to the open arms of the sea

it seems to me that more than any other cover, i've heard most people say they hate U2's version of unchained melody. (the recorded one, the b-side; not live.) it's always shocked me, really, cos i love it. i wonder if it's cos most were attached to (or just used to) the original, or if they just think it's crap? i never had a tie with the original. it was always just... there. i dunno. but when i heard U2's, i suddenly understood it. the way bono sings it makes the lyrics stand out, makes the emotion of it much more apparent. there is so much ache. i don't feel that from any other version.

the overall flow of it... the guitar rolling in persistent waves, the bass and the movement it brings... just renders me speechless.


what do you guys think of it? and why?
