Rate a song: GET OUT OF YOUR OWN WAY
« on: March 03, 2018, 06:02:47 AM »
Well, this is quite the controversial one, isn't it? I did NOT like the video, but I have grown to like the song. I admit, it took me awhile to like it. I'm going to give it a 6. If we were voting on the vid, I'd give it a 1.

It's no classic, but it's a good quality song, I like the 2nd verse a lot.  The chorus is a bit weak, as it is on many of U2's recent efforts.  I'll give it 7.

So, I was just out walking a dog (under a BEAUTIFUL MOON!) and this song was stuck in my head, so I was singing it to her...she looked up at me like "that's not a very good song" and I just said WHATEVER!

THEN, I remembered an tha saying that he caught himself singing this song in the shower. Just that thought (not the visual, please!) - priceless!

It certainly is the most earwormy of tracks on SOE for me...

If even a dog doesn't like it, and an tha sings it in the shower, it must be a nailed-on 1.  Can I change my vote?  :P

I think Best Thing is catchier and more earwormy.

If only the band would take their own advice .
I saw Gloria live. Even if I never see the band live again, at least I saw Gloria live. :)

8 -  Of all the tracks on SOE i get pleasantly lost in the music.  Its hypnoptic chant format can zonk you out.  I love the guitar outro

One of U2's better "pop" songs in this era, even though they do steal the rhythm section from BD.

1/10

Awful, awful, awful... made complete with a pitifully bad video. A microcosm of everything wrong with modern-day U2. Song recycling (GOOYOW is very reminiscent of Beautiful Day), poorly-executed political commentary, on-the-nose lyricism, adult contemporary stylings, basic pop structure, simplified playing (very dumbed-down)...

This.

The song whilst musically as limp as cheap sliced bread did have a catchy charm as my now famous shower renditions showed....but it became boring very quickly and has the staying power of pound shop batteries....

I'll give it 3 just for being a little bit catchy for a little while.....

6- still too early to tell where it will stand with all the tracks from the other albums
