Trip Through Your Wires appreciation thread

This song is absolutely wonderful. After watching its pre-Joshua Tree performance (with Womanfish), which contained some terrible unfinished lyrics, I've come to really appreciate its gorgeous melody. It's just a simple 3 chord jam, but it succeeds in ways that its more staunch brethren fail; such as in pure fun. God bless the Edge for vetoing the other guys' votes to get it on the record. It was a genius move.

It's great. I don't know why people bash it.
Wankers.

Would've been a good b-side.

doctorwho would agree with you there.

I really don't understand why TTYW made JT and Spanish Eyes didn't, though. TTYW would've been fine as ISHFWILF's b-side.

Though I will admit, there are some pretty enjoyable live performances of TTYW floating around. (Interestingly [to me anyway], TTYW is the only JT song to have not been performed since the end of the JT Tour.)

It's a great song, beautiful melodies and vocals throughout. The Joshua Tree is such an intense album that it's so nice to have this to break up the darknesss, especially just before the "death trilogy".
Love it.
"You, I'm waiting for you...." Beautiful stuff!

Funny, it's the only song I put on my Independence Day mix CD. It's one of U2's few fun, "let er rip" kinda songs.

I've heard it described as being "too twangy". But what's wrong with a little twang now and then? Trip Through Your Wires is an amazingly fun song. Especially to sing along to all of Bono's crazy little yelps: "Woohoo! YEA!" and of course, "No more water in the well, no more water, WATER!"

It's a good song. I honestly don't understand why people don't like it. I've always enjoyed it. It's sorta bluesy-twangy-rock.

A great song.

Those who don't love it, well that's cool, they probably think Elevation is great rock and roll.
