Rate the Song: Heaven and Hell

Today, we finally begin the very last round of the 90s, with the last six 90s non-album songs (all of which are only quasi-90s songs, coming from the Achtung Baby remaster). The full list of 90s non-album songs is:

Alex Descends into Hell for a Bottle of Milk/Korova 1
Lady with the Spinning Head
Salomé
Where Did It All Go Wrong?
Slow Dancing
Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me
Viva Davidoff
Holy Joe
North and South of the River
I'm Not Your Baby
Two Shots of Happy, One Shot of Sad
Sweetest Thing (new version)
Blow Your House Down
Heaven And Hell
Oh Berlin
Near The Island
Down All The Days
Everybody Loves A Winner

This round will feature Blow Your House Down through Everybody Loves A Winner.

Please rate Heaven and Hell on a scale from 0 to 10, using whatever criteria you feel allows you to best evaluate the song as a whole. I will not set criteria for people to based on, but if you feel like your best evaluation of the merits of a song comes from voting only based on, say, the studio version, go right ahead and vote that way. Full information on the Rate The Song series may be found in this thread.

Have fun! This poll will close in 96 hours.

Not too bad at all. I like it quite a bit but I just feel like Bono tries to do too much vocally/lyrically. If we could've had a 90s Bono vocal then this would be a surefire 10 from me.

6 for the version on the reissue. The version on the Salomé outtakes would score higher- I love that one, even with all of the "F"s. The new version feels like a big mess.

digitize is only doing officially released stuff. if we did all the songs from salome, this will take a year.

don't like the eventually released version myself - but that's not to say I think the unreleased version is some lost CLASSIC - used to really like listening to that one though.

As others have said, nothing special. Bono's vocals, however, are a plus for me. 6.

Both this and Blow Your House Down are much better on the Salome outtakes. I wish they just released the versions with 90s Bono doing the vocals. You can delete all those "F!"and "Chorus!" things he shouts.
