Probably will, although I personally prefer some other songs from the album. Top tune though.

Absolutely. It's the first U2 song to give me the chills from the first note - and make that an amazing feeling. When I first heard it, my first reaction was, "Oh my goodness, this is the best thing I've ever heard!"

I initially rejected it. The word "initially" should tell you what happened next  :)

It is a very good tune. I think it will live on and on

 ;D

Sure is a classic. Sure to be great live too. The single did badly in the UK. Unusual due to the amount of airplay it got over here.
But I love it. Great song off a great album.

It will be remembered in a group along with Beautiful Day, City of Blinding Lights, and Miracle Drug . . . all nice songs for me, but not what I think of U2's classic best.

"Beautiful Day" is in a class of songs better than "COBL" and "Miracle Drug" in my humble opinion. I would place "Magnificent" right next to "Streets".

 Instant classic from the first run through for me.

Yes. Great song. Not the best on the album but close.

I haven't listened to NLOTH in a while and I forget how "Magnificent" goes, so I say no.

I sincerely don't think that's possible jackoffhearts.

It definitely has the potential. Im curious to see the reaction it gets on the tour. Every time Ive heard it live, its gotten better and better.
