I've just never cared for the song.  One of my least favorites on Pop.
I feel my luck could change.

Not the most memorable but it does have an incredible atmosphere. It sounds mind-blowing through headphones.

I surprise myself with this, but a 9.

I love the atmosphere. Love the haunting background vocals. Very Gavin Friday - Shag Tobacco album-ish.

A great U2 slow song. Sexy, brooding, earthy, simmering, confident.

"Tonight the moon is a mirrorball
Light flickers from across the hall
Who'll catch the star when it falls
If you wear that velvet dress"

Hell, I'm a married, hetero man and even I'd be slightly tempted before slapping myself in the face.

I mean God, I look awful in velvet.
I saw Gloria live. Even if I never see the band live again, at least I saw Gloria live. :)

8 - and as Idiophone said, a must-listen with headphones
The music will provide the light you cannot resist

I gave it a 9 although I actually should have given it a 10, it's a perfect song really! Brooding, atmospheric and sexy! I love the whole feel of the song.

O, man. You're not the only one. Well, I'm not married. But I'd like to attract women with this.

I never wanted to say this. My friends shouldn't find this out. But now is the time to tell. That infinite delay solo is just a musically description of an orgasm. Sorry if this ruined it for you

Gave it a 10

It's one of my favourite songs on Pop.  It's understated, brooding and emotive.

8/10

Understated, simple, powerful. That's what U2 does best.
