Today I wish I'd voted for Stand Up Comedy...this song gets me, somehow!

Soul Rocking Riffy !!!
I'm so glad that someone understands my idiosyncrasies!

There are some awesome sonic moments in there towards the end

Especially that siren-like guitar sound towards the end, and that bridge where the chord progression changes up a bit. It's not too bad of a song, just kind of gets ruined by some Bonoisms, similar to how some of the other songs on the album are (Boots and, to a lesser extent, UC come to mind).

Stand Up, Comedy gets to much criticism.  It's the Crumbs from Your Table of NLOTH.  I enjoy it.

Yeah.  Some of the coolest sounding guitar effects ever in a U2 song.  It's got a real nice run before "Come all ye people"

1. Crazy Tonight - Yes it's cheesy but the solo is fabulous.
2. Breathe - Great Rock N Roll song
3. Cedars of Lebanon - Best closer since their previous album (all are fantastic though!)
