From The Best of 1980-1990 and 449 other releases
The single was released in March 1983 in Germany and The Netherlands only; “Two Hearts Beat As One” was released instead in other territories. Along with “New Year’s Day”, the song helped U2 reach a wider listening audience. It was generally well-received by critics on the album’s release.
The song has remained a staple of U2’s live concerts. During its earliest performances, the song created controversy. Bono reasserted the song’s anti-hate, anti-sectarian-violence message to his audience for many years. Today, it is considered one of U2’s signature songs, being one of the band’s most performed songs. Critics rate it among the best political protest songs, and it has been covered by over a dozen artists. It was named the 268th greatest song by Rolling Stone on their list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.
