I think it's really terrible... U2 almost should be ashamed of themselves...

Yep I don’t like it! I’ll probably will not listen to it again. It’s OK it’s for a kids movie and I wasn’t expecting anything super special anyway.

I do agree with you. For the first time of my life I have to say that Bono is getting older

It starts ok but the ending with B & E singing is terrible.

It takes a lot of talent to write a song this dreadful.

The collaboration with a respected Indian composer yielded a considerably more interesting arrangement with that track.

And I think the melody on this part is fantastic:

This is an invitation to a high location
For someone who wants to belong
This is a meditation on your radio station
If you like it you can sing along



That's not to say that the entire thing is great, but it's more memorable than this new one.

Agree.

YSSML is fine for the first 90 seconds, not so much for the second 90 seconds.

Also, and I thought the same thing with “we are the people …”, but this sounds like what I thought/feared semi-retirement would sound like.

An ok song for a children’s movie. My favorite part of the song is the pre-chorus (Are you a stranger in your own eyes, etc.)…

I can’t help but think they missed something great with this song.

The melody is there. It’s understated for Bono which is welcomed. He draws out the vowels you caaaan heeeeaaaaaarrr meeeee

The first falsetto comes in and it’s fine, because immediately Bono comes in with a lovely verse

Then the falsetto…..and falsetto…..falsetto….

Why not follow that first part where Bono sings again ?

I feel like that would have ended a great little pop song. Instead it sounds incomplete and off. It needs that deeper tone to come in and leave the falsetto where it belongs, a background melody.

Bono is going to be the voice for the character Clay Calloway in Sing 2. Plus, there will be 3 U2 covers. One of the them featuring ScarJo.

Ultimately it will go down in the ranks of other one offs that barely register in the U2 discography - talking to you, Window In The Skies - but also, not nearly as awful as the hyperbolic reactions in here make it out to be.

It's fine, probably fits the movie well, and we'll likely never hear of it again after the Oscars.

That’s a big assumption that it sill even be nominated for an Oscar.

You know what would be funny? If this song won the Oscar. They've had better songs nominated. I like the song and people's comments here have been hilarious, no doubt. Utter shit? Good gravy.

Ordinary Love was better, without a doubt. The Hands That Built America? Ehh, one of their absolute worst. The version from the actual film with the lacerating electric guitar into is better, but the melody on both the verses and chorus are weak as hell. I'm glad Eminem won that year, even if it meant that Gangs of New York, a film I love, didn't take a single Oscar out of the 10 it was nominated for.
