*****
...sehr gut...
****
GUT ABER NICHT MEGA
****
Dem kann ich zustimmen, kein schlechter Song, aber verglichen mit ihren besten Stücken kann das nicht mehr als eine 4 geben. Immerhin hatten sie damals endlich ihre Krise von Mitte der 90er Jahre hinter sich gelassen. Schöne Melodie, aber nichts Besonderes.
*****
Recht gut.
*****
höre ich öfters zur Zeit, gefällt mir auch plötzlich besser

es gibt allgemein bessere song
****
...eines der besseren Stücke auf 'Pop'...
****
kann mich werner nur anschliessen
****
schöne Ballade, abgerundet
*****
#3 im April 1997 in GB. Aufgerundete 5.
****
Haut mich nicht um
*****
sehr gut
*****
Solider Song, wirkt mit der Zeit etwas abgenutzt.
******
Vieleicht einer diue Beste songs von "U2".....hatte leider nicht so viel erfolg !....Es war Hit # 22 in die NL-Hitparade..... Frühling 1997 auf Platz # 19 !
*****
▓ Heel aardige plaat van "U2" uit eind april 1997 !!! Maar werd geen succes in de Hollandse hitparade's !!! Maar waarom niet !!! Van mij toch nog 5 sterren !!! (NL Top 40: 3 wk / # 22) !!!
***
Akzeptabel
****
Na ja... gerade noch ne 4!
*****
Easy zum listen... > und hat sich einen Bonus verdient!

das war schon nicht mehr meine lieblingszeit von U2. aber wie erwähnt, noch okay..
***
Durchschnitt

gute scheibe
****
Ueberzeugt mich nicht ganz.
****
Good!!!
**
weak
******
Ich mag es wahnsinnig gerne. Kann es nicht wirklich begründen, ist einfach so.
****
Naja, eher schmalspurig, insbesondere der [New Mix] auf ihrer Best-Of-Scheibe.
*****
Sehr gut.

gut.
*****
Schöner Song......
***
Joa
*****
Euphorischer Hit der Weltverbesserer.
**
klingt falsch
***
I remember at the time not feeling this track along with any of U2's material of the time. I remember the film clip was awesome but couldn't get into the track itself. It's OK but not brilliant.
****
Nachdenklicher Text, schöne Melodie - hübscher Song, solide 4!
*****
U2 haben die nervige Angewohnheit inmitten von bescheuerten bis durchschnittlichen Songs jeweils einen oder zwei geniale Titel zu verstecken. Auf "Pop" übernimmt "Staring At The Sun" diese Rolle. Highlight! 5.5
*****
Muy buena.
******
Sehr schön
******
Den Song hier liebe ich sehr von U2. Nicht ganz so wie "Citys of blinding lights" aber kommt dem schon nahe.

Hat so ne chillige u. fröhliche Atmosphäre. Die Melodie ist sehr fein auch.
*****
Na also, es geht doch noch.
*****
Für mich das letzte gute Lied von U2, schade.
Erinnert mich immer wieder an das für mich schlimme 1997...
**
kinda awkward
****
2e single van "Pop", een album waarbij veel U2-fans afhaakten omdat de band niet meer leek uit de tijd van "The Joshua Tree" of "The unforgettable fire".
Deze ballad was al beter dan "Discoteque", maar kwam niet verder dan nr 19 in mei 1997. Goede ballad
****
gelungener Song, erzeugt eine schöne Atmosphäre - 4+
**
Schwache Nummer! *2(+)
****
atmosphärisch in Ordnung gehendes Gitarrenstück – 3.5 (aufgerundet auf 4*)...

#26 in den Billboard Hot 100 1997...
****
Good enough.
*****
sehr gut!
****
A good track.
*****
Für mich auch ein Albumfavorit. Recht schöner Song mit einem fast hymnenhaften Refrain, nur das Arrangement gefällt mir, wie auf "Pop" im Allgemeinen, etwas weniger. 4,5-5*.
*****
Einer der wenigen guten Songs vom "Pop"-Album
****
Ok
**
nervt; was ist denn das für ein Hummelflug?
*****
Muy buena
****
... gut ...
****
Kann man sich anhören.
*****
Einer ihrer besseren Singles zu jener Zeit.

CDN: #1 (2 weeks), 1997
USA: #26, 1997
****
gut
****
anständig
***
geht so...
****
Akzeptabel
****
Durchschnittsware
*****
Sicher einer der besten U2-Songs. Eingängig und schön.
*****
Dik in orde hoor.
*****
Einer der wenigen guten Songs auf POP

lief 1997 rauf und runter im Radio und auf ViVA und MTV
seltsamerweise einer der U2 Songs, die in Vergessenheit geraten sind.

Ist der grösste Hit von POP gewesen, was die Anzahl der verbrachten Wochen angeht.

DISCOTEQUE erreichte zwar die deutschen, amerikanischen und britischen Top 10 und sogar im UK # 1 aber nach nur wenigen Wochen verliess der Song die Top 40, während Staring at the sun hingegen viele Wochen in den Charts verweilte

Hat gewisse Ähnlichkeiten zu OASIS WONDERWALL
***
Ganz okay - könnte tatsächlich einer ihrer besten Titel sein, ohne dass ich deswegen jetzt auf meine alten Tage hin zum Fan dieser Combo werde!
****
prima nummer
*****
Beste Single von "Pop" ! Sehr gut gemacht.
****

4.3.
*****
Einer der besseren Songs von U2. Hier kommen starker Groove, Eingängigkeit und schöne Melodik gelungen zusammen.
****
Bin da absolut eins mit uebi : Der Song war mal wieder viel besser als das was so Mitte der 90er von denen kam aber ist nicht ganz so stark wie viele ihre grossen Hits, von mir gibt's da hauchdünn keine 5!

War 1997 auch ein Hit in Italien (#2) und Irland (#4)
