I really wish he would write something better, but at least it's something? Look At the World is a better song, but I realize it's not really about the same topic either. Edge's guitar work in it is pretty awesome

Agreed. That's such a great performance of Walk On - particularly for Bono's yell of anguish between the intro and the band kicking in.

But my favorite version is the one from the Grammys, because I am ALL OVER gospel choirs coming in with a bunch of heartfelt "Hallelujahs."

Yep. It was my second favorite Popmart song after HMTMKMKM.

Okay, I need something else to listen to. Something besides Porcupine Tree, if Axver's hanging around waiting for his sangers to toast.

Shee-it son, I love gospel choirs. Injecting soul into a song is like having pizza for breakfast, lunch, and dinner to me - it's always welcome.

That's mainly my theory. I don't like Bono being "sexy" I guess I like him being more serious. Apparently I don't believe Bono should have fun

EBTTRT isn't bad, MW is decent studio and great live, Babyface can FOAD, and DYFL and IYWTVD are both good.
