Good job, Twilight...it took me a few tries to get the poll thing figured out!
You can see all the polls started by "guest4"...that's me...

I give this song an 8.

Well, it helps that I was on another forum before this one.  :)

This song just came on, and I thought it deserved a rating, but I actually have a hard time rating it because the way it starts and the way it ends are so different. It starts kind of dull and ordinary ... but the ending is just ... numinous. (Yay, I finally get to use that word in a sentence! :D ) So, a 5 for the beginning and a 10 for the end? But it deserves better than a 7, because by the time it's over it's brilliant. So, um ... 9.

Ooops, I just realized I didn't follow the format (all caps, etc.) when creating this thread ... but I don't see a way to edit it. Help?

It's fine, swim how you like.

I think this song is amazing. My top three Zooropa songs are Zooropa, Dirty Day, and The First Time.

A brilliant song....one day i hope u2 will give up trying to write pop rock 'hits' - stop making bad lumpen, turgid shite rawk songs -  stop embarrassing shite like 'the best thing' and put out an album of beautiful, deep, nuanced songs like this.....and if they do it, if they grow the balls and don't dilute it it will be the very definition of late career classic.

8.

10. Very deep lyrics, applies for any kind of love within any kind of relationship... also it reminds me of someone I loved in the past and I still love even when we took separate ways  :D
