    Great song, even better album.

  U2 have forgotten how to make good songs for a long long time.

In Vancouver, thousands of fans waited 2 to 3 hours outside the venue due to an anti-scalping initiative, which meant that virtually every one of the 50,000 fans had to show their credit card # matched the number on the ticket. If not, they were turned away. Because of the delays this caused, most of the fans (many of who paid 100s of $ for their tix) missed the opening act, Mumford & Sons. Others were told, after waiting for hours, that they were in the wrong lineup. Lame!
My advice, if they're doing the same thing in your town, get there early!
I love the idea of putting the scalpers out of business, but there has to be a better way.

Studying abroad in Galway, Ireland in 1987....and great memories of listening to this album (on a cassette in my Walkman) on the way to classes.

Absolutely Bill, great album, but......I thought I heard you say the album is 40 years old this month, but I think you meant to say 30 years.
But, my hearing is not so good at 63 years after high volume listening of so many hard rock songs. RP is keeping me young and mellow in my old age, thank you very much.

 
What?  What??

You scared me for a minute.  :D

Still loving this album and RP!

 
I already have too many lost decades, let's not rush it...

After a morning of getting kids off to school, this is the perfect song to recalibrate.

Well put. While I appreciate virtuosity and groundbreaking, music doesn't have to be either to strongly resonate you. Leo Kotke's skill blows me away... yet I own none of his records. I respect how the Sex Pistols broke new ground, but aren't particularly fond of their music. U2 on the other hand, at the right moment, particularly this cd, could elicit a strong emotional reaction, something I find rare in music.

Put another way, don't let your appreciation of champagne ruin your taste for beer! :) 

 
And even then, what's the best champagne (or single malt in my case)? Depends on who you talk to and the mood they're in.
