LUV THIS AWESOME SONG !!!
the kid on the cover of WAR looks like he has already seen too much, and there is no turning back.
Still one of the best tracks ever. Everything about it resounds in my top ten
If you would have told me in 1980 when I bought the album lol of War-that they would still be making music(and a shitload of $) ,and would be internationa l superstars,p r o b a b l y would have told you that you're whacked-but thanks boys for making music that makes people think,and feel-C
Epic.

Wow freshman year in college 1985

1984 sundevil stadium. Tempe AZ amazing!
My Pandora is in an 80's groove. First The Cars, then The Police and now U2. What's next, some synth pop?
The eyes of that kid on the cover of War are so intense. They express anger, fear, paranoia, offense, defense, hurt, it's all there. I guess that's why they chose it for War.
jm6 is tryin to start some s**t. Poor thing

Try to top Bono, lilredd. He's amazingly amazing.
Lilredd.jm6 your an idiot! You know nothing about true talent! When a band sounds good in person or even better as the album! Then that is true talent! Real music! Makes you actually feel something! Dumbass
What do u listen to then lilredd

The piano intro on this song is just brilliant.
Worst band of the 80s. Bono sucks
U2 forever. I can't wait until their next album
Beatlelistiq u e Mystique powerful sounds...
