I think the tracklisting is fine. Conceptually, WILATW makes sense following Peace On Earth, which is another underrated song. Most people are turned off by the title (i orginally was) but it's Bono at his most spiteful and (according to Neil Stokes) agnostic. Anyway, after WILATW comes New York, which never sat as "blah" with me. I think it's the most exploratory moment on the record. New York..a really really really underrated song.

I agree that New York is incredibly underrated. I think it's a great song and I'd have thought it ought to be more talked about than it is. I don't think it's quite perfect though but still, a great track.

totally agree with you, another one that I love and that is underated is a day without me- love that song to bits. Along with I will follow out of control and electric co it totally makes the album

It fitted for me the first time I heard it. I think its cos WILATW seems to portray Bonos growing wisdom as he's getting older, with him having a much more mature voice than before.

Normally I agree with Zoot on everything and this is no exception.

WILATW is one of the best things this band did on ATYCLB. Well the singing could've been a tad stronger, but it's a great tune nonetheless.

Thank you Queen Bee for creating the alphabetized song list on this forum. I had no idea what WILATW stood for until I scrolled through that list.

I enjoy both songs although I have not heard When I Look At The World in quite a while. More like at least a 3 years.

I haven't listened to WILATW for a while, but it's probably one of my favorites off of ATYCLB

As for OOC.. I listen to that practically everyday, if not, twice . I don't know why, but I really love that song.

and I have to agree with the previous posts.. OOC at Slane

Out Of Control is ...just too amazing for words!

WILATW, I was actually listening to this song yesterday and I was surprised at how great that song is....I didn't like is as much before but I guess it grew on me. It is a beautiful song definitely one of the stronger songs of ATYCLB!!!
