I can't stand Book of Your Heart

It's bloody awful. Change my mind.
The Edge: “[Eno] would love to see us making albums a bit more like [Zooropa]. Where we go, ‘You know what? We’re not going to second-guess any of this. Let’s just go for it.’”

U2 Fans: We'd all love to see that, Edge.

Nup. Does nothing for me. I don't get why forum members rave about it.

Well, I like it. Not in their top 25, but it's a damned good song.
What don't you like about it? Just curious...

As a b-side it's ok, and I like the classic jingly Edge guitar, but it just kind of rambles.

Like it, but don’t love it. It definitely is better than about half the songs that made the album though.
Definitive U2 Top 10: 1. One, 2. Bad, 3. With Or Without You, 4. Running to Stand Still, 5. So Cruel, 6. Ultraviolet, 7. I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For, 8. Hawkmoon 269, 9. Red Hill Mining Town, 10. Luminous Times

I love the tune. Its a top its among the top 2-3 tunes on the SoE album
In the garden I was playing the tart
I kissed your lips and broke your heart
You
You were acting like it was the end of the world

Well it's not desperate MOR pop rock hoping the kids will like it ala The Best Thing....

It's not lunpen turgid shite ala American Soul...

I also believe it is one of the songs from that period that Tedder had fuck all to do with.

Hence it being left off the album proper.

Up to the bridge, I find it disjointed and hard to listen to, after that, it's pretty good.  Doesn't move me to want to listen to it again.
