Maybe...maybe not.

I don't dislike the song, bu I just can't get used to the boring and repeating chorus...

amazing song. I kind of have to be in a certain mood to listen to it, but it's truly remarkable.

it is a good song, but i think it is overshadowed by the likes of Vertigo, Miracle Drug, SYCMIOYO, COBL and Yahweh.

It certainly does not have the same impact (on me anyway) that Zooropa's 'The First Time' had.......

One Step Closer to Knowing is beautifully understated

Some listeners are short-sighted. OSC is a beautifully, transcendant song, that goes way beyond is slow temp and understated vocal. It's a hymn that works much better than Peace On Earth or The Playboy Mansion. I'm glad they stripped it down.

OSC is a gem.....only U2 could have a catalouge w/ simple, soft, atmospheric songs that never see the light of day and no one, absoultely no one outside this little U2 world would know about

One Step Closer
The First Time
So Cruel
Love is Blindness
Heartland
Mothers of the Disappeared
Promenade
MLK
North and South of the River
Drowning Man
Tomorrow
October
Scarlet
An Cat Dubh/Into the Heart
The OCean
Shadows and Tall Trees

It's endless........

Some people think it's soundtrak to coma (it's on that favourite page which is rediscovered each week ), but to me it's The First Time Part II... Some songs don't need ringing guitars and monsterous riffs, their beauty is so simple -- it amazes me.

Please... OSC is much better than Grace. It doesn't have dumb rhyming sequences like blame-shame, walk-chalk-talk, hips-lips-skips-fingertips. God, does Grace suck!

Compare it with the genius of...

Sleep
Sleep tonight
And may your dreams
Be realized
If the thunder cloud
Passes rain
So let it rain
Rain down on him
So let it be
So let it be

Sleep
Sleep tonight
And may your dreams
Be realized
If the thundercloud
Passes rain
So let it rain
Let it rain
Rain on him
