It's funny to hear people say "best single since the fly". I loved The Fly from the moment I heard it, but I was in the minority back then.

i've listened to it 4 times now. i'm loving it! it's definitely more layered and not as immediate as say, vertigo. it's a grower, and this is good news. love the layers of guitar, the drums, and the chorus is growing all the time. it's a little gem of a song, a good sign of things to come, i hope! and not in the slightest a safe song. thanks lads!

Have got it on constant repeat on my PC and it's growing stronger with every listen and as someone said earlier it is layered, hearing different things each time.

the chorus could..be...more...climatic? for me...all the "you don't know how beautiful you are"s...bit of an anti-chorus.

Besides Bono singing "beautiful" AGAIN, that's actually one of my favorite things about the song.  It's the restraint...then--for only half a second--the bridge slides into a major chord (B & E harmonizing "beautiful") only to switch back.  In a song like this, I think a "Big-U2-Chorus" would be grating after the 20th listen.  This song ebbs and flows.  The unusual song structure doesn't hurt either.

Definitely, definitely better than Vertigo to my ears.

Future needs a big kiss
Winds blow with a twist
Never seen a move like this
Can you see it too
Night is falling everywhere
Rockets hit the funfair
Satan loves a bomb scare
But it won't scare you

Hey...Sexy Boots
Get on your Boots
Yeah...

Free me from the dark dream
Candy bars, ice cream
All the kids are screaming but the ghosts arent real
Heres what you gotta be
Love & community
Laughter is eternity if the joy is real

You dont know how beautiful
You dont know how beautiful
You are...
You dont know
You get it do you
You dont know
How beautiful you are...

If someones into blowing up
Were into growing up
Women are the future
All the big revelations
Ive gotta submarine
Youve got gasoline
I dont wanna talk about wars between nations
Not right now

Sexy Boots
Get on your Boots
Yeah...
Foxy boots

You dont know how beautiful
You dont know how beautiful
You are...

Sexy Boots
I dont wanna talk about wars

Let me in the sound
Let me in the sound
Let me in the sound
My God Im going down
I dont wanna drown now
Let me in the sound

Let me in the sound
Let me in the sound
Let me in the sound

Get on your Boots
Get on your Boots
Yeah...

If you expect that God enters the room .... God is not reliable. But being God, you can not complain.

I love it. Very White Album in places, eg vocal harmonies in "how beautiful you are".

Interesting reactions to quite possibly U2s worst single ever.
