Like the first single, "Get On Your Boots," this isn't a great song, but is a very good, solid song that has the makings of a hit. It's a catchy, funky little pop tune with lots of guitar, and if I had randomly heard this, I'm not sure if I would have known it was U2. Bono's vocals are different throughout most of the song, and is only easily recognizable as Bono in parts of the chorus. In fact, I think part of what draws me to this song is that it IS different.
And, as has been reported widely, U2 will be David Letterman's musical guests for an unprecedented five nights the week of March 2nd. The new album will be released here in the States on March 3rd. Really looking forward to getting the whole disc in my hands and working through it, listening to both the music and lyrics...as U2's songs always require much more than a cursory listen.
