Yahweh again

Do most people like Yahweh for its religous theme or because it just a good song?

I am not a religous person but I still like the song.
(Although, for me it is not the best song on the album)

I love the soul of it...I'm not a christian persay, but the song really puts me in that place where i feel connected to something higher.

I love the musical and lyrical aspects of it. Musically it's just so damn satisfying, the song structure, everything about it signals the close of an album but doesn't leave you feeling empty or wanting more. If any song has ever left me with a "full and satisfied" feeling after it finishes, it is Yahweh.

I like it for the religious aspects as well as the fact that it's a good song.

I like it for both.

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."

the soul of the song is so great and its an universal(religious) song (or should i say a 'song for the universe'? ;-)). listen to the end of the altern. version. do you hear the tibetanian prayer bells??? that's a great idea

Yeah, I'm about as agnostic as you can get, and I love this song.

It's a very uplifting tune, the guitars are great. I can be moved something delivered with passion, even if it's something I'm not personally connected to. I find more spirituality in U2's music than any book or dogmatic ideas.

Yahweh is a grower, that kind of song that catch you more and more and every listen is a release....the lyrics are so inspiring, but the melody is even better....makes you wanna fly...

I love Yahweh, this must be the closing song of the Vertigo Tour.
