The "Stuck In A Moment You Can't Get Out Of" Appreciation Thread

Who else here thinks that this song is unfairly bashed? For me, it's one of my favorites from All That You Can't Leave Behind. It's got a great melody and some of my favorite U2 lyrics. I know I'm not in the minority here (the song did win a Grammy for cryin' out loud) when I say that it truly is a wonderful tune. I believe that many just hate the U.S. version of the "Stuck" music video (which I happen to find rather humorous and fun to watch) and thus hate the song as well.

So, join with me brothers and unite together in appreciation of this U2 classic.


BTW, this thread is not for "Stuck" haters. Go elsewhere if you want to do that. Because:

I'm not afraid
of anything in this world
There's nothing you can throw at me
That I haven't already heard

I Stuck in a Moment...

Great, great song! I remember walking around campus my freshman year here at college with that song on my headphones and thinking, "Yeah, I really AM!" I feel like Bono's singing to ME with this song!

Viva Stuck!

very good uplifting song , EDGe + Bono are great poets .
I really like the studio and acoustic version of the song . U2 should try it acoustic next tour .

Wait, why didn't somebody tell me when Grammies became meaningful?

Anyway, a good song live, when it isn't drowned in overproduction. The acoustic version is, ironically, too stripped down, but at least they hit it right live.

(Actually, I just listened to it again, and it's just stripped down enough. Very nice.)

I love the song; I don't like the radio edit.

even though it didn't became the big hit some thought it would be IMO it is the most perfect song U2 has ever written (not my favourite one, but close)
just a gorgeous song with great lyrics

I really don't like the American version either! Except the guy with "Hewson" on the back of his jersey...

Now, the European version on the other hand...

I agree. Its such a clean and perfect song. Lyrically, its one of their best. and I love the contrast between the heaviness of the meaning behind stuck and the uplifting musical sense it portrays, i.e. the horns, and that guitar sound.

I have always liked this song, but I would never of ranked it very high when compared to the rest of All That... . Maybe 6th.

Then the acoustical version come out and I saw this song in a whole new light. It exposes U2's (well Bono and the Edge) shear talent. Armed with just a guitar, this song is truly beautiful.

Agreed!

Probably my favorite song from the album, along with IALW. Great lyrics, and beautiful melody.

I totally agree.....definitely is one of the first songs to go on a U2 mix.

I just love the first 10 seconds of it.

Also, the Irving Plaza show version of it was SO GOOD.

*runs off to listen again*

I love how Bono sings out, "Heeeeeeyyyyyyyyyyy" in the beginning in concert....

I love this song! It's great both live and studio. I haven't yet heard the acoustic version though - I assume it's a b-side to the Stuck single?

A song with some really optimistic and uplifting lyrics and a great melody. I especially love the ending part with Edge singing the "And if the night runs over" part. Watch him close his eyes while singing it live on the Boston DVD to fathom the pure emotion of the song.

Love this song! I cannot understand why some people are saying it should be left of the new Best Of! are you nuts??? Also I have sung this song at karaoke and sometimes as a duet with a female friend, she does the chorus and I sing the verses, it sounds like a kind of "reached the end of the road" in a man/woman relationship kind of song when you sing it as a duet, it works really well! lol

It's great to know that there's a lot of you out there that love this song. I was beginning to think that everyone was losing their faith in ATYCLB, but I guess those that really enjoy the album and "Stuck" are in the silent majority.
