Stuck in a Moment

I feel like I need to say this....

Post-2000 SIAM has one of the if not the most simple yet deeply felt and resonating lyrics written by Bono. The magnificently coherent and to the point lyrics drives the song more than the music. You can't say that about too many U2 songs. I fall deeply in love with the song each time I hear it due to its lyrics.

And yet they made me hate it by completely neutering it live with that dreadful acoustic version..

I agree with you about the acoustic version. But the Elevation tour version was fantastic.

SIAM was just uploaded to U2's Vevo this week. Anyone know where it was from?

The album version would have been vastly improved by real horns instead of whatever canned crap they wound up using.

I dig it. Not the song I listen to the most, but I think the lyrics are just fine.

I agree with you, lyrically it is one of U2s best songs. The melody, while decent(I typed this without realizing the pun, so I'm leaving this in my post ), doesn't come close to matching the level that the lyrics reach. I still rank this as one of my top 40 U2 songs and do enjoy listening to it still to this day.

This is pretty much the case for me with any acoustic version they do

The synth brass was downright Phil Collins-esque.

Was that a comment a joke or something? If it was I'd like to add a drum fill for that.

SIAM is a great tune. Pure, honest, great melody. No bullshit, world-saving pomposity. No chiming guitars or other sonic theater. It will stand the test of time long after U2 are retired.

Couldn't agree more Gman.

The album version is great.
