I rated it as one of the worst songs on the album. Bland and vanilla. Doesn't surprise me it's a Ryan Tedder song.

So it seems Summer of Love May have been written by OneRepublic. Hereís a video of them jamming around with the guitar riff and calling the song ďwest coastĒ .... anyone know any more ? Did they co-write the song? Did OneRepublic simply donate the song to u2?

well that's pretty unprofessional by Tedder

but very disappointing if u2 have effectively bought a song and pretended that it's theirs

the only good outcome of this would be for Tedder and u2 not to work together again

Reading tea leaves elsewhere I think it was written by Bono and Edge and OneRepublic is working on improving it but I could be wrong.

i was thinking this yesterday, if U2 is so desperate for Top 40 teenage relevance and can't get their anymore on their own, they'll have someone write a single for them.

Oh dear.  Bono must love his OneRepublic albums.

There's been a lot of talk about this next song, maybe maybe too much talk - this song is not a u2 song, this song is by Tedder, Ryan Tedder....

I would say it's unprofessional by U2, not Tedder.

At least if they are gonna take someone else's song and call it their own, make it a good one, kinda like they did with Do You Feel Love.

I just checked the song credits on Apple Music. It says written by Paul David Hewson. Scandalous...
