When you see the handful of ridiculously negative posts about this song you can see how he band can't win. No matter what they do, several hate it.

Personally, I'm with he majority who love this. One of the nicest, most naturally melodic tunes they've done in a long time. I don't understand how anyone hates his even if you find it a bit bland. Hate seems harsh. I'm just loving it. Find it way stronger than California.

If the majority likes the new tunes, then I am with the majority. Though, like most, my love for U2 can be blind ;)

Are we sure it's not another "Best thing" video?

Too easy.

Low blow. They still haven’t released the other 15-20 versions of the song yet.

;D
Maybe the only version of this song I'm looking forward to is the one that's surrounded by 11 other different songs.

I find it interesting that over that last 15 years or so almost all of my first listens to new U2 include, wind, rain, surf...radio, radio, radio...

Is this coming out on Halloween? There's a dancing skeleton in the background.

I like Little things

I really like Best thing

I refuse to listen to that horrible version of Blackout

However based on another sketchy YouTube this sounds like the worst of the 4. A bad Killers song, or dare I say it... The Script!!

Ugh, think I just puked in my mouth with that last comparison.

Sounds nothing like the script, or Coldplay or the killers for that matter, thankfully. For me, it's the best of the 4 we've heard so far.

We're all kind of guessing but I hope your guess is better than mine. Shan't be listening to that clip again!

Admittedly, On second listen, I can see the Coldplay/killers hints, but not the script. The chorus sounds better than the verse. It's only a snippet of the song though, so we can't give it a proper review yet.

I'll join you lazy in the shan't be listening again and I have a couple things to add:

1. It's unfortunate that security didn't do a better job of keeping this leak from happening, unless that was leaked intentionally... I don't want to hear this song again until it is released, as Best Thing was ruined by the early leaks, for me anyway. That said, GOOYOW as a song, whether we like it or not, I think has the biggest chance (so far) of being a radio hit today (whatever that means).

2. As I have said, I can listen to 99% of the U2 library and I am a pretty biased fan. As I've noted some of the lyrics to Little Things matched up with then end of my Mom's life bad dementia for 2 years so "anger and grieving" was interesting to start hearing this song 3 days before God finally took her~ But yes, I actually really like the Sinatra nod with that tune. Blackout, echo most here, need to hear it (hopefully) without the crowd noise. Also hoping Best Thing has a longer version on the LP as we all seem to agree 'it ends before it should'.

Another bland pop offering from the band. I really fear u2 are about to release their weakestst ever album.....based on the 4 songs we have heard.

Why so negative?

It's his opinion. I dislike mushrooms. Is that "negative" too?
