Yeah I put "soul in its strip tease" in the other thread and then said "now I'm going to post in the 5 dumbest lyrics thread." but I can see Bono doing that. I just don't like it.

I think I just prefer the 'fast, upbeat, rock out' type songs overall.

Is 'Elevation' a better song?

Nice little song but ultimately disposable, I think.

Unfortunately, it's true.

'better'? Not necessarily.. but as far as my personal preference goes, it may be a crappy song lyrically, but musically that's what I enjoy.

Is that ok??

It is indeed "soul in its strip tease". I actually really like that line.

Why so defensive?! The eyebrow smiley was to show I was pondering which song you'd think was better! I was actually being serious. Sheesh! Of course it's okay!

I agree.

I think it will do rather well on the radio the next month(s), but not longer than that. Not close to being a masterpiece, but it will do its job and get attention to the compilation. Kind of like Sweetest thing I guess.

The problem I had with the Sweetest Thing was that they nailed it the first time. I never listen to the remix.

I've not made my mind up about the song yet but one thing I will say - the mix is nice and dense and miles better than the shit job Lillywhite did mixing and producing HTDAAB. I think HTDAAB would be miles better with a subtler and denser production like this.

I've been using it a lot in the last half
hour. I bet you're pissed at me.

Note to self: no more use of the eyebrow smiley! It's actually (I think) the first time I've ever used that smiley. I don't like it either!
