Now he sings
"... There is no You, its only me... There is no U , its only me!
Me... me... me and the edge!

There is no U, its only meeeee... There is no U , its only meeeee!
Me... me... meeeee and the Eeeeedge! "

It seems he is still doing promo work with the Edge only.
Larry and Adam went on vacation (gain)

I still can't get behind this song. I love how propulsive the opening feels, and Edge's guitar tone is the most interesting sound I've heard from him in years.

But the stop-and-start drum pattern that shows up in the verses and then permeates the choruses ruins the song's momentum for me. And the big chorus full of chiming guitar and Bono's whiny shouting tone bores me. The band on autopilot. Mostly I think Larry needs to break out of his usual drumming patterns, which I'm not sure how to characterize - but I know em when I hear em

I like the song a lot. The problem of it is it doesn´t know what it wants to be. Is it fast temp retro punk as the verses and chorus hint? Or is it a ballad as Edge´s sliding guitar riff and the outro There is no them points out?

If this was released on The Joshua Tree, it'd be universally considered the greatest song ever written, not even debatable.

Thanks but I'll let you know when something is non-debatable.

I was wondering when you'd get to making use of that. I just thought for sure it would be me.

I actually love 'there is no them, it's only me, it's only us.' It's a pretty great synopsis of the band, IMO.

Umm...wtf?

That section doesn't point to being a ballad.

Great point, reminds me of other classic U2 ballads such as Sunday Bloody Sunday, Bullet, and The Fly. I don't know what these other people have been hearing, I hear a lot of The First Time and WOWY in this song.

It's still my favourite of the new songs, save for The Troubles maybe.

I love it so much, it's everything I ever wanted from them. Dumbfounded they didn't put it on the album, but as long as they play it live, I'll be okay.
