No problem? Not even that garbage guitar solo where Edge recycles his work on Cock Crazy? And then Bono coming in with "Yeah...yeah yeah yeah..."? Yikes.

I actually think it's a pretty song, nice guitar playing and vocal melody. The chorus is catchy and passionately sung. But that part I mentioned above is godawful.

I rank it slightly above the neutered, overwrought pap of EBW but they're the two weakest tracks on SOI for me.

Wow, can you quit with the negativity? Song for Someone is great. At least it sounds organic.

I’d take SFS, honestly. EBW is better but it’s so redundant.

They fucking butchered EBW for the studio take. The live version was a favorite of mine from the start, but it sounds so plastic now.

SFS sounds like a song a Disney princess would walk out to when she meets her love interest. Except way worse, because those songs kick ass sometimes.

No ragged guitar, no sale.

The demo is a really good track. The neutered version on the album is musically too understated and vocally too overstated.

When you say live version, do you mean the original 360 live version, or the I+E live version?

What is this demo version you speak of? I think I've seen you mention it before, but I've never heard it.

Original 360 version. I loved that song before they softened the guitar tone and threw on a bunch of unnecessary synths.

Haaaaaaaaaate the Adele I+E remix.

I like the studio version of EBW, and indeed think it's one of the better songs on SOI, but oh my god that IE tour version is awful.

The Adele gag got very old but there's a hint of truth in it.

On the subject of recycling riffs or lyrics, they've done it on a couple of the earlier records, obviously the bookend on War of "how long..." I guess there's also Cry and Is That All?

The intro organ on Love In Blindness is the main "and I'd join the movement if there was one I could believe in" melody of Acrobat. Difference being they were generally great songs from the same record and there was a condensed theme to it all.
