I suppose you either love this song or hate it.

Not really... I don't love it, but I like it. *g*
The first half of Pop, I adored from the first listen. The last three tracks also caught up quickly, and Gone was OK, though it's never been a personal favourite of mine. The only tracks that took *ages* to grow on me were Miami and The Playboy Mansion. I thought Miami sounded completely weird, and not in a good way - no emotion of any description, it barely had a tune, and the lyrics were just odd. There was something cold and hollow about it.
I got there in the end with it, though. It's not one of their finest efforts but I quite like it now - it's fun to sing along with.

Favourite line: "Baby's always attracted to the things she's afraid of". I can so totally relate to that!

Other favourite bits include: the way the guitar picks up for the "car chase" section, the contrast of the slow and sexy bridge (gotta love the "Getting hot in a photo booth" and "We could make something beautiful..." lines), the bit where Bono finally starts screaming "MIAMI!!!", and the "Shake! Shake down" bit at the end.

I've no idea what the point of this song is. But it's got a good bassline, it's fairly catchy, and it's not as bad as some people make it out to be. Worth persevering with.
