before i go onto the next song, i have to make a comment on “moment of surrender”…i re-read the Q magazine review of the album from January, which calls the song an instant u2 classic, and this album’s “one”…are you fucking kidding me?!?!?! seriously, this song is on the list of the worst u2 songs ever, along side “the playboy mansion”, “miami”, “peace on earth”, and “yahweh”. it is absoultely an awful song that makes no sense and is way way too long. they claim it was recorded in one take but that has got to be bull. no way.
I’ll go Crazy if I don’t go Crazy Tonight: Woah high notes for no reason, unnecessary! Especially when you can’t hit them, as in the 2nd verse. Completely uninteresting song, that doesn’t make a whole lot of sense, and could easily fit into How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb. That’s not a good thing. It must be one of those songs that was at one time 2, and eno/lanois did a mash up so that it makes no sense anymore. With a title like this, it should have been a fun upbeat dance-y kind of song. It’s not. In any way shape or form.
Grade: D – the more i listen to it the more i hate it
tomorrow, get on your boots.
