3. If this song came on the radio and non U2 fans were present, I would lie and say it was someone else. A total embarrassment.
Listen as Hope and Peace try to rhyme,
Listen over marching bands playing out their time.

Went with 7.  I really enjoyed it as the opener for 360 with the buildup and intro.  I think it might be affected some by its place on the tracklisting of NLOTH.

More synthesis songwriting. Similar to Acrobat, it has a crooked rhythm that informs the dramatic rendering of the 'story'. Combine that with a bursting chorus similar to a Beautiful Day idea and we have Breathe. What kind of score does that deserve? I don't know which way the ........When I'm flat on my back, I'll let you know.

I do appreciate the cello and odd time signature. Those lyrics tho....

That cockatoo is rocking out to the solo.

Seriously, look at the timing and think of the solo.

I like the song and I actually thought it worked ok as the 360 opener.  Too bad no one else did.

Breathe hit itís stride on Letterman.

The Edge: ď[Eno] would love to see us making albums a bit more like [Zooropa]. Where we go, ĎYou know what? Weíre not going to second-guess any of this. Letís just go for it.íĒ

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

That was great, thanks for posting.  Funny I somehow missed that performance.... must have been the same week they did a surprise gig on the quad at my alma mater....
