Breath .... I tend to have a love hate relationship with this song.  Theeees dayyyyys part along with cocatoos and stocks are just weird,  but on the other hand I still blast it and love the grace inside a sound.
I don't mind the "These Days" but this one verse drives me crazy:

16th of June, Chinese stocks are going up
And I'm coming down with some new Asian virus
Ju Ju man, Ju Ju man

Anybody know if this means something?

I like Miracle Drug apart from that line about the baby's head, which I hate!

Kite is a favorite of mine.  Amazing song.  But I absolutely hate the ending lyrics, they just do not belong in the song.  Drives me crazy.

The last of the rock stars
When hip hop drove the big cars
In the time when new media
Was the big idea
That was the big idea
this

Also the "Ba ba Barbara, Santa Barbara"s.  It would be so much better without that part.

I know they've altered it live but I despise the line:
'I was of the opinion it was out of control', maybe one of their clunkiest lines ever.

The gorgeous Sleep Like A Baby Tonight where he crams in 'Tomorrow dawns like someone else's suicide' in the 1st chorus. Why not sing the line as it was in the 2nd chorus?

I've always felt the same way.

The repeated distorted guitar notes in Love Is Blindness, from 2:34-2:44. The rhythm of it is so frustratingly OFF, and it really takes me out of the song.

Is that when the solo ends?

The cymbal-heavy ending of Bad... I find the cymbals to be very distracting.

Also, I didn't notice this until last week when I listened to it, but there's a sound that recurs constantly throughout the background of LEMON! that sounds like either someone rubbing a Styrafoam cup or someone rocking in a squeaky chair, and I find it hard to listen to the song now because it's distracting and annoying.

I didn't know what you meant so listened again.

[an aside:  I love the video.  Probably my favorite U2 video.]

I think I hear it.  Sounds like a little crank.  They get so into that stuff.  I think it's Eno but I'm not positive.  Listen to him go on and on about how much he liked the messed up drum loop in Moment of Surrender.  This is why sometimes a little less production goes a long way.

Never noticed that before until you mentioned it!

I never did either until I heard it last week! Same with the thing in Bad, I'd listened to the song plenty of times before but that one particular time was when I really heard the cymbal crashes and now I can't stop being annoyed when I hear it.
