I'm currently feelin: giggly giggly
I'm currently hearin: U2 - With Or Without You

Another "out of curiosity" question.

How many of you think WOWY is just the greatest song ever and feel perfectly content listening to it in repeat over, and over, and over?




...or am I the only one?

Once I put my headphones on and pushed them against my ears while paying attention to every detail to "With Or Without You" and Bono's voice I started to cry. That song really is heart wrenching.

I must be one of a few that hopes WOWY isn't played on the tour. Bono murdered that song most nights on Elevation. :-/

Oh, I adore With Or Without You. I think it's U2's best song. Ever. I haven't listened to it in a while (heh, make that one day...) so I think I'll put it on again. :D

So have you been listening to it since the last time you posted about it? ;)

Really, though, WOWY is a beautiful, beautiful song that has given me many beautiful, beautiful moments. ♥

LOL

Yes actually, I have. Once I listened to it in repeat right when i got to work and it just played the whole day untiL i left at 5. then when i got home I let it play quietly in the background while I cooked dinner, etc.

It's very theraputic.

I have been playing the April 22, 1987 (Joshua Tree tour) version of that song for days on end. And then this morning I had an urge to watch their performance of that on the Elevation DVD. The first time I heard that song it was one of those what-were-you-doing-when-it-happened moments. I will always adore that song (live and in the studio). :)

Oh, yeah. One of the best songs ever recorded, period. I was really confused about things in my life the other day on the ride to work, and I was listen to Best of 1980-1990. When WOWY came on, I blasted it, singing along at the top of my lungs, and almost completely broke down crying. I felt like something was purged out of me. Things have been a lot clearer since then.

And such is the power of U2 in my life. :)

Haha, me too... I love that song!!!! I used to sleep to it in college.. when I'd wake up in the morning it would still be playing (although my headphones were usually not still on my head)

Honestly, I'm kind of tired of it. It reminds me of too many ex girlfriends I'd rather forget.

It's still in my top 10 U2 songs...

I agree with others that have stated that they shouldn't play it live anymore... it's outlived it's shelf life in concert.
