LOVE LOVE LOVE this song. I especially love playing bass to it. The perfect start to an album like Unforgettable Fire, IMO. I also love how chaotic the guitar part is... astonishing.

Along with "40," this is my favourite U2 song. :)

Well, I have rectified it, but it's a bit of a letdown. The instrumentation is really great and catchy and flowing, but the lyrics feel a bit disjointed, like a nonsense poem. The rhythm section particularly stands out.

Really good song. I can't think of much to say about it (probably because I'm really tired!), but yeah... it's great. Again with the passionate vocals and driving energy. I don't listen to it very often, but I probably should do.

Absolutely love the song and I think it's proof this band was going to fucking fly.

It's such a good song, especially for the first track of an album. I love the rhythm with the melody.

"Oh come away, oh come away, oh come, oh come away say I"

UF is a masterpiece album. So much more they could utilize besides Bad or Pride

One of my favorite U2 songs. Although, to be honest, I prefer the "live" version from Wide Awake In America.

(I use "live" in quotation marks because I think I read somewhere that it was done at a soundcheck or something, and the audience noise was added in later? Can anyone confirm?)
