One of the few songs my wife actually likes me to sing, better than none.
F**k You All with Much Love Jamooks!
So great
Where can I find free sheet music?
Wow , what else do you have to say
It's funny that I am hearing more classic U2 songs on other stations like Genesis' compared to U2's. By the way, this is one my favorites!
I never skip this song when it comes on.

You have to cry without weeping, talk without speaking, scream without raising your voice - I love that bit.
zanderm1999
Oh yeah. Paul hewson and Dave Evans
@zanderm1999 . Those are the band members real names.

You don't get me! Get your U2 off my station!!!!
U2 fan 4 life... I wish more people would get it ...
Ah, and now it's fixed.
What's up with the cover art displayed? It ain't no Joshua Tree.

very powerful song about the residents of the slum area around the Towers of Ballymun (the Seven towers in the song) and using drugs to escape. For an even more powerful version search YouTube for the live version in ZooTV watch?v=0Syt B l 1 Y S j g
So powerful.
Timeless lyrics...tim e l e s s song...if you do not own The Joshua Tree album...you are missing out on classic U2 Gems!!!
Still lovin' it

It's about drug addiction - specifically heroin.
I don't know why but this song speaks to my soul. I'd love to know who he was singin' about.
