I think I mentioned this last time I still don’t understand why people hate U2, it baffles me that when I speak to any of my friends they change and splutter things like, “Can’t stand them!” “That Bloody Bono” and “They lost it years ago.”
I’m not a massive fan but respect their longevity and the fact their is friendly rivalry between them and Depeche Mode. Is it just not trendy to like them anymore?
This was the lead single from 1991’s “Achtung Baby” album. Bono said “the sound of U2 chopping down the Joshua tree.” Adopting the indie dance/ Big Beat feel of the time, it has some glorious guitar work from the Edge and features Bono’s falsetto.
The B-side is a short but high quality instrumental, from the Bono/Edge soundtrack for an updated Stage version of “Clockwork Orange,” lots of synths and variation.
