This is one of my favorite songs on the album. So joyful and uplifting, it just makes me feel so jubilant at the end.

It also reminds me of one of the 2006 beach clips. I forgot which one exactly, but does anyone else feel the same way?

Yep the "All my Life" clip. I had been thinking the same thing.

Oh, yeah! Now that you mention it, it kinda does.

Not the right venue BUT, every appreciation thread should start with the lyrics. . . Good job!

In any case, if this is not the next single, I will shit my pants and sell it on eBay!

Just heard it on the radio. Thought it sounded terrific and I think it would play well to the masses. I wouldn't be surprised if this became a single

I love listening to this while driving, top volume, windows open. I defy anyone, anyone, to do so and not just smile from ear to ear! This is a feel good song, just bursting out all over with joy.
"do you hear me? I'll be shoutin', we're gonna make it all the way to the light"

you could just about sum up what u2 means to me in that one line, right there.

ps there is a ding sound buried in this song that is the exact sound my car makes when a warning light comes on. It gets me every time. Same sound is in 4 other songs on the album!

I like it- I think it suffers from a bad title (why not just leave it at Crazy Tonight - I think it works as a lyric more than as a title). Seems to be the most personal Bono song on the album...

Quick Initial Review

I really love the melody here and the way he sings the lyrics. Initially I thought it was their worst song title ever, even worse than LAPOE but I'm not going to harp on that because the music is really really pretty here. And the line "every beauty needs to go out with an idiot" never fails to make me laugh. The intro with that chord sequence reminds me of Journey a little bit. lol. But overall, a nice simple song that would perhaps have fit on ATYCLB. 7/10

It was the one song that initially did nothing for me. But it's growing a little...especially the "baby baby baby" part. It doesn't help that those repetitive few notes throughout the song sound like Abba.

The falsetto squeaks will take time to get used to...

I shouldn't post in this appreciation thread, but I do, because the song has grown on me. I still don't like the falsetto, but I like most of what's coming afterwards. My favourite part is: How can you stand next to the truth and not see it.

Also, "it's not a hill it's a mountain" his voice is completely shot.

I think I'm loving it.
Me too - when I first heard it I thought...oh no, why this cheese?

Then I started to like it now I totally love it - even the falsetto - I initially hated it too but am used to it now and it's seems normal now.
