It's one of the best on "Bomb". I absolutely love it. There's just something so inherently beautiful about it that's hard to describe.

"Freedom has a scent like the top of a newborn baby's head" is a beautiful lyric.

as much as i love that song, i surprisingly cringe at that lyric. but i think perhaps it has something to do with my disdain for babies.

i do love this song though. when i first heard the album i played this song on repeat for that day. it is really transcendant. i don't even know WHERE it takes me, it just takes me away. those first few notes are just amazing...and then it just carries you away.

im gonna go listen to it again

it's a decent song, i liked it more from the beach clip though, and was disappointed after i heard the album version. it could have been that the beach clip misled me though.

At all you Baby haters!




Seriously, that must be one of Bono's all time favourite lines because he has used it in Levitate was well. Maybe that's what Babys' heads smell like to him.

* imagine Bono running around a hospital sniffing at new borns' heads *


I really love the song, loved it from the first time I heard it, and love it even more since I learned about the story behind it. The opening always gives me shivers, especially live. I agree that the song has something amazingly beautiful about it.

When I first heard this song I wasn't overly impressed at all, it sounded to me like the kind of thing U2 had done before and better. But when they began playing it on tour my appreciation really grew, it seemed to make more sense. I liked Bono's nightly speech about how much we need doctors and nurses, which I always felt was a quiet nod to Edges personal situation, who actually gets to sing a few lines of his own in this one. What's even spookier is that these are the lines that talk about science and medicine, something which at that time in his life he could really relate to. Of course at the time of recording HTDAAB, he had no idea about what he would be facing, so its really strange that of all the segments on all the songs on the album that he could have sung, he was either chosen or wanted to sing this one.

On the album version I didn't much care for Bono's voice but being out on the road seemed to free his vocals up and he sang the song much better, plus I really enjoyed the synths that were weaved into the last chorus giving the thing a sense of lift off.

Oh and although I think the baby's head line is chessy I don't loathe it, it's all taste at the end of the day.

I adore this song, and actually I think it's overtaken COBL as my favourite Bomb song, which I hastily decided the other day might be my least favourite U2 album after all.

good song, but something holds it from making it a u2 classic.

but anyway, the guitar solo by edge leading into his vocals and then the final chorus is incredible, a classic u2 moment.

Simply one of the best songs on an album, that besides this tune is a masterpiece itself –*not more, not less ...

The only reason I missed more bomb songs on the 5th leg.
