*ouch* that's a bit harsh. Miami is a song not to be taken seriously, it's the drum beat kick back relax silly lyrics song. my mammy.

 

Possibly but something has to be way down there and for me its 'Miami'!!

*MIAMI*.....one of the most fun and artistically well done U2 songs.....Larry's drumming is excellent...I suspect he tried to recover the time as he was late to the recordings bc of his back surgery...... Perfectly following Bono's laid-back, honest, exquisite lyrics.....And Edge's guitar is funky, playful.. There's an abundance of guitar-patterns all over the song....Stuff that I never heard of again after this album..........All glued together and brought into the best of moods by Adam's genius bass......This is U2 having fun ..... There's no shame in it....Just like the next song says " Then will there be no time for shame ".   I'm all for NOT taking life too seriously, because I can't do it........ You got only one shot at that and they did it right..... !!!

:D A strong defence of Miami... I'm still not convinced though. I would maybe have Holy Joe instead of it...

I'd still love to hear all the unreleased stuff from that era. I'm pretty certain they started an album with Nellee Hooper but he had to leave the project. And of course the early versions of songs you can hear on the Hong Kong video too

When I hear *MIAMI* I forget all my worries (I don't care it sounds cheesy) .........And true....Would love to hear all the demos and different versions.

Adam's bass is the bomb on this.

Took a while for Miami to grow on me but I like it now. Even if I didn't like the song, they've still done much worse (*cough* Grace *cough*)

Yes. I don't like Peace On Earth, When I Look At The World, New York or Grace. They are decisively boring...
