Sigh, could we please have this as a thread for those who DO NOT like Crumbs? That's why I started this thread, to find some companionship on this. I've already heard all the nauseating gushing on other threads, please spare me. The song is junk.

I really don't see the need to be critical of any U2 song.

If a song doesn't work for you, then just ignore it and play those that you like, but what is the underlying reason to bash anything or anyone here? It just doesn't fit with U2's overall message of love.

There are songs on HTDAAB that I prefer over others, but I keep my preferences to myself. I don't have a need to go out of my way to be negative and bash them.

"Crumbs" is a BEAUTIFUL EXPRESSION OF BONO'S ANGER AND FRUSTRATION OVER THE APATHY OF MANY PEOPLE REGARDING THE AIDS PANDEMIC AND EXTREME POVERTY in the world.

If the song makes you cringe, maybe instead of criticizing it, it would be a more productive use of your time to figure out what about the song you really dislike and then maybe begin to change your viewpoint in a way that you could appreciate the MASTERFUL MESSAGE IN "Crumbs".

Positivity is better than negativity everytime.

YOU SPEAK OF SIGNS AND WONDERS BUT I NEED SOMETHING OTHER....

I don't understand what the appeal is. Is it that some of you see parts of it as a reference to Africa and you feel guilty hating it for that reason? I was going to ask for an explaination of the appeal of it, but I'd rather find out if I am alone is disliking this song. Anyone?
Yep its the worst song on the album and that is saying something when you have an album containing A Man And A Woman. Yes Crumbs is a pretty poor song, with a solo that is verrrrrrrry bland and a guitar intro sound that has been used a million times before by The Edge and a playout that sounds too similar to Electrical Storm. Boring song, the only re-deeming feature is good lyrics.

I'm sorry, U2Kitten, but I don't see where anybody is picking on you. Right now, there's no reason for this thread to be deleted and/or closed.

I think Crumbs is a really good song. I especially like the version on the dvd.

Yeah, let's just have hate threads now. What a lovely idea.

This song is WONDERFUL and stands out for two reasons in particular:
- Edge's fantastic guitar. [If you don't like his guitar on this song, I suppose you hate Pride, ISHFWILF, and Walk On too.]
- Bono's brilliant and insightful lyrics. [Some of his best ever.]

I can't see why anyone would dislike this song, let alone outright hate it. It's part of the canon of political U2.

I have seen many other threads closed at the request of the author alone. The reason you can't see what's happening here is because it all looks like happy little comments to you, but there are people who do not like me who are posting how great the song is to irritate me because they see I have asked several times that this is not for those who love the song, and that the praise of it makes me ill. The fact that people continue to gush over it even though I have asked this proves that it's being done to get my goat and piss me off. I am truly disappointed that my request has not been honored. I have seen threads closed or deleted at the request of the author for sillier things than this. Why are you leaving it open, to make me look like a fool? Because that's it's done.

Oh, and for those of you who say this should have been done in private, my 3 PMs have gone ignored.
