Sometimes Bono makes it hard to clearly hear the "G", perhaps? :D

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.

Beautiful Day is in the same category with Streets no doubt...right next to COBL and Magnificent

It's a good song, but outside of hardcore fan base it will be forgotten.

Me neither. The more casual fans who hear it in concert will love it once they hear it.

the casual fan would like anything they play because they are great live.

Magnificent is not in the same class as WOWY, Beautiful day, Sunday Bloody Sunday.  It's pleasant and good, but doesn't add much to the cannon as it's a fairly conventional U2 song.  the groove is pretty sweet though.

But live greatness is what helped put the songs above over the top into legend status.

I get your point but I think it should still be considered a classic. It's better than "Even Better Than The Real Thing" in my opinion and I love that song. It might be as good as "ISHFWILF" but that's perhaps questionable.. It's a classic U2 song though, just not the best ever U2 song.

I love it!

WOWY, ISHFWILF, Beautiful Day, One...the recordings are classics and they'd be part of the rock cannon even if the live versions were no good.  ISHFWILF is maybe the greatest song ever written, it's in the Premiership while Magnificent is the champion of major league soccer.
