This is a GREAT song...the lead guitar, the bass guitar...just can't be beat. and, yeah, drums and vocals rock, too! I may get tomatoes thrown at me, but I'm giving it a 10. Oh, and I will add that the studio version is the best.

This was my least favorite mass-appeal U2 track until Vertigo. 3.
Hold on, people! The man's talking about waste management. That affects the whole damn planet.

10. 10. 10. 10. 10.

Parts of the video haven't aged well. Love the song. Hate that they changed a line for the stupid Best Of release.

Not really a fan of it live anymore.

But it helped man me an uber-fan.
I saw Gloria live. Even if I never see the band live again, at least I saw Gloria live. :)

I have really mixed feeling about this song...

One day I really like it. One day I really hate it.

The dancer during the ZooTV is priceless. Really nice, the 'can't touch it'

You know that the dancer is now Mrs. Edge, right?

Steady.

Not one of the great 90's songs.

A nice nod to madchester but as I say not a jewel from that 90's crown.

10 -  Fantastic Rock song.  Unique in the history of rock.  Paints a cinematic landscape that transports you to another world

6/10

Groovy. Decent lyrics. In my opinion, only Ultraviolet has aged more poorly if we're talking about Achtung Baby as a whole.

O, is that she? I thought it was one of the Numb girls. In that case... you should have taking more dancing lessons

9 for me - took a long time to really get into this - much preferred The Fly, UTEOTW, etc.  But has really grown on me over time.  Also a big shout-out to the Zoo TV era live version (unreachable belly-dancer, Edge's magnificent slide guitar solo, etc.).

7. One of their more daring and inventive songs, but it is too damn overplayed for me to fully appreciate.
