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 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 One Love, One Life... April 2 2002
Format:Audio CD
"One" is flat out one of the greatest moments in u2's long and successful road down Rock n' Roll history. It is an incredibly written and produced song, perfectly completed by the emotional and soulful voice of Bono and the amazing guitar playing of The Edge. I feel it is one of the most emotional songs I've ever heard, and along-side "With or Without You," my favorite of all time.
Along with the hit that Axel Rose (of GNRs) said is one of the "best songs ever written," there are other great tracks on this single that make it a must buy for not just u2 fans, but any music fan. "Lady With a Spinning Head" is a simple, great rock song with an addictive chorus and great guitar riffs by The Edge. It was left off "Achtung Baby" because the guitar solo at the end of the track contains parts of "The Fly," which was a hit on that album. But "Spinning Head," in my opinion, could easily have deserved a spot on "Achtung" (one of the best rock albums of all time). I think "Spinning" is one of the best B-Sides U2 have ever released (it's challengers: Dancing Barefoot, Everlasting Love, Summer Rain, Always).
The other two tracks on the single are "Satellite of Love" and "Night and Day (Remix)." The prior mentioned is a cover of a Lou Reed song which is done very well, maybe even better than the original. I never got into this track too deeply but I'm in the minority of U2 fans for sure. "Night and Day" is a remix that sounds like their "Achtung Baby" style, an unexpected surprise to end a classic single.
If you don't have this single and you're a U2 fan, you're missing out. A+++

5.0 out of 5 stars One Love, One Life, One tremendous single Jan. 26 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I'm not a fan of buying singles, because usually there are no other good songs on them other than the song you want. This, however, is a definite exception. First of all, it's worth buying just to have another copy of "One", one of the greatest songs ever. It is unchanged, as in the same version that's on the album(As it should be). What makes this cd worth buying is "Lady With The Spinning Head", an outstanding song that I didn't even know about until I read many favorable reviews about it. It is a catchy tune{la la la la la-Lady With The Spinning Head) and you will be singing it once you've listened to it a couple of times. There is a touch of "The Fly" very evident in the song. Also included is a very well-done rendition of Lou Reed's "Satellite Of Love". I'm not big on re-makes, as I usually like the original versions of songs, but this could very well be BETTER than Reed's version. The cd closes out with a less-than spectacular remix of "Night And Day", but is it still neatly done. Besides, it's not often you find THREE great songs on a single! I highly recommend any serious U2 fan into buying this single.

The single track is only a ballad. It's a webbing song! There's also weak lyrics!

"One" is one of the classic U2 songs, and the accompanying B-Sides make for a great EP of sorts. Read more

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

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. Read more
