Great song. My only complaint is Bono's falsetto. He clearly can do it better (as shown in some of the other new songs). Why didn't they redub his falsetto parts?

I thought it fit the song. It was almost funny, which I think is the way the song as a whole feels... joyful pop, borderline hilarious in its jubilation.

Wow. Its amazing how much people's opinions differ! My sentiments are almost the exact opposite of this...

I have ranked Crazy Tonight as tied with Unknown Caller as the best record on the album. I believe, it also has the best riff on the album. It is also the song I was most shocked by, as somehow I had formed a preconception in my mind that it would be the one song I hated.

However, I do agree with you about that one song that ruins the album, and it is.... BOOTS! I have completely removed Boots from the albums playlist, as it is not only the single worst song U2 have ever recorded, it may very well be one of the worst songs ever recorded by a well recognized band.

Releasing boots as the first single, was imo, incredibly stupid. My local alt rock radio station played it a couple times when it was released and the reception was understandably poor. The audience and the DJs weren't mean; they seem to have respect for u2, but all thought the song was terrible. Discussion on whether u2 'still have it', etc...

However, that said, I don't think u2 should have any concern for trying to get radio play for their singles this album. Its not a real radio friendly album.

Crazy Tonight sounds like the theme tune to a bad mid-western America family comedy drama (like Party of Five) or even worse, a movie, any movie, starring Meg Ryan.

Get On Your Boots cannot come quick enough, and now has gone from being 6 out of 10, to 8 out of 10, simply because it rescues the album from Crazy Tonight.

Making 'Crazy' the next single would be career suicide for U2. It will not chart and will be abandonded by commercial radio, never to be played again, killing what should be a great album.

Especially the "Baby baby baby" part. One of my favorite moments on the album! Just hits you like a freight train. Gives me a shiver up my spine.

This one floored me- I was convinced, by the reviews, I was going to despise this. Instead, it jumps on the record...

I love this track. So uplifting. I prefer Bono's imperfect falsetto, it makes the track seem human.
