Dirty Day is absolutely superb live, while The First Time turns into a bit of a snoozefest. It's a good song, but not better than Dirty Day.

Don't worry baby, it's gonna be all right. Uncertainty can be a guiding light...

Lyrically, The First Time is one of Bono's finest efforts. Really remarkable stuff. As a matter of fact, since 1990-2000 is clogged with '00s material, it's probably one of the best in that regard. So why did it make the best of? Because a number of tracks are much worse.

I'm really sad that The First Time is being knocked off.

Wow, I really couldn't disagree more. Some of his worst lyrics, I think.

Bono disagrees! The last verse is the most revealing of his "I'm not sure I get this Christianity thing anymore" phase IMO. Better than most of Pop because of its simplicity.

Zooropa needs a song like The First Time as well. I adore the album's icy inhumanity, but that's not U2.

Yeah. The First Time is probably the second best song on the album with regard to lyrics. And better than pretty much anything he's written in the last decade and a half.

I'm also sad that The First Time is getting voted off, and I too am confused about why it was put on the Best Of. It's a great song, but there are so many 90's songs that are better... And it wasn't a single or popularly known.

I also like the way it breaks up the "icy inhumanity." Zooropa feels sterile, detached, devoid of emotion for the most part. The First Time is full of emotion, and it also sounds/feels like it could have been on one of the 80's albums.

The First Time is one of the few songs in existence that can give me goosebumps every time I hear it.
