5.0 out of 5 stars Is it getting better? Sept. 25 2005
Format:Audio CD
It's now over 13 years since ONE was released and it still has the impact it did all those years ago. It is still a favourite of the band as well, as they continue to perform it in each and every concert.
The song LADY WITH THE SPINNING HEAD would have fit in very nicely with the rest of the ACHTUNG BABY! album. You will notice a similarity between this song and THE FLY right away, I am sure! The guitar playing by The Edge at the end of the song is exactly the same as that on THE FLY.
SATELLITE OF LOVE is a cool bluesy type of number, nice and slow and breezy until the end when the tempo picks up a bit. A really nice song!
NIGHT AND DAY is a dance remix type of song (7 minutes in length) and is written by the legendary song writer Cole Porter.
It's a great single to add to your collection and I'd highly recommend it. Even the cover art is very emotional, with the buffalos being forced off of the edge of a cliff (which is the method native hunters used to kill them).

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome song! March 5 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is in my opinion, one of U2's greatest love songs they've ever done.
It's so hard to believe that this song is actually over 12 years old because it shows none of it's age even in 2004. This is a really deep, creative, and angst-ridden rock song with Bono's incredible vocals and amazing lyrics.
The album "Achtung Baby" is a must-have because it's the most innovative rock album of the 1990s and should be bought but this single is worth getting too just for the B-Sides which unforuntately weren't on the 1990-2000 collection due to the labels bumbling management of it's conception.
This is one of U2's greatest songs of the 1990s and still is popular today and that's saying a lot!

1.0 out of 5 stars A Boring Ballad Sept. 10 2003
Format:Audio CD
The single track is only a ballad. It's a webbing song! There's also weak lyrics!

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't miss this One May 28 2003
Format:Audio CD
The "One" single released off U2's ACHTUNG BABY album contained two original songs (including the title track), and two cover. Here are comments on each of the four:
"One" - Perhaps one of the best songs recorded by a band ever. Slow, nicely understated, and quite touching, this is U2 at their absolute best.
"Lady With The Spinning Head" - Possibly my favorite U2 B-side. The rhythm section and some of the guitar work were a bit too similar to that of "The Fly" to include this release on the ACHTUNG BABY album, but the song itself is a strong one. This features a lot of Edge's guitars (some are from "The Fly" and some are unique), and some mesmerizing keyboards. Larry and Adam provide a great beat, as usual, and Bono seems to be having a blast singing this one. An absolutely fun song. An extended dance mix can be found on the "Even Better Than The Real Thing" single.
"Satellite of Love" - A cover of the Lou Reed classic (the original can be found on his TRANSFORMER album). In U2's live concerts during their ZooTV Tour, they would perform this song while a pre-taped Lou Reed sang along on a giant video-screen. Reed isn't featured on this version, and the Mick Ronson piano of the original is replaced by The Edge's guitar covering similar territory. It features backing vocals by one Gavin Friday (the "pom pom pom" in the background of the chorus definitely sounds like him), and one speculates if is this the reason for the date in the lyrics being changed from "Thursday" to "Friday"? Despite the replacement of some instruments, this is pretty much a straightforward cover, albeit slightly slower than the original. Bono is, of course, a much stronger vocalist than Lou Reed, so this version definitely has that advantage.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best "Achtung Baby" Single March 5 2003
Format:Audio CD
"One" is one of the classic U2 songs, and the accompanying B-Sides make for a great EP of sorts. Of particular merit is the song "Lady With the Spinning Head" which is as good as any track on "Achtung Baby" If you haven't figured it out, U2 records spectacular B-Sides, and this song is no exception.
I also enjoy "Sattellite of Love" and "Night and Day". "Night and Day" is an especially interesting recording. It is not the typical one you hear on the old jazz classics in that it is definitely kicked up to U2's pace with a rock edge to it. Yet, this version is great, and I am sure Cole Porter would be proud.
Definitely worth buying.

2.0 out of 5 stars Hardly inspiring. May 10 2002
Format:Audio CD
This CD-Single is representative of the general pentecostal milieu within which Bono continually places himself. Dake's influence is salient.

4.0 out of 5 stars Oneness May 8 2002
Format:Audio CD
Meditate on the lyrics to this song when you listen to it. It speaks about the Oneness movement. These spiritual concepts mesh and form one whole. I never cease to find the music of U2 inspirational. I would have given this album 5 stars if it had been a little bit longer.
Enjoy.
