The Crystal Ballroom - Song Discussion

What's everyone thinking of the song? Personally I think it's criminal it's not on the proper album, so much fun and what a great edge solo at the finish.

Life begins with the first glance
The first kiss and the first dance
All of us wondering why we are here
In the crystal ballroom underneath the chandelier

Wet the glass until the glasses sing
We punish our hearts 'til the heart bells ring
Cos' where we come from we're not always kind
The human soul is what love leaves behind

We're the ghosts of love and we haunt this place
We're the ghosts of love in every face
In the ballroom of the crystal light
Everyone is here with me tonight
Every...one.. but you

Our first chance is their last dance
Our life is shaped by another's hands
Buttoning and unbuttoning a cold cold dress
Stopping and unstopping every cold caress

Born for bliss born for this
Every human life begins with a kiss
A kiss by every kind of possibility
And everyone is here tonight with me

We're the ghosts of love and we haunt this place
We're the ghosts of love in every face
In the ballroom of the crystal light
Everyone is here with me tonight
Every...one.. but you

Those lyrics are pretty bad. Bono's description of the subject matter was a lot more promising.

In Bono's words: "It's fucking brilliant"

Totally love this one. It's actually groovy! Did I just wrote that?
It could replace more than few on the album. Easy!!! My SOI alternate tracklist is shaping up nicely...

Spot on. Doesn't work very well out of context but the delivery is just right. It's that kind of song. Only makes real sense blasting it loud on the surround system. I just did.

I'm not giving in but based on what I'm reading, this song should have been on the album.

In very excited to hear it.

My biggest surprise - The Crystal Ballroom!!

I was expecting to like Lucifers hands better, just going by the song title. But nope. Crystal Ballroom is SO cool. And Lucifer's, while very good, does sound a little B-sideish. Like it still needs some refining.

I would say I like CB better than Miracle, This is Where, SFS and maybe even Iris and Cedarwood rd.

It has a super pop chorus that I could hear on the radio big time. LOVE the intro, and the roboto outro.
