I guess lots of people disagree..

It's a funny number but not more than a B-side, it would be crap if it was on the album.

I can't say that it is U2's best work, but I can say that it is one of their best B-sides. If this can't make the album, then I really have some high expectations for the songs that are on there.

No way, while it is all just opinion, I found it weaker than most of the 90's b-sides (not counting some of the dreadful covers).

Vertigo kicks its ass becuase AYGWF is kinda boring and that echo effect really annoys me.

AYGWF is a very weak track. The melody is boring and goes nowhere. It only starts to get interesting in the bridge but then goes nowhere. The guitar is LOUD and that is what makes this song worthwhile. Although this sounds similar to 90's B-sides, the quality of this song just does not compare.

Really, you like it better than Vertigo?! Well each their own. I do like it though and think the guitar it cool but the lyrics don't do it for me i guess.

Feels unfinished. There seems to be a chance it could have been great particularly how Bono treats the first lyrics. The swaying could have been taken further as a treatment in the song. Good song overall but pisses me off that we still have not had any decent snippets from the band at u2.com.

I'm undecided as to whether I prefer AYGWF or Vertigo.

Are You Gonna Wait Forever
- better lyrics
- better guitar

Vertigo
- better vocals
- better bass

So ... I really don't know. They're both amazing tracks.

AYGWF? is a good song, but no way can it be put alongside Vertigo.

I think that Vertigo is better produce, and more finished. That said I really am digging AYGWF. Nice guitar and nice drumming by Larry. He really can play the RAWK drum patterns.
