Oooh! Ooooh! Two of my favorite U2 songs are on here!

"Everywhere you go, you shout it!" and "I'm not the only one staring at the sun!".

I knew there was a reason why I liked you.
Well thanks! Let's enjoy SATS together.

Intransigence is all around
Military still in town
Armor plated suits and ties
Daddy just won't say goodbye


Who uses the word intransigence in a song? But I like it!

............and to finish off my favorite verse in the song...........

Referee won't blow the whistle
God is good but will he listen
I'm nearly great but there's something missing
I left it in the duty free
But you never really belonged to me

Fabulous song, brilliant lyrics.

^Best lyrics. Definitely. I love how it doesn't really make sense until you read them out loud and hear the rhyme on "duty free" and "belong to me".

I consider it a lesser song than most of the 00's album tracks.

I think it's purely about the song, and how much you like it, whatever form it takes. If you appreciate a song for its live incarnation, for example, it's entirely proper I think to vote for it.

I don't think I've ever voted for any October song. None of the songs beat any other ones in most polls like this.

It's a shame that you're right with that statement. Some good rock songs on October and With A Shout is the best in my opinion.
