*faints*

I know, I know. I knew that would get such a reaction. I actually find the lyrics for that song interesting. But the music, to me, is a pale rehash of AIWIY. And the production sounds flat and Bono's voice sounds weak, which is a criticism I would level at much of Zooropa. The only thing I particularly like about the music is that big wash of keyboards right at the end...that's kind of cool. But it doesn't redeem the song for me.

Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses is a weak song??? BAH!

It's a beautifully melancholy song, with one of Edge's best rhythm guitar parts ever, and one of Bono's most longing vocals.

Now onto my list:

The Ocean (not much on its own)
Rejoice (blah)
With a Shout (blah again)
Scarlet (man, I really dislike October, who knew? )
Is That All? ( I don't even like talking about that one)
Red Light (those girls singing...)
Elvis Presley and America (come on, even Bono says it's "spew")
Helter Skelter (ewww....)
Love Rescue Me (one of the few U2 songs that bores me)
When Love Comes to Town (God dammit, Bono, you're white, accept it!)
Numb (It's hard to listen to, despite it's sonic adventurousness)
Miami (the only song from POP I skip)

Of the dozens and dozens of songs U2's done, I suppose it's damn good there are only about a dozen I don't really like, and most are from when they were still a very raw group.

Hehe, this is a bad, bad thread.....I like that.

The temple bar version of "Whose gonna ride..." is better than the album but there are many many songs that are worse.....

And what is with all these TTYW haters?!?!?!?! I that song! It's really fun, boo on you who don't like it.
Well, boo on me then. I can listen to it every now and then, but I think it's a little cheesy musically - U2 trying too hard to play the blues, rather than U2 taking blues and melting it into their own style. IMO there were much better songs in the wings that could've/should've replaced it (Luminous Times, Walk To The Water, Spanish Eyes...).

i cannot believe i'm seeing "Trying to throw your arms..."....what is up with that? okay, perhaps there are "stronger" songs on the AB album, but regardless, it's an awesome song imo. someone, please, explain to me why it's such a "weak" and "terrible" song?

Worst? I'll say these are songs that aren't necessarily the "worse", but the ones to which I seldom listen.

1)Some Days Are Better Than Others
2)Tryin' to Throw Your Arms Around the World
3)One Tree Hill
4)Love Rescue Me
5)The Sweetest Thing

I think "clearly" is a gross overstatement.

I feel that Acrobat is the weakest song on the album. I'm happy it was never done live. It's my opinion, there's no "clearly" about it.
