Worst U2 song?
« on: January 21, 2016, 06:13:35 PM »
This should be interesting... the only U2 song I actively dislike is Wild Honey. Funny because that's also the name of the only Beatles song I hate.

I really always disliked Peace on Earth, because it sounded INCREDIBLY cheesy. It's the only song I've never found anything redeeming about.

Trip Through Your Wires, far and away. Even crap songs like Red Light and Refugee had good musical ideas for foundations - they were just executed horribly. TTYW's just a burning dung pile from top to bottom.

A Man and A Woman and Peace On Earth are the only songs I genuinely can't sit through.
A Man ... sounds so dreary like something you'd hear in a fashionable boutique in the 80's ... not a good thing by the way.
Peace On Earth is just so corny it makes my toes curl.

The Sweetest Thing. Not a bad tune on the face of it but this song is evil. If it wasn't for the good press the band got for "returning to the classic U2 sound" with this song then I believe I wouldn't still be saying that POP is their last great album.
This song stopped U2s creative trajectory dead in its tracks and deserves to have every copy burned as a result. I would even fund a King Herod stylee search for the last copy just to get even!

I like it; they took an pretty average b-side from TJT and gave it a new lease of life with a more pensive vocal recording from Bono, and lovely musical touches from the Edge's guitars.
