I dont think the song is that great. I think its pretty overrated here. Some of Bono's facial expressions in the video are pretty sweet though

I had a phenomenal collection of different versions, live,
studio, etc.. at one time.
Then crash, with no warning, no back up.
Listen to AB at work today and kept pausing it on WGRYWH's if someone walked into my office, because I didn't want to miss anything.
I do things like that.

amazing.. such raw power that's incredible

and the fact that's the only real STEREO song in any U2 album (or any album I own ever) makes it even better... no, no more than the real thing...

it's beautiful

go listen to the ZooTV opening and don't tell me that song (and that performance) is bad... that Edge solo

my first impression back in 1991: weakest (but not bad!) track on AB... after all the years its still a great song...i love the distorted guitar sound at the beginning

Achtung Baby is my favourite album of all time, since the day it was released!
However I was always somewhat disapointed by WGRYWH. I was absolutely gutted when it was released as a single ahead of my choices, So Cruel or UTEOTW.
I never hated it but only really began to love it after hearing it live on the Vertigo tour. Now I love it a lot more, but it's still one of my least played U2 songs.

I've always liked the video better than the song itself
