Why can't I find this on i-tunes? I've searched under everything. Maybe it isn't available on Canadian i-tunes?

I have loved the original song for a while and I have to say I do not rate this cover at all.

It is a worthy cause but they sure picked a difficult song to sing. Bono sounds weak and reedy, and Alicia has too much warbling for my liking (even though I like her other work, it doesn't fit this song). It is virtually impossible to improve upon Kate Bush's ethereal tones in the original.

I don't think the song suits either of their voices, even though they both have fantastic tones with the right material.

Some songs should never be covered. they absolutely murdered this song.

I didnt think I would say that because when I first heard about I was pumped, that song brings back a ton of good memories for me. Not to mention I really like both artists a lot.

But damn thats a stinker! its almost as bad as the "whats going on" butchering...almost
