I think Always is a decent tune but Beautiful Day is a far superior track.

I like "Always"...but "Beautiful Day" was a smarter choice. I think that just has a lot more mass appeal.

i prefer always, but i think beautiful day was the right choice to release as a single. always does sound rather unfinished, but perhaps for me that's part of its charm

Always is awesome. I like it just as much as I do Beautiful Day (although that may be just because Beautiful Day has gotten old). I actually like the cheesiness in Always. Songs like Beautiful Day and Window in the Skies are already pretty cheesy, a little more doesn't hurt. It's already a pretty cheesy theme in the first place, might as well embrace it.

But no, it would not have been as popular as Beautiful Day. I still think Always would have been a pretty decent song had it been finished, and it definitely wouldn't have been the worst comeback single ever...

Man, BD has become such a key element in their "comeback." Who knows what would have happened...
QFT. Maybe they would've worked a little more on Always if it didn't make the change into BD. But as it is, there's just so little to Always compared to BD--both sonically and thematically. In both respects, Beautiful Day so perfectly matches the rebirth of U2 from the dark, satirical 90s.
