From the part where Bono sings " And I miss you when you're not around.." to the last of the "woo ooh wooh"'s after the first verse is one of the greatest bits in any U2 song.

I'm glad this song is doing so well. This is the first U2 song that I really fell in love with. It was something like the third U2 song that I ever heard, and it was so incredibly special to me when I did hear it. It's still really special to me. I actually like it better than Streets.

I think my 7 was meant to be an 8, sorry Dig. I can't imagine why I'd give this song a 7.

10. Love love love this one. Like a few others, it's the first U2 song (other than One) that I really loved. Such a great track, with great lyrics and great music. Edge really shines here.

Only one (albeit small) gripe here, and that's the extremely high backing vocals in the chorus. On 360, they were extremely present.

My favorite performance is the one from under the Brooklyn Bridge. That entire show is U2 in top form.

Easily the best on the album. Too bad Vertigo is more well known.

A fantastic song. It's maybe not as good after 300 listens or so... but I still remember my reaction the first time I heard it. Beautiful.

Best thing on HTDAAB along with Yahweh, imo. A real hark-back to my fave U2 era (mid-late 80s) musically, so like one of those times you meet someone new & click like you've known them all your life.
