The exact same thing happened to me!! I can't remember anything about Blackout hardly!!!!

I think the Best Thing has been in my head since last year when I first heard the Kygo mix. IT IS SO DAMN CATCHY IT MAKES ME SICK!!

Yes, but it sounds like the intended original is in the opposite direction of the kygo mix -even slower and mellower. (As opposed to the direction of being more like the kygo mix)

I completely agree. Past 72 hours, haven't been able to get the tune out of my mind, even though I too like The Blackout better. Let's hope it takes off.

The black out is a good song, Jong.

I remember it, Everett

what i always like about U2 is how they build up songs and use dynamics to really create the mood of the song. what's disappointing about the Best Thing is that they somehow forgot all of that and made this messy chorus

The Best Thing is definitely a grower, rather than a shower.

I like TBT now and it do s get stuck in your head. There is soooo much going on in that song that I like. I get why some don't like the song around here but again, it's not for us (at least that's my take)
... but do mainstream, non-U2 fans give a shit about new U2 anymore?

Really cannot see why people would want them to release the kygo remix.

It's embarrassing and stinks of depression on U2's part.

Everyone's mocking Coldplay for doing exactly the same thing and saying how bad their new stuff is (on here anyway) but yet want u2 to do it

Grow old gracefully, being relevant shouldn't come at all costs

No. This is why I wish they would give up on trying to win them over.

So many new people saying they L-O-V-E the song that I'm starting to think some of Bono's Russian oligarch pals are paying bots to come 'round here and hype it up.

FAKE news comes to Interference. Sad!

TBT is like Coldplay not, the Kygo version the single version. It's a blatant catchy pop tune by numbers, an attempt to be relevant and get in the charts. That's whats galling.

You're the Best Thing About Me - Song Discussion Thread #2

One thing I have noticed is that I listen to virgin radio in the uk, while at work. Now this channel is a rock channel basically, they play u2 a lot. But apart from when Adam was on last week that's the only time I've heard the new single. I have it on between 7.30am and 3.30pm, I've heard the song played once. That's not good when these are the channels that will still play new u2 songs.

All the Joshua tree singles, vertigo , beautiful day are on a lot. Ive even heard discotheque played on there this week. Best things has only been played once

Down to Number 48 on the U.K. iTunes aswell
