FINALLY, someone else agrees with me that Mercy is "one of the best songs U2 have ever done" and "Some lines in those first verses that are amongst the best Bono has ever created"

God damn I Love Mercy so much

Thank you Mr. Ryan :)

I really like this song. Even though I wasnt wild about the first version (it rambles too much), I would give in if maybe there was some kind of combination of both versions we heard as the final product. There are things in the first version there are good... I just dont like the lack of chorus... and the endless comparisons without bringing all the thoughts together. Which I think the second one at least attempts to do--bring the thoughts together, that is.

Doesn't this better belong in the Feedback forum?

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm done talking about Mercy. It makes me sleepy.

It does belong there so I will move it. Ian will see it there. It is a great piece. I loved it.

I really thought this article was a great, scholarly analysis of the lyrics with excellent description of the emotion connection Ian has with the song. Great job!!
