SECONDS
« on: March 01, 2020, 09:37:41 AM »
This song...if I was forced to rate U2 songs from best to worst, this song would be in my bottom five. I DO like the bass line. But, the song just bores me.
Sure, bombs are bad...not arguing that at all.
Anyone else?

Not a 'Love it' option?

So I ticked 'Like it'.

A bit repetitive but the beat & passion makes up for that.

As a teenager, thought the middle section was cool. Come to think of it, I still do.

Sorry, I should have made a "love it" option...just added it, and you can change your vote if you'd like!

Love it, one of the first deep cuts I remember discovering and really liking.  Love the "I wanna be an air force ranger" part and how the band comes in and plays in time with it afterwards.  Also, I like those wispy background vocals and the bassline.

'War' needed a more laid back song after the loud and proud opener 'Sunday Bloody Sunday' and before the classic 'New Years Day'.

'Seconds' was that perfect song & is also a good little stand alone song.

Love the kick.
Love the drums.
Love the acoustic guitar.
Love the harmonics.
Love that Edge is singing (shame on you Riffie !)  :P
A dangerous idea that almost makes sense...
