That contemporary, yet tasteful main guitar part, oh man.

That groovy beat throughout, oh man.

That catchy chorus ("I've been thinking 'bout the west coast...") with those lyrics, oh man.

Those strings at the end of the middle-8 and towards the end, oh man.

The song has a Quentin Tarantino film aspect to it. Cool little ditty with dark undertones.

Perfectly captures the vibe I think they were going for. This sounds like heat - it sounds like desert. But it's dark. This is a sunset song for Aleppo and it sounds like it. Edge's work here is so tasteful and Bono's vocal is perfectly restrained.

I think this could be a successful single. It's short, catchy and goes down easy.

Mesmerizing song. Love the guitar. My favorite of the "new" songs- second favorite on the album after Little Things.

I have to imagine Lady Gaga used to have a bigger part on this track. Doesn't make sense for her to do only background vocals.

Interesting track. This and The Showman are like the two they decided to get in a time machine and record in 1965. I enjoy this one more. I'm thankful Gaga's not up front in the mix.

Someone has probably pointed this out already, but the percussion is reminiscent of Time of the Season by the Zombies.

I’ve visions of myself laying on the summer grass with my fly shades on, staring at the sun, sucking on a lemon popsicle.....listening to this.

This. If they don't capitalize with a single they push with a video... it's a missed opportunity, IMLTHO.
