Worst instrumentation in a U2 song, bar none. IMO.

no, i wouldn't say so. in looking at his list now, i kinda generalised everything when i said it sucked. i don't hate red light, it's definitely not my favourite on the album. the refugee is the same way too. babyface i'm kind of neutral about it, i think it's kind of a weak track. but wild honey i don't like at all.

so you don't have the phail in you

I listened to WILATW again ... and it just sort of bores me. The Edge's guitar doesn't do it for me and the bass and drums couldn't be more bland. Bono's not doing great for most of that album ... I just don't like it. I prefer IALW to it, at least there's interesting guitar.

See, that's the sort of impression I have in my head of Things to Make and Do, which I haven't heard yet... Sounds like something they'd have on Playschool.

I need to make a CD of U2 instrumentals...
Except I probably wouldn't be able to resist putting the ones in that have minimal vocals....

Lies? It IS the only instrumental they've done, at least a named one. U2 By U2 mentions some unnamed instrumental they did in the very early days, but my sneaking suspicion is that it just evolved into TTMAD anyway.

I totally don't get "J. Swallo", but then you have people here who write "Wake Up Deadman" and "Van Dieman's Land" and so forth. COME ON, PEOPLE.

I love the rhythm of the song. Learn to love the rhythm.

Phail Collins, do you want me to keep sending you songs or not?

It's that keyboard/xylophone chimy thing. It sends shudders up my spine, honestly. I hate it more than any song they've ever done.

I go to war against Achtung Baby for you, I deserve more respect than that.

I, uh, have a thing for pre-Boy U2 and think it's an awesome era. Lost On A Silent Planet and The Dream Is Over are two of my U2 favourites.

I mostly hate Bono's vocals and the lyrics in Babyface. Though the opening instrumentation sounds cheesy-awful too.
