Why is that everyone on here has to hate all the songs that have done well and are quite well known..i mean its like just because everyone else has recognized how good the song is all the 'real' u2 fans have to hate it. I think one rocks, and yeah that live version is really cool!

I don't understand why Heartland is praised at all.

I'm so tired of this stupid, 'Oh it's popular so it must be a toss-off, accessable to the mass-market, voted-top-10-list-constantly, award-racking-up, lyrically banal, 'look at me I'm an indie U2 fan', Pitchfork media musical taste geshtapo attitude towards well known U2 songs.

Musical taste is like the ass, it's divided.(TM)

Honestly, a while ago I decided not to visit bash & appreciation threads anymore. It's pointless posting in a thread just to say "One is tha best song, omg!!11!1" or "Miami! ", which are about the most useful comments in those kind of thread.
Yeah man biff boom bam boom baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

To me it sounds just like every other version of One I've heard over the past decade and a half. It's a tired song that's lost a lot of its, I don't know, mmmph over the years. I feel like they are going through the motions every time they play it, which is one reason I feel like the setlist should be shaken up and One taken out. They have loads of other songs that they still enjoy playing that they could easily substitute into its spot. I haven't heard an inspired performance of One in over 10 years. definitely at least since the days of Zoo TV.

I know what you mean with songs getting over played..i just think one is a classic and it does irritate me when all the 'old time' u2 fans have to start slating it, and other such popular u2 songs.

Both Modena versions and Millenium Hall with Daniel Lanois are my favourite live performances.

That said, no live version matches the studio magic.

you win dewd.

I used to consider One my favourite U2 song ever. I don't know if I'd say that now, but I do think it's a beautiful song, and I think it packed a lot of power at Slane. The thing about the Vertigo versions was the long speech before it, and it made the song sort of less personal. But especially when they add the extra verse at the end it's really magical, I think.

One has been pretty much ruined for me by that Mary J Blige's butchering of the song.

Yeah, Slane or Zoo TV Sydney live versions are the ones I dig the most. Not too big on the Popmart version.
