Peace On Earth

Oh, you seem to have misunderstood the question. It's about the worst song title, not the worst song, U2 has ever written.

It's a super heavyweight contender for any 'worst........' discussion, it's the Mohamed Ali of crap

You'll have to excuse me, I gotta go cut some trees down and use them on my enemies.

I thought this thread won't explicitly have any song bashing, because I avoid such threads. PoE is a great song, once you get into the groove for it. (try it at 3am when it's quiet, and there's no one around, any you're not reaching for Stay). The starting sounds like snowflakes being shaken from a can of powdered sugar, if that names sense. And those names, are the victims of the Omaha bombing, right? "Their lives are bigger than, any big idea"  :'(

edit: damn quoting thingies...

I think "Elvis Ate America" is tactless though. I mean, the guy had a big weight problem toward the end of his career/life, but there's no need to...  ;)

That's Frank Sinatra's title, not U2's.

What do you mean? As I understand it U2 wrote it (and presumably titled it), right?

Well I'll be damned. All this time I thought the song was a cover.

Sorry, mate, sentiment can't save the song for me, I think it's rubbish. Meaningless lyrics and poor singing.

I'm not typically going to ever defend 'Peace on Earth', but I'm not sure that listing the lives of people who died in the Omagh Bombing and saying 'Their lives are bigger than any big idea' really qualifies as meaningless - at least in comparison to quite a lot of U2's catalogue, from Some Days Are Better Than Others to Elevation.

Yeah, I understand that part. But a lot of the rest of the lyric is just kind of inane. I mean, "where there was trees [grammatical error] we'd tear them down and use them on our enemies"?

Plus it's sung poorly.

Totally random, but I have to know- is ":if I were able" in Crumbs From Your Table a grammatical erorr also? Okay, jusdt being random. :D

Topic.
I'l Go Crazy If I Don't Go Crazy Tonight is a needlessly long title
Some Days Are Better Than Others, I don;t really like...
Stuck In A Moment You Can't Get Out Of- also unecessarily long, the only thing about this song that annoys me
Love And Peace Or Else is a silly title.
