Third single from 'Songs Of Experience', following up 'You're The Best Thing About Me' and 'Get Out of Your Own Way'.
The song was sent to Dutch Radio earlier this week and enters the Tipparade (bubbling under chart) now at #28).

So happy about this. Best song on the album.

Seems to be flopping here, although I've heard the song on the radio a couple of times.

This is my favourite U2 single since 'Magnificent'.

Magnificent was one hell of a song! It’s my favourite U2 song. Ordinary Love comes close..

Summer Of Love was an obvious choice - wonder why it isn’t doing well for them. It’s your standard U2 song. The GP should be eating this up like hot cakes.

Kind of ignorant of me, but I didn't really pay attention to the lyrics at first. Found out that this song is about Aleppo, Syria.
Makes the song even more special. Wow. Beautiful lyrics. Great song.

I played the last album and then this one back to back, I definitely think their last album is so much better. However, I’m guessing that mine will be an unpopular opinion.

I'm a little confused, which one do you like better? 'Songs Of Innocence' of 'Songs Of Experience'? :)

We never had single releases here, especially before iTunes. Even if they did, U2 would've flopped though.
