    I've heard alot of people talking about how good this song is, and it's a decent song, I have one problem with it. It's a rip job of the Supremes' "You Keep Me Hanging On"! Am I the only one who noticed this?
     
  2. I have a problem with Bono's spanish...
     
  3. 1! 2! 3! 14!

    I love it.



    Probably pick up the cd eventually.

    When I saw that I asked myself in disbelief "Is this really a new U2 song?!" Total suckage.

    I like the style. Very different from their previous stuff. Good, high-energy stuff.

    Somehow, I don't think that they are being serious with the Spanish in this song... just a hunch. I like the energy of it though.
    As an English speaking human, I welcome any Spanish speaking band to have similar fun with my language.
    Nice big wide-open bass sound from Mr. Clayton!!!

    That's interesting...I thought his bass sound was atrocious.
    :p

    Atrocious? I think that it harkens back to the sound that he had on the first three records. It is a powerful slightly out-of-control sound that I think works well in the song. I actually LIKE these types of sounds. At least it isn't just another Warwick swimming in a sea of low mids.
