How about they take a cue from the overwhelmingly positive reaction to Abbey Road show and play Lights of home or Love is bigger... with a choir/orchestra ?

No. He just hates Bono so much that this gave him the opportunity to jump down his throat.

No doubt they’ll play GOOYOW at the Grammys.

They should play Lights of Home (String version with orchestra) and Little Things

Yeah I’m about 99% sure this will tie in with Kendrick, which is ok because I like the songs he’s tied into on the album. I can get the dislike for American Soul but the slamming of GOOYOW is one of the more odd opinions I’ve seen in a while. It’s a great song and even better choice of a single.

GOOYOW is a good song, I like it lot. The live performances are getting better and better with the BBC version being very good.

It goes without saying that the megaphone is NOT part of my assessment of the live versions as that is as baffling as his purple glasses.

Let’s just address the elephant in the room.......

There is a 2.75% chance that they play Ordinary Love.

Yea I don't get it.

I think part of it is the grass is always greener syndrome that strikes this place often.

Yeah I don't get some of the rabid hatred for GOOYOW, and I'm one of those people who thinks it's a pretty unremarkable tune. Like, it's so bland that I can't imagine it provoking any strong feeling whatsoever.

Oh god, probably not wrong.

Mate, Larry is the one I usually accuse of being dead weight in this band. Get your stereotype right!

I don’t think it’s a hatred for GOOYOW.

From my perspective, apart from the BBC show, all their live performances of new songs (apart from Little Things on the JT tour) have been TBT, GOOYOW or AS. I think the genreral consensus is they are the 3 weakest songs on the album. I don’t think GOOYOW is a bad song by any means, just that SOE has so many really good songs I wish they’d promote the other songs more.

The BBC special was a great start, and it shows. Lights of Home and Love is Bigger were amazing performances and much better than GOOYOW or TBT with the orchestra.

They need to carry on with that and keep playing those other songs.

I was referring to the people like Cobbler who are calling it possibly U2's worst song ever.

First, what? Second, no. Third, worse than Stand Up Comedy or Boots or American Soul, really now? Fourth, what?

So I am in the camp of liking the song but being a reasonable person, I can understand one thinking it's.....bland. I can't for the life of me understand someone thinking it's "the worst" or even bottom 10 of just the millennium.

Are songs like "Miami" or "Daddy's going to pay" more interesting/different than GOOYOW, sure they are but if I'm driving on the highway and see a hawk eating the ass out of a dead raccoon on the side of the road I would also classify that as "investing/different" but that's doesn't make it good.

Lmao there's hardly anything on SOE that's as thrilling, engaging and memorable as the sonic hellscape that is DGPFYCC, let alone that limp noodle of a Beautiful Day cover that they passed off as single material.
