There are some remarkable lyrics in this song
I've always been partial to the part before those lines:

But my sorrows, they learnt to swim
Surrounding me
Going down on me
Spilling over the brim

That's just whacky. I wonder if it was the same ghost that keeps making Ravva double post?

That whole bit is so amazing.

I don't like that song nearly as much as everyone else on this forum, but that part of the song I agree is great



I also love So Cruel I don't know what you guys are talking about it never going anywhere

It's a much better song live, if you ask me. UTEOTW --> WGRYWH/NYD is fucking awesome and I'm glad I've heard the band do both.

It just booooores me. It's so slow and musically inconsequential and mixed appallingly.

Man when Bono gets on a kick he stays on it. Right now it's knees and kneeling

Early 90s it was horses.

WTF Bono...did you experiment a little while you were in Germany or something? Bono lost a few of the last purity points if you ask me.

I like So Cruel too.

However, I ADORE the Back Mask early takes of it. The 8 minute one is so, so, so beautiful. Few times have I ever been so moved emotionally by a song.

UTEOTW live was epic. Especially when Bono chased Edge around the Ellipse during the guitar solo


Even I and my untrained-to-this-sort-of-thing ear would agree So Cruel needs some help, but I have to agree with Chass and others who posted earlier, the lyrics make up for it.

Donkey's can't run away over hills, so Bono had to mask his affection behind a horse

Heh, yeah, and the Elevation UTEOTW fights were classic.

I don't think lyrics alone can save a song that's 1. musically dull, 2. badly mixed and 3. sung like some terribly overwrought sentimental number.
