I love this song. But, since I'm trying to be honest, I'll only give it a 9.

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

On its own it's nothing terribly memorable but within the context of the album it's stunning.

4 Never really got it. Like the idea that Bono did a bit of improvising on the track but it meanders away to nothing for me.

Easily one of my favourite U2 songs - another example of how to me u2 are at their best when doing abstract or alternative stuff.

Sonically the most interesting thing they did in the 80's.

7   Its the original, polarizing, WTF U2 track.  And it sounds great 34 years later.

This means Stand Up Comedy will be praised as an excellent track in 2043.

Always liked it. And highlights that after War U2 did not play it safe.

7.  Inventive U2.  Ah, the adventurousness of youth.
