Pete Fenelon, York
For a while, U2 were the most important rock band in the world, and this song comes from that period; then they started BELIEVING they were the most important rock band in the world and started making pretentious, hollow, tiresome songs.

Anthony Bentley, Darwen
For me, one of the most powerful songs ever writtne, even though bono says that when he listens to his early songs all he hears is ''unfinished lyrics'', this song is more finished than it ever could be.

Jack Carfrae, Colchester
A universally appealing, yet truly soul stirring legend of a track. One of the salvations of music of the 1980s.

Dan, Devon
From a thoughtful reverie it builds to a climax of emotional tumult and outpouring.

Mik, Leicester
Lyrically fantastic, U2's best song by quite some way.

this song reminds me of love as although you may love something it doesnt mean you can live without it
