Vertigo vs. other first singles

How does your reaction to Vertigo compare to other first singles from U2 albums (i.e. Discotheque, Beautiful Day) ?

Better than BD, Discoteque, Numb. Obviously not WOWY, The Fly, or Pride (was that a 1st single?)

WOWY was not the first single off JT. That was Streets.

I swear it was the 1st single, because I Still was 2nd. I thought Streets was the last video released. Either way, Vertigo isn't as good as any of those singles (though it's not a fair comparision)

Its U2's hardest rocking single ever. You could argue with the "The Fly", but "Vertigo" is just so loud and going 100mph!!!! It captures your attention like no other.

I am 100% sure WOWY was the first single. Streets was third.

Anyway, it is hard for me to gauge what the better first single is. This is definitely the biggest attention grabber since The Fly.

I like this much much better than BD. This is the U2 I fell in love with.

This is night and day from when Beautiful Day came out.
That day everyone was like, "it's good" or "well, it will grow on me..."
More than a few loved it, but not like this. WOW!!!

I'd say its in the top 5 for singles...

I know this is a little off the subject, but this is why U2 should have release "Mofo" as the first single off Pop. It would had suprised everyone.

It sounds like a combination of sounds from U2's entire catalog, but with a re-invigorated attitude.
