Good song. I don't feel any sentimentality here at all -- I've always heard it as bitter and angry.

I loved this song, when I heard it the first time. I don't understand the hate, can't hear the sentimentality.

One of the things I like about U2 is contrast. Here it is the contrast in the beautiful melody and arrangement and the bitterness and anger in Bono's voice, his vocal is placed forward in the mix, so that it sounds as he is standing right next to you, singing in your ear.

I give it a 10
