Not *totally* surprising. :P We both loved the song Zooropa before it became 'cool' to when they played it, we both cite Stay and Moment of Surrender among our favourite songs of all time... there are always commonalities! :P

It's never cited as anyone's favourite, but where it is mentioned, it tends to be very highly liked, IMO. :P

Don't know about overrated, but definitely is not that great of a song. Kind of plods along for me, in spite of that loud part.

You wanna talk about plodding along, let's talk So Cruel. Amazing lyrics but COME ON guys, do something interesting to them.

Actually the other reason I like So Cruel is because the music is so simple. The lyrics are the centerpiece of the song.
