Eh. I'm on live and let live terms with this one. I don't hate it. I don't love it. 6.17 out of 10.

I'll sometimes have to cringe to get past the "Ah-ah-ah-ah-a-aaaahhhh" -- it feels so weightless and un-U2 to me -- but darned if this song doesn't otherwise lodge itself in your brain and stay there. Which ... I guess was the plan

I have a confession to make. I used to think that GOOYOW doesn't sound that much like Beautiful Day, but when they played it in Tulsa, my first thought was “Why are they playing Beautiful Day again?”

My favorite version of the song is the Womankind mix. This version eliminates the opening ahahaahs, Kendrick's sermon, and uses the "if I could sing it to you" part three times and closes the song with it. This version is also just 3 minutes long. My custom playlist for Songs of Experience eliminates the album version and uses the Womankind mix.

I think that people who already like this song but had some issues with it would enjoy this version more than the original. And people who do not care for this song would at least enjoy the song more than they previously did.

While the remixes associated with this album have, save for a couple, been atrocious...the “womankind” mix is one of the better ones.

I would say the Beck LIBTAIIW, Beck LOH and Best Thing Kygo are some of the better (not great) remixes.

Then there are the other GOOYOW , Blackout and LIBTAIIW mixes that are fucking awful/embarrassing.

There is a GOOYOW mix that is literally Bono saying “wow” the whole time (save for 1 chorus inclusion)....it’s so bad!

I'm in the minority that thinks the song is great as is, and I still can't stop blasting it.

Yeah, the remixes for this album range from uninteresting to awful for the most part. However, the Womankind mix of Get Out is superior to the album version in my opinion. Bono keeps trying to say this is a "pop song" but ruined the pop appeal of it with their album mix. The Womankind mix brings out the pop in this song and elevates to an excellent track.

Even though its formulaic. I tend to just get lost in the music. Strangely pleasing

Anything sounds good over a G-D-A-Bm progression, really.
