I mean, that's the main reason Bono was there too.

SOI is great. SFS serves a great, specific role on the album. The album needs a song like that. Sure, it's sorta corny. It's also hella lovely, and that fits its subject matter perfectly.

Young love = corny + lovely.

If y'all don't like the guitar part and won't consider that it's simplicity is tied to the theme of the song (maybe Edge knows best) then there are plenty of kickass guitar parts being recorded and released by people every Friday. I suggest checking out Kvelertak, Mastodon, and especially Astronoid for some super tasty licks.

The guitar is fine, at least until the solo, where Edge rips off his already-lame work from Crazy Tonight.

Nauseating and tedious, you mean.

Which, I suppose, Song for Someone captures.

Astronoid.

Hell, they even called a song "Up and Atom". What's not to love.

Ian McCulloch the U2 fan:
"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."

Yeah I have no issue with SFS. Always thought it was odd how poorly it was received here.

It's a bit trite and sappy, and therefore uncool, so no one will admit to liking it, lest they be uncool. I have no issues with it - can be a lot of fun to sing loudly in the car.

Ludicrously over the top vocal performance from Bono. The verses are ok but then the chorus explodes and its horrific.

Still think it should have opened the 2nd night of the IE Tour vs playing Miracle both nights.
You are absolutely right. TIWYCRMN was the perfect song to open the I+E tour. From the opening line " Soldier Soldier " onwards the audience would be so involved. But..... alas !!!
