Love it. It's camp, it's tongue in cheek, it's perfect.

I've heard both the original album version and the 2000 remix for the 'Best of' compilations--I like the album version better. Over the top but really fun!

The "Best of" revamp of the song blows chunks. How could you leave out the "Boom-cha"s??! Love the song. Bassy and danceable, and unexpected.

Agreed. It's like the neutered version. "Boom-cha's"=the pelvic thrusts in the video. I thought the "Irish Macarena" was hysterical!

The Howie B./Hairy B. remix of the song is hilarious as well.

I love both versions. Sometimes I need the quietness of the "Best of" version and sometimes I really need a "boom-cha!" to sing along to.

Either way, its a great song and THE reason I bought Pop before Atchung Baby.
(I now have both, so don't smack me.)

I have this song on my mp3 player and I admit, I dance to it on my way to school- if no one is around.

This song is definetly on my short list of favorite U2 songs EVER. The beat is probably one of the best rhythms for any U2 song ever, too. The production on this song is incredible. I have to say, Pop as a whole is an amazing hodgepodge of sonic landscape. It's also amazing what hidden tracks you hear in those songs when you're under the influence of... well... nevermind. I mean, I bet you could. kthxbye
