    For all that U2 get knocked these days, 'Boy' will always be a stand-out album.

    I love this song, but I think that it would be even better if Andrew Eldritch were singing it.

    This and "Into The Heart" are some of U2's greatest stuff of all time. Just to prove that they made wonderful music in all of their ages.

    Raw bare-bones sound and Raw budding talent! For me the album's hit single "I Will Follow" takes some beating, even all these years later. meanwhile I still live in hope to buy an original "Three" (EP) 12" Contact me... I have £1,000 waiting for a mint original copy!

    drazba, i'm right with you... i remember hearing this song on an NYC "alternative" station in early high school and dropping everything to go get the album. for me, boy, war, and october are U2. joshua tree and unforgettable fire are great, too... after that they lose me. i can go back to this and the other early recordings and love them all over again every day.
