I cant remember the difference in the original and the Best of CD2 version, the Best of version is the one I listen to more.

It's the mother of The Fly and Ultraviolet, you can hear them crawling around in it.

Play the extended dance mix really loud -- one of U2's most under-appreciated efforts, IMO.

That's a very interesting way of putting it, Vlad.

I totally listened to this song because of this thread, I'm not even lying or anything. I listened to it loud and hard. What do you Beach Clip worshipers have to say about that?! Nothing, right? I thought so.

Ideal would be if the "Wake Up Dead Man aka Take You Down" and "LWTSH" were one long song, like...

"wake up..wake up..wake up dead lady with the spinning head"
(imagine that, visually)

P.S.: love to listen to it after Levitate and let Holy Joe follow this goddesque creation of notes

i love the part in take you down, where they start with what we now know as ultra violet.
Different lyrics, but the last line is the same (as i can remember). Great moment. The guitar solo is the mother solo for the fly definitely.

Awesome song. Larry takes it to another level and the Edge is a beast on this one. Great workout music.

The extended dance mix is perfection. Kinda sums up everything I love about AB.

I was just listening to this song the other day in my car and I went into this state of trance. I just went to this other world and when I came back I wanted to go back again. It really is a B-side that makes the top A-sides run for their money.

Play it loud on your mp3-player and start sporting/running. The music helps you to release more adrenaline and go faster. What a boost

This song gives me a splitting headache, I kid you not. I have never been able to listen to it enough to come to like it.

The song "WAKE UP" was sort of the prequel to this one. Love that one as well. It can be found on Salome b-sides.
