Make me like this song!

Off the top of my head, there's only one U2 song that I really just can't get into: "A Room at the Heartbreak Hotel." I think it's those back-up singers. They annoy me. Thoughts?

I couldn't hate any song from the days off Joshua Tree and Rattle & Hum if only because Bono's voice was so great back then

at least you didn't pick Red Light

Well, I don't hate it, per se. It just doesn't really do anything for me. I dunno. I feel guilty even saying that, but it doesn't.

BTW: "Red Light" is an awesome song!

I love the way the song kind of slowly creeps up on you....."you want the truth but you need the lies..." I love that line.

WISH I could convince you, wertsie....I loooooove this song, it's great to play at full volume in the mornings on the way to work. Bono's voice is SO strong and rich...and I love the backup singers as well...I'm always wishing *I* had a voice like that...man....

oh well...difference of opinions, I guess.

Can't help convince you...because I always skip this song. Not a big fan.

I can't believe that they put that piece of shit on the best of instead of 'Deep In the Heart' and don't even get me started on 'Gloria' and 'When love Comes to Town'

I't okay not to like everything, no one does! It's like going to the all you can eat buffet. Not everyone wants everything. There is NOTHING wrong with that and you are not a bad fan or a bad person! It's okay! Just listen to what you do like.

You know...I REALLY like Larry's drum part in the song...hehe

I guess I go by that one quote Jennifer Grey says in Dirt Dancing. "If you love me, you have to love all the things about me." *shrugs*

You know what? I'm listening to it this moment, and it's really starting to grow on me. The band sounds great. Oh, shit, here come those crappy backup singers again...time to switch to different song...ahhhh...."Seconds"! Much better!

Grrr...Damn backup singers! grumble, grumble!

the backup singers are what ruins the Rattle and Hum version of Still haven't found...

When their voices come in I ALWAYS skip!

You don't like A Room at the Heartbreak Hotel????? Quickly, cast yourself out

Seriously though, I love this song. I think it is really hypnotic and haunted. I wish it had been on Rattle and Hum. It is one of my favs from that period. And, I like the backup singers. Listen to it again, you'll come around

Peace.

Peace on Earth.

I've listened to it...over and over and over. I am getting to where I really like the song...up until the part where the damn backup singers came in!
