I, too, love Cedars, but I understand where detractors of the song are coming from. It's definitely more 'mood' than 'music', although Edge's guitar solo makes up for that somewhat. Cedars is like Bono talking right into my ear as I'm lying in bed or driving alone, and it's not sexual. It just gets right to my soul. But it's true, since Cedars is mostly Bono talking, I cannot imagine any tribute band ever covering this song! Bono's voice is really warm and lush on the track. I'd probably skip Cedars if I'm driving with someone, it takes a lot of 'getting into', even for us real fans. Without knowing the title (beautiful, btw), listeners might be even more clueless about the context.
