ABOY rocks

Many people have questioned why ABOY is a single. Most people think it's probably one of the weaker songs on the album. But I love this song. It is just pure rock, pure raw, kick ass song. It's also a good radio song, it's short and catchy. Unfortunately, I don't think it will be a big hit, but I'm hoping that non U2 fans will give it a listen on the radio and think, 'mmm, this song rocks'

Many people think that "Sometimes You Can't Make it On Your Own" is the next "One", a huge pop hit. But I think it will underachieve on the charts. I love that song, though, but I don't think it will get as much airplay as people hope it will. I hope I am wrong, though, because it's just a heartfelt, beautiful tune.

Exactly. I think that "Sometimes" is a very overrated song. Its nice, but not radio friendly. Definately not the next one. You may not think its overrated, but I do.

What makes you say that "MOST people think its one of the weaker tracks on the album"? I haven't gotten that impression at all.

I'm not a fan of this song at all. That doesn't mean I think Sometimes should be a single. Nothing screams RADIO FLOP like that one.

I agree that while Sometimes is a beautiful song, it's not radio friendly at all. At the same time, I don't want All Because of You to be the next single either.

ABOY is totally awesome. It makes me proud to be a U2 fan!
If I was to play a song off the new album to someone who was'nt already a fan, this would be the song.

Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own is soooo overrated.
But I never got why people disliked Vertigo as the first single. Not only is it a great song, it has much more - "we're back in action" attitude than All Because of You, which is probably the only other alternative.
And that's what All Because Of You lacks, I think. It's lyrics don't actually say anything. It has no theme, it's just a rock song, a good rock song, but I think Vertigo has a bit more attitude.

I just love “All Because Of You” and believe the single could even out sell “Vertigo”.

I feel the opposite way. Sometimes will flop as a single. It starts off slow and doesn't 'grab' you. Anyone who doesn't know the touching story behind it will find it sappy and dull, especially younger people. I hope they don't tarnish the image of this beautiful tribute by throwing it to the wolves of the charts

That's exactly what I said. How's that opposite?

ABOY = Dull, tries too hard to be a rocking song, uninspiring to me, sounds loud but no greatness behind it.

Sometimes = Nice song. TERRIBLE single, will flop.
