So many better ones to play. This is weak. Thank you.

An Irish friend told me this one: what's the difference between Bono and God? Answer: God doesn't wander around Dublin thinking he's Bono.

Indeed, this is great and it never gets old. I must crank the volume whenever anything from this album comes up. They never came close to this level in any of their later albums.

So I'm gonna state the obvious just in case folks haven't noticed it:
This is a religious song, and Bono is simply singing about God while using the example of a woman. It has nothing to do with how a woman moves.

God works in mysterious ways. If you want to kiss the sky, better learn how to kneel. Etc.

From that perspective, it's a really well-written song. I'm not a big U2 fan, except for Unforgettable Fire, but I gotta respect the craft here.

 
You may find this interpretation obvious.  I find it to be more than a bit of a stretch.  Why would they feel the need to disguise "God works in mysterious ways" as "She moves in mysterious ways"?

You've taken the "better learn how to kneel" line out of its context.

I've noticed the similarity to the old saw, but that hardly makes it a song about the supernatural.

I agree, at one time, one time only, even then they had a writer, a producer and an orchestra.

The majority of us folks who recognize that this is one of the all time greatest bands  are silent on these comment pages.

But this song is a 7.4

Outstanding - I went through a Not Like the Album So Much phase during the mid-90's, even though I saw them in Charlotte on the 2nd date of the Achtung tour. But the revisiting just kills it. No be bagging on those who hate the Bono and the U2 - the bigger your stage, the more the back bleachers boo. You don't have to like them at all, but if you don't - well, you're an idiot. Ha! No - just an elitist. If they'd sold 20 million less albums you'd probably love them - some people love to take a position just because it's contrary to what "everyone else thinks". A breathtaking, world-changing band. My two cents.
