Wow, just wow
When I first heard this song, I had a bizarre, surreal feeling that this was the song on the album (what's an album lol) that was going to have a severe, metaphorical impact for the future. I get goosebumps EVERY time I hear this. I love Bono's lyrical audible "you can count on two fingers - all that you steal" when he performed this post-9/11. Great job on the remaster!!
Touching ode to freedom
With images of the band and small episodes played by actors this video generates a lot of emotion. The sequence of different people and also Bono tearing their shirts creates a strong moment of tension. I love seeing the diversity of characters populating the video. In the end the suitcase with the heart appears as a powerful symbol reminding us that love is the essential thing we should always take with us.
A Master Piece that creates interest
First off great image improvements. This song takes me back while in Afghanistan. I felt like blasting this song to all the oppressed from the evil rule of the taliban. Them lyrics just sums it up and takes me back for a little taste of hope for the villagers. And as a matter of fact I did play the song to some villagers and eyes lit up, and it didn't matter if the Lyric wasn't comprehensible or not. We had a translator. lol Wow, what a throw back, what a great memoir. I guarantee those villagers remember Walk On. just wanted to throw that out. Peace
A mazin g Son g of:
FREEDOM. .. ... 14:40. V-Hunter. Miss You Sugar.
What an improvement!
Wow, what an improvement those videos in HD!! So much detail. Looking out for the next video.
The year this was released I was going through some really bad tough times! This album & especially this song helped me so much in moving forward. It was/is still a struggle sometimes but I walk on.
Beautiful song
This song, no words can express how amazing this song is.
