Beautiful Day Appreciation.....again.

Yes, this thread has been made several time before...most likely by me in fact , but it's worth doing again.

Im my not so humble opinion, Beautiful Day is one of U2's finest moments, and my personal favorite song of theirs. Everything about it is perfect to me, and it has a very special personal connection as well. It's the song the started it all for me. Got me hooked on U2, and genuinely interested in music for the first time, which even further led me to study audio production in college and make this stuff my career. So yeah, it's kinda special. It's a song that gave birth to an entire new generation of U2 fans, so that's something to be proud of. The studio verison is near perfection, but certain live versions simply surpass reality.

Live 8 is probably my personal favorite performance of this song. Watch. And appreciate.

I looooooooooooove it. It's still one of U2's best live songs. Incredible. Seeing it first hand was a slap in the face with a big hug afterwards.

Beautiful Day is the song that got me into U2... It is a very special song to me... I love U2's music and it is mostly what i listen too but Beautiful Day still remains my favorite. The whole piece is so uplifting and raises the hairs on the back of my neck like no other song...

From Start to finish this song is so Special!

No arguing or even kindly discussing.

Beautiful Day kicks ass, period. All of it.

Beautiful Day is possibly my favorite U2 song, and probably my favorite Bono lyric.
"What you don't have, you don't need it now / What you don't know, you can feel it somehow."
It would seem that one needs that mentality to survive as a graduate student.

After Kite, BD is the best U2 song since the early 90s.

agreed

one of the best anyhow

so uplifting. It's the song that cemented U2 as my favourite band ever (it started with Pop but I was getting into crappy top 40 stuff for awhile before ATYCLB) and really helped me get into better music in general. Definitely a classic.

although it's definately not my favourite song and at first I didn't like it that much it did grow on me and I grew to love it.

It's also the song which made me so happy when it first came out.. U2 were popular again and it was such a relief as we all were waiting for years for U2 to finally gain back the attention they had in the early 90's

It kind of made me feel secure again as some people I knew perked there heads up and realised.. shit U2 are really great

Not my favourite song off ATYCLB but definitely a classic,

I really love the video, as well - nothing new or spectacular but I just feel that it has this really pure, pristine, joyous feeling about it. Hard to put in words.
