This song has been an anthem at various point of time, ringing so true in those moments when you want to "really feel." I'm not even a U2 "fan" per say, but rather somebody who has incredible respect for Bono and admiration for the sound the band has created through the years. This is Good Music, regardless of how your tastes run.
There are three things to put on the New York City Bucket List, and they all have to do with this track:
- Walk across the Brooklyn Bridge sometime close to midnight -- listening to this.
- Ride your bike as fast as you can up the Westside Highway bike path -- listening to this.
- Find a moment where you can sing at the top of your lungs baby baby baby, light my way.
