I made this 3 song playlist...

1. Fast Cars
2. Get On Your Boots
3. Vertigo

I can see how people think GOYB could have been on HTDAAB after listening next to Fast Cars.  But I'll tell you, if they open a show with GOYB and Vertigo back-to-back, the place will being going crazy. 

But I'm still on the fence on this song....I agree with many of the less than positive comments like the song is a bit disjointed (like they pieced together some stuff), over-produced, lyrics, verse sounds too much like a ton of other songs, etc. but there are good qualities too....drums, the last 1:30, etc.

Is Bono singing in a higher key than normal?  Just seems different.
