A Man And A Woman - and a growing problem.

It really doesn't fit in on the album, it has not guitar solo and mostly reminds me of Wild Honey or something.
At times I just grow tired of heavy guitars, and when I think of it, I would be happier if there were more songs like this one on it. This album lacks more downbeat tracks.

What do you think...?

At times I grow tired of heavy guitars. An at those times I listen to something else.

Worst U2 album track since... uhhh... forever.

That song made me think of modern Red Hot Chili Peppers material. Not that that's a bad thing. But I can easily see those guys doing a song just like it, but not nearly as well produced. No freaking complaints from me about anything on the new album. I think it's perfect.

It's not that I think this song is horrible... but it is my least favorite song on the album. I would have chosen 'Mercy' in a heartbeat over it. And 'Are You Gonna Wait Forever' as well, for that matter.

But I am not going to complain about a thing. I love this album and I have faith that the other songs will turn up b-sides.

I cannot understand why U2 fans don't love this song. To me it is one of the most interesting tracks on the album.
In a danish newspaper, the reviewer headlined this track as the one that might reveal the "future sound" of U2.
If this is the sound of the future for U2, I would be very happy.
The sound on the other tracks points backwards.
And that is not saying I don't love the album. I think it's soooo much better than ATYCLB.

I thought it was one of the weakest tracks at first. Now it is finally beginning to grow on me.

I don't hate it!..It just hasnt grown on me yet, but I havent had time to really relax and enjoy the CD. and I maybe it would help if I stop pressing "repeat" on my Cd player for City of blinding lights, Sometimes, Love Peace or else, Step closer to knowing and Fast cars (which are the ones I loved at first listen) other than Vertigo..I just have to carefully listen and enjoy the rest of the songs

Just the mix of, the lyrics and Adams bass playing does it for me.
Also the mixed vocals when it gets to, "Brown eyed girl across the street"

Yeah, that line is brilliant...

I love the whole song, and I like where they've placed it on the album. Sort of gives you a chance to "breathe". lol

Guide to How to Like A Man and A Woman:


One, sit down in a dark room.

Two, make yourself a coffee/tea/beer/wine/water or whatever you prefer.

Three, turn up the volume and the bass.

Four, put on A Man and A Woman.

Five, play it loud

Six, if you still don't like, I can't help!
