Fast Cars

Am I the only one that hates the song? or are there others? Does everyone outside the UK like it jusr 'cause it's a bonus track? It really annoys me...for me a horrible album closer after Yahweh

Pretty good song, very unique sounding. I don't look at it as the album closer, just a bonus song.

I do have to say that I prefer the chorus to Xanax and Wine.

It's not good as an album closer, but it's an awesome song...

I used to hate it, but it's grown on me. I still find it quite annoying but I the bridge of the song. For me it's the redeeming feature of Fast Cars.

I think it's kick-ass. It's awesome seeing U2 "experimenting" with different kinds of musical flavors. While I like the rest of HTDAAB, I think Fast Cars (and Xanax & Wine) has the most creative energy in it.

I think its excellent. I like many of you downloaded all the songs a week before album release. And fast cars was the only new song I heard when I bought the cd. I loved it. a total change from the rest of the album. not agood closer

It's a cool song. But Xanax and Wine is better.

I think it's an amazing song. I was so excited when they played it at the Philly show I was at. Only the tenth time it had been played I think.

So um, yeah you're the only one.

I got the UK import just for this song. Yahweh is a better album closer, but Fast Cars is a great song. I usually listen to it separately, rather than with the rest of the album anyway. Some parts of Xanax & Wine are better, but the majority of the music in Fast Cars is better. I love them both

Xanax and Wine is more of a straightforward rock song, it's a good song to listen to while you're hyper, lol... but Fast Cars is ultimately more interesting. I enjoy both. And I never think of bonus tracks as album closers, I think of them as just that - bonus tracks. though Fast Cars is better than some of the songs on HTDAAB, I think. but I have a copy of it and they played it live, so I'm not upset that they left it off the album.

Fast Cars is a great song, the sound is so interesting, really caught my attention after my first listen. Xanax and Wine is also a great rock song but I just find Fast Cars much more interesting overall

Great song, shame they didnt put it on as a bona fide track, like Ground Beneath Her feet on ATYCLB its as good as any other song on the album.
