your h-entries should have, at minimum, the following properties:

  • e-content — the main content of the post
  • p-name — if your post has a name, use this classname. Otherwise, (if for example the post is a note), either leave it off or apply to the same element as e-.
  • dt-published — the datetime the post was published at, in ISO8601 format, with a timezone
  • u-url — the canonical URL of the post, especially important on pages listing multiple posts

It’s a common convention for the published datetime to be a link to the post itself, but they can be separate if you want.

There should also be some way to discover the author of the post — either link to your homepage (which should have your h-card on it) from anywhere within the body of the page with rel=author, or optionally embed a p-author h-card in the h-entry.

The web is an expressive medium, and as such there are many other properties which you can add to your posts. Check out the h-entry documentation for a full list.
