Not sure it's their worst, but it's nowhere near the caliber of some that have been ignored.

Not a big fan of that song either but I like Edge's guitar sound and it's pretty laid back on the whole

Hmm, I don't know.

NLOTH & either Real Thing or Miracle Drug? I can be swayed, does Real Thing need votes?

Went NLOTH & Miracle Drug.

Maybe should have went Real Thing, I'd like NLOTH and EBTTRT to beat Heartland. I like Heartland but think those two are slightly better.

Lemon, because it's a great song that is held in rightly high esteem by many fans?

I'm really not trying to be snobby or anything.  And I like Lemon (unlike Miami).  I just can't understand why people find it so incredibly, well, incredible.  I don't understand.

Musically, it's easily the most daring thing U2 has ever done. It's barely recognizable as U2 in a way that makes Achtung Baby jealous. Bono singing entirely in falsetto is also so ballsy it's admirable.

Lyrically it's stunning. One of Bono's finest works. It's about so many things. The aching loss and yearning for a lost loved one captured electronically as an image. The near beatification that can occur from being able to always access an image, moving no less, of that loved one. And simultaneously it's about man seeking to transcend their limitations and death itself through technology.

It's a brilliant, brilliant song.

I am a bit suspicious, however, that a few of the lines were penned by Eno.  Still great lyrically beginning to end, though.
