I threw a brick / wire

I just love I Threw a Brick Through a Window and Wire ( mainly because of Larry, I think), but no one ever talks about them.

Am I alone here ?

Comments please

I Threw A Brick is such a great song... better live, though..

No one is blinder than he who will not see.

No way
Wire is in my top 10 for sure.
I adore that song.
I am especially fond of the way Bono sings "Kiss mehhh ugh oooh"

get me a fan baby!

Yes I Threw a Brick is awesome...those drums at the beginning of any live version are brilliant.

Wire is a hot song...the extended rap bono puts on it is great...

I love both Wire and ITABTAW - very underrated!

I Threw a brick through a Window is very cool, and very underrated ust like everything on October.

Wire is beyond cool . I love that song, what a wicked guitar riff, and Bono's rap at the end is waaay coo.

I'm not a huge fan of I Threw A Brick Through A Window, but Wire is awesome! I especially enjoy a live version I have on a bootleg called "My Hometown" from Dublin in 1984 or 1985. Bono does this extra bit on the rap at the end, and it sounds kinda like a predecessor to Underworld's Born Slippy. He also makes these really weird sounds; shouts or whoops or something. I can't really describe them.

I'm searching for my mainline,
I said I couldn't hit it sideways,
I said I couldn't hit it sideways,
Ah, it's just like Sister Ray says!

I Threw a Brick is awesome, Larry owns that song. One of his greatest moments. Wire--the guitar on my song and the sheer nasty scary power makes me cold inside. Great song!

So wind blow through to my heart
So wind blow through my soul

Wire has always been a favorite of mine, both album version and live, but it took the various live versions of I Threw A Brick to make me appreciate it more than I had.
