People have been burned at the stake for less than this terrible terrible take.

A Day Without Me is the Boots of Boy

Only in that they are both lead singles.  In absolutely every other respect, no.
There's a bible verse,
says the last one shall be first.
Well, if that verse is true,
there's hope for me and you.

A Day Without Me is a GREAT song! Boots (even in my highly U2-prejudiced opinion) is not that great (but I still like it)

Truth. The song is annoying and far and away the worst of Boy. Edge's riff sounds like the first thing a guitarist trying out a delay would noodle out.

Exactly. There is no Boots on Boy.
I saw Gloria live. Even if I never see the band live again, at least I saw Gloria live. :)

sort of off topic but i am listening to war right now and its really good

think i will make it my next purchase

i know people say things at times they don't really mean

memories are often lost in places you don't think you can ever find them again and anyway how would you even know?

until you hear a sound, see or smell, all things that bring you back to a place you thought you'd never be again

saltwater wasn't good when you accidentally swallowed it that time in your youth...but the soul can really use a dose of that cosmic reminder or majeure
there are demons in the broad day light

Yeah but live, Boots still sucks. ADWM was great live.
Listen as Hope and Peace try to rhyme,
Listen over marching bands playing out their time.

ADWM is the sound of a band who didn't know anything
GOYB is the sound of a band who should know better

ADWM>>>GOYB. Live or any other way.

I keep coming back to how young they were when they dropped ADWM.

Started a landslide in my ego,
I look from the outside
To the world I left behind.

<Cue BB King line here>

And I LOVE it at the Red Rocks show where, during that break in the song, Bono says that "I won't forget this evening" line (90 seconds in).

Listen as Hope and Peace try to rhyme,
Listen over marching bands playing out their time.
