Miami was one of those songs that it took me awhile to notice. I'm just now really getting into it, and it's great. Might have something to do with all the POP nostalgia I've been feeling lately.

I like Miami.

I don't 'not like' anything U2 ever did. or ever will.

I love that spliced up, jagged guitar sound (how did Edge do that?) when Bono just lets loose..."MIAMI!!!" That's one of the coolest noises on the entire album, which is saying a lot.

Ugh...Someone once called "Discotheque" the "worst song EVER!" and that really pissed me off. For me, it's all about the POP lovin'!

Hmmm, well Db9, I'd have to say one of my favorites is Even Better Than the Real Thing. It's a rockin song and it brings me up.

Another would be The Unforgettable Fire. I went on a camping/bicycling trip to Northern California with my friends and made a video of the trip. I used The UF as one of the songs on my soundtrack and it was perfect mood music for the beautiful NoCal scenery I had taped.

How 'bout you?

I think it was a pretty good song live. The guitar-work in their cover of Happiness Is A Warm Gun seems to have evolved from it (amazing what they can do to a song by touring with it, isn't it?).

My friends and I used to say that Miami and Mofo were the polar experimental songs on the record......it was kind of like Mofo versus Miami battles....which is better.....I remember a lot of jabbing going on at Popmart when all of us went when both songs were played. Larry Mullen Jr. is awesome with his "When the Levee Breaks" impression.

The song is great, it sounds like Larry played a drum beat and then they laid it down backwards or something. Pre-"New York."

I just love the funk of this song.Its a very polished one unlike the hip hop thing. Just change the lyrics and you have re-invented the punk rock.

imo the best live Miami version comes from the Nuremburg Popmart. It's a soundboard recording so the samples and guitar effects are very amplified. Bono's vocals explode on this version too.

What's with all the Pop bashing? Sure it's no Joshua Tree, but it's still U2. If bands didn't experiment with their music style they would get bland fast (boy bands anyone?) and just drop off the chart.

I like Pop.......Discotheque was the song that got me hooked on U2 in the first place. Pop made me go out and buy Achtung Baby, and then The Joshua Tree.....then the rest. Pop started it all for me.

Do us Pop fans a favor and stop dissing songs like Miami, Discotheque, and Mofo just because they might not be as good as One or Where The Streets Have No Name.

Apples and oranges!
