i don't get how anyone can say this isn't better than the original. The original was crap. Lennon is a legend and all, but this version kicked it's ass.... and to boot, Bono sounded a lot like Lennon anyway imo.
That was pretty aweful.
Felt really weak - not a patch on the raw power of Lennon's honest original.
I'm surprised U2 couldn't pull it off - Bono's voice is powerful enough to do a decent cover, mixed with the Edge's epic guitar sound, they could of created an awesome wall of sound!
