I have always loved Wild Honey from the very first time I heard it.

It has a bar in 9/8.

And it doesn't suck as much as IALW or Stuck.

I really love the catchiness of this song, yes some of the lyrics are a little strange but I think the song is really underrated.

IMO I think this is the best part of the song:

Did I know you, did I know you even then
Before the clocks kept time, before the world was made
From the cruel sun you were my shelter
You were my shelter and my shade

It's definitely Beatles mixed with Van Morrison. Great song that gets a terrible rep round these parts. U2 has the right to loosen up and have some fun every now and then. It doesn't always have to be about the BIG arena sound, and the BIG message. If you like this song, then there's no reason why you shouldn't like Some Days. Not only is that song better than this one, it's a classic. In my book.

It's incredible , that 1st time I heard ATYCLB I felt this and kept going , when I hear , I kinda ask myself "Is this really U2 ? "Coz It does sound so much like Beatles , much more than WITS .

How could I have missed this thread?

I LOOOOOOVE this song. It's perfect. Catchy, fun, stupid, etc...Still, it's one of U2's most inspired pop moments.
