Window In The Skies

One of my top 5 U2 songs of all time ... criminally underrated

I've always liked this song.  Is it from the Atomic Bomb sessions?

No it's from Rick Rubin sessions

I think the only other track that came out was a cover of The Skids 'The Saints are Coming' with Green Day. The other tracks were 'put aside'

O, this is I think the first song of U2 I heard in my life.

Lets see, I was, ehh, 9 years old when it came out. I remember walking around the playground with 'o can't you what love has done and what it's doing to me'. I think I only knew the translation of 'love' and 'me', so the rest was phonetic, probably. But it was enough. :)

It was a nice surprise when I discovered the song when I was digging U2; I knew that song!

Love this song. This is the kind of joyful U2 song that I like, so much more real than YTBTAM.

no i think the the Rubin sessions were pre-Bomb, they scrapped them and recorded Bomb then just put this out as a new song for the 18 Singles comp. I love this song too, the video is so great.

I adore WITS.

I love Best Thing too.

I'm in this video. True.
Filmed crowd scenes in a Melbourne pub in 2006.

Looong, boring day.
