Miss Sarajevo appreciation thread

I don't think there was an appreciation thread of this song do I decided to open one.

Miss Sarajevo means a lot to me specially after I saw the performance on the concert. I love everything about this song... The lyrics are just great. In my opinion they mix the greatest problems of the world like racism( "Is there a time for different colours, Different names you find it hard to spell"), terrorism and fear ("Is there a time for keeping your head down, For getting on with the day") , religion conflicts("Is there a time to turn to Mecca") with beauty in a way that I've never seen before (or even after).

Then the italian is such a magnificent sound. It really hits home for me...

This song is great because it was written with a very special ink.............................Bono's Heart.............................
It's a wonderful song, and it sounded amazing live...................I bet Bono put a piece of Bob Hewson in this song, too in 1995 when he wrote it..............................

It's a good song...I have to say I really didn't care for it all that much until I saw it performed live. Then I think what got me was Bono singing Pavarotti's part.

This song blows my mind. Especially in the tour when as someone else pointed out Bono sang the opera part.

One of the most gorgeous songs ever, not only for U2 but for anyone! Such understated verses, amazing build up and ecstatic climax! Love it!

I totally agree with you, Katie, I gained a huge appreciation for the song after seeing it live...... One of the things I really liked about it live was being able to see the emotion while Bono was singing it

yeppers! I agree too!! I this song so much! Even before seeing it performed live whenever I would play it the opera part would give me goosebumps every time. Then... I saw it live right in front of me and it just sent me over the moon!!! OMG!!! Bono is so passionate and so into the song his emotion just blows me away! Goosebumps on top of goosebumps!!

It's so very moving, that at times when I listen to it, it brings tears to my eyes.

I love lots of stuff from the 90's AB is my 2nd favorite album (for now, cuz HTDAAB and October are creeping up), and Zooropa is in my top 5. I just don't like some of the slowish songs like this or love is blindness. Too dramatic for my tastes I guess. I'm not too fond of the Passengers album I suppose. I kinda like what people would label as the "typical" sound of U2.
