Says a lot about the song quality that I love at least the first 25 songs on the list and still enjoy the rest. I dont really listen to Passengers although I would rank MS and YBR quite high on the list (around 15-20 and 8-10 respectively)

Wow. I just listened to Pop again today and that album never ceases to amaze me (from beginning to end). I almost want to raise the ranks of a few of the songs, but I'm just gonna leave my original rankings alone. It's too hard to rank 90's U2 songs. I love them all!

Zooropa
One

Acrobat
Gone
Until the End of The World
Please (the live version would be number 1)
The Fly
Lemon

Wake Up Dead Man
Ultraviolet
Discotheque
Love Is Blindness
Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses
Stay (Faraway, So Close)
MOFO

Even Better Than the Real Thing
Do You Feel Loved?
Zoo Station
If You Where that Velvet Dress
Mysterious Ways
Babyface
Daddy's Gonna Pay For Your Crashed Car
Trying to Throw Your Arms Around the World
Some Days Are Better Than Others
Staring At The Sun
If God Will Send His Angels
The Playboy Mansion
Last Night On Earth

Miami
Dirty Day
Numb
So Cruel
The First Time
The Wanderer (I don't like it when U2 sample someone else's voice)

Exactly. I keep wanting to change the order. I was listening to UTEOTW today, heard the guitar solo, and now I want to raise its rank. But I'm just gonna leave it. My post is just a very rough estimate of my opinions. It's interesting to see that some of my favorites are being ranked a lot lower by almost everyone else. I always seem to love the least popular tracks on albums, so I guess I'm not surprised.

There are certain elements that make me gravitate to U2 and make U2.....U2. They don't need to have all of these things in a song to make me like them but if all of them are in it and done right, it's usually an epic/ perfect song(think Streets, Pride, SBS, Beautiful Day, etc..)

Those elements from least to most important(although they all are important)


5-The build of the song (how they add in sounds as the song grows)
4-The chorus (one that makes you involuntary shout it out)
3-The lyrics and meaning of their songs (love, overcoming obstacles , etc...)
2-Edges chiming/soaring/monster guitar riffs
1-Bono's voice : other artists can copy #s 5-2 but they can't copy this. His voice IS U2 and when he has a great delivery (SHFWILF or EBTTRT) it enhances the song. When he is off...the song suffers (Crazy Tonight voice cracks or Cedars of Lebanon where he sounds like old man spoken word Bono)

I don't like the Wanderer at all because in addition to missing most of the above elements, the song is missing the thing I love most about U2...Bono.
