This or Love is bigger... needs to be a single.

I agree.

Love is Bigger would have made a nice 2nd single followed in the Spring by Summer of Love.

Unlike many here, I have no issue with GOOYOW being a single bit it’s not the best option at this point.

There's a remix of Summer Of Love that's been played on the BBC too, haven't heard it myself yet though:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/music/tracks/n4jpmr

Edit:

Okay, it was apparently played on Radio 1:

Is that an official remix sanctioned by the band? It’s okay but nothing special.

The remixes for SOE have been very underwhelming ....

Best Thing by Kygo- this is an average remix that when compared to the below remixes sounds like Stairway to Heaven 6/10

Summer of Love Tilt- the beat is cool but doesn’t really sync with the song and
Bono’s vocal delivery(something seems off) 5/10

Blackout by Jacknife- I mean, did they leave a Nintendo on in the background when recording it? 2/10

GOOYOW Switch - Not really a remix but more of a random techno beat that has the GOOYOW chorus in it 1x. 1/10

Almost every remix they've ever done has that annoying follow the bouncing ball repetitive rhythm. It's almost unfathomable that so many could be so unlistenable. A remix doesn't have to be utterly redundant.

Best Thing by Kygo may be the best remix they've ever had.

I like the "remixes" that are basically alternate versions, like Dirty Day's bitter kiss mix.

I really don't think there is a bad song on SOE, but this one just hasn't clicked with me to the same level that it seems to with many on this site. I'd actually rank this closer to the bottom of the list of my favorites on SOE.

The positives: Beautiful melody, lyrics, and strings toward the end of the song. Great guitar work.

Negatives: That edit in the bridge is inexcusable. It is so jarring and I can't believe it slipped under the radar and made the album. I strongly dislike the bellowing contributed by Lady Gaga. It just comes from out of nowhere and again is pretty jarring to my ears. I think U2 should have either kept her vocals as they were originally described as a "massive prechorus," or dumped her vocals all together. Edge could very easily have provided backing vocals if they were only going to use "luhuhuhuove."

That being said, I do find myself singing along when it pops up on my stereo and I do enjoy it. A question to anyone who bought the vinyl: is the poor editing on the bridge on the vinyl as well? I own it but my turntable is shot so I'm waiting for my new one to be delivered.

A good song with powerful lyrics; however, the song is too repetitive with that cool, yet irritating guitar riff and Bono's fatiguing rhyme scheme, "freezing, leaving, believing." Bono needs a reminder that every line does not need to rhyme or be filled up with words. Give the music more room to breathe. This song and American Soul are the only two on the record that I cannot and do not want to listen to on repeat.

I wonder if any of the numerous producers / collaborators they have worked with in the past 10 years have had the guts to tell Bono this? Its so damn obvious and a no-brainer improvement he could make.
