You know you love this song. Even if you don't, you should. It's a club beat, meant perfectly for a discotheque. The answer to Pop Music.
Even the video is overly entertaining. U2 in a disco ball. Love it! And then there's the whole Village People Boom Cha thing. Rewind. Re-watch.
Although the new mix found in "The Best of 1990-2000" is better in many ways, it's missing that BOOM-CHA! I usually sing it in to the mix because I miss it so much.
Edge gets "the award" in this song for that riff. That unmistakable "na na na na, na na na na, na na na na, na na na!" that makes the song infectious and dancable too.
Sure it doesn't sound like regular, everyday rockable U2, but it's got that special something that makes me wish someone, anyone would play this the next time I went clubbing.

Favorite Lyrics:
Looking for the one
But you know you're somewhere else instead.
You want to be the song
The song that you hear in your head


Repetitive, and I love it.

You can reach, but you can't grab it.
You can't hold it, control it
You can't bag it.

You can push, but you can't direct it
Circulate, regulate, oh no
You cannot connect it - love.

You know you're chewing bubble gum
You know what that is but you still want some.
You just can't get enough of that lovey-dovey stuff

You get confused, but you know it
Yeah, you hurt for it, work for it, love
You don't always show it - love.

Let go, let's go, discothèque.
Go, go, let go, discothèque.

Looking for the one
But you know you're somewhere else instead.
You want to be the song
The song that you hear in your head
Love, love, love, love.

It's not a trick, you can't learn it
It's the way that you don't pay that's okay
'Cause you can't earn it - love

You know you're chewing bubble gum
You know what that is
But you still want some
You just can't get enough of that lovey-dovey stuff

Let go, let's go, discothèque.
Go, go, go, go, discothèque.

Looking for the one
But you know you're somewhere else instead.
You want to be the song
The song that you hear in your head
Love, love, love.

But you take what you can get
'Cause it's all that you can find.
Oh you know there's something more
But tonight, tonight, tonight.
Boom cha, boom cha, discothèque.


Who put a cowbell there?! I love it!
XD

I always dance to it when I'm listening to it in my car. :X
The video's great too...they all look so uncomfortable trying to dance, especially Larry.

This song has a very special place in my heart. I remember seeing it for the first time and about falling off my seat when I saw them dressed as the Village People! And poor Larry just looks a bit silly in that cowboy get up. And who doesn't like Edge in leather?

Discotheque is singlehandedly what got me into U2. I loved that song from the second I heard it and saw it on MTV. WOW... what a revelation in my life. Great song!

I think we can tell from my icon that I love this song, especially the video. There's nothing quite like campy U2. It's just such a fun song. =D

I love that animation as well!

This video is first favorite, followed a close second by "Even Better Than The Real Thing" solely for gratuitous Bono crotch gyrating. ;)

I actually prefer the new mix done on the Best Of...but I do miss the BoomCha's. When I first saw the video, I was in stitches. The dancing part was priceless. Especially when it looked like Larry would rather be anywhere else but there.

Love your animation as well! The beat is fabulous and great to blast in the car. The video is the best though... I need to replace my Best of 1990-2000 DVD since it died this past weekend. :( First thing to do is watch this video and "Stay."

Plus listening to the director's commentary about the band's dancing is priceless plus Larry's not wanting to be there, Adam being totally off the beat, and Bono and Edge hamming it up... great video!

Wow, I can't believe anyone likes the new mix on the Best Of. It's sacrilege.

YAY for Discotheque! I get it stuck in my head (yes, thanks for that :p) and it never leaves, it's ace! I like both versions, the original and the Best Of one, there's a place for both! Hehe you've made me want to put it on now, damn you!
