This one is just a sloppy bowl of fun.  One of the most perky U2 songs ever.
Not much more than that.  Reminds me of a 90s one-hit wonder but with only regional appeal.

3/10

This song's catchy, but not really fitting with anything else that U2 did at the time. It's clearly the outpouring from a challenged band, struggling to reinvent itself.

5/10 fun and throwaway b-side at best. It's no Lady with the Spinning Head is it?

Sounds like an advertising jingle.

A fun song of which I always thought that the line "Did you really have your fun" was "Did you really give a f*ck."



 
I saw Gloria live. Even if I never see the band live again, at least I saw Gloria live. :)

"Perky" is the perfect descriptor. I have an affinity for this track, but it's undeniably B-side material. The processed yelp that opens the track sounds so cool.

Lol, these are some of the funnier descriptions I've read. Even so, I'm only giving it a 4.
