5- never seek this song out to listen to but don't think it's bad.  Most of Pop feels this way to me.

For me, WUDM is one of the best songs on the album.

Good bump.

I admit it, in 1997 I did not rate this song highly.

I was wrong.

Bono at his best. An introspective confession, and one of the most personal things he's ever written.

8/10
