I actually liked Electrical Storm more. I'd put it up next to Sweetest Thing in quality, but it's not freaking amazing like 402.

The chorus has that "eternal", collective subconsciussness quality to it. Could be a huge song for them.

cross-posted from the long-ass thread full of emails that nobody can possibly read through

Rhapsodize:

"To talk with extravagant enthusiasm."

http://dictionary.reference.com/search?q=rhapsodize

So, a proper use of the word might be "Bono was rhapsodizing about WITS when he said it was an 'eternal song.'"

I think it'll have a great crowd response, the Oh oh oh ohooh before Please don't leave me out of here... and the chorus are great singalongs!

Where The Streets Have No Name

Window In The Skies

and one of my favorites, Wild Honey
Walk to the Water
Where did it all go wrong?

I think this is what WITS ended up as..it is an excellent song although, it's getting better with each listen. I'd put it up there with another 3 or 4 2000-era tunes as their best of this decade so far.

don't forget Wake Up Dead Man...

yeah, Window is damn good. Eternal? I don't know; that's a tall order. But it does have that Beatles/Lennon perfect pop feeling. The chorus is good, the end is amazing.

Isn't this beautiful? No political arguments, no bashing, just a bunch of U2 fans marvelling @ first listen 2 another gem.
