I find it weird that so many people have described the song as creepy, I've never got that vibe from it!  Bono's baby voice prevents it from ever taking on that quality. *g*  I do think it's impressively cat-like, though, with its prowling pace and hissing background vocals. Clever how they did that.

The chorus is my favourite part, it's so catchy and I love the "She-caaaattt" bits. Infinitely superior to The Bravery's cover, which shockingly omitted that part!

I've always quite liked the song on the album, but I was shocked when they stuck it in the setlist for the tour - there are plenty of upbeat numbers from Boy which I think would make far better choices for a gig. So I was glad they didn't play it at the Twickenham shows (we got I Will Follow and The Electric Co instead). Although I must admit part of me was curious to see Bono crawling like a cat - maybe that'll be on the Chicago DVD?!

I've never seen the song as sinister either, suprised to see so many people do.
This has been my fav U2 song....since I heard it I think. It is inseperable from Into the Heart, as the rifts are threaded through both. What gets me is the linkage between the two songs, it speaks to me in a way that no other song does. Now I LOVE a ton of other songs, but this one has a special place in my heat.

Also where I picked up my appreciation for the Edge. :D
