I'm giving Numb an 8. The lyric are words to live by...
(and, yeah, Edge does it SO well!)

4. A bit novel at the time but nothing special for me

10, one of the songs that showcases how I want U2 to be. The songs feels really numb

5. It's different, but it's never done much for me.

I am all for people exercising their right to criticise stuff....I have rated songs in these polls as 'shite' for example and I love to tell it like ibsee it warts and all - but to say something is not a song makes no sense at all to me....

Really an 8.5, but rounded up to a 9.

They's NEVER take a chance like this now.
I saw Gloria live. Even if I never see the band live again, at least I saw Gloria live. :)

I love how weird and left-field this song is. Truly one of the most bold in their entire career.

8/10.  One of U2's most unique tracks.

I didn't get this either...maybe the statement is because the "song" is more "said" than "sung"? Ah, jeez, that didn't make sense at all, did it?
