I was hugely disappointed with this song when I bought the single. I was looking forward to a rare Proper B-Side in the vein of Summer Rain, Always etc, and this... wasn't... anything, really. It's just a bit crap all-in-all (by U2 standards, of course). :/  The lyrics are for the most part unimaginative and clichéd. Musically it's a bit of a tuneless racket in places. What bothers me most is Bono's vocals are *horribly* strained - a dead giveaway that it's a leftover from the ATYCLB era, because his voice has improved amazingly since then. And this limp effort seems even worse when it's paired up with Vertigo, which made such a powerful and exciting single - the contrast is embarrassing, frankly.

I suppose I should be grateful that we got an original song at all, and not just another batch of dodgy remixes. Unfortunately it's so unmemorable that I'd pretty much forgotten it existed until now!

It's alright to sing along with though. Just thought I should try and say something positive about it. :p

(It probably doesn't help that I find the idea "It won't be long till the summer comes" totally depressing - I hate summer!)
