Rank the 90's album tracks 1-34

Hope the OP of the 2000's thread doesn't mind me ripping them off with this, but I enjoyed ranking those so I thought I'd start a 90's one.

Here's my list:

1 - Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses
2 - So Cruel
3 - If God Will Send His Angels
4 - Acrobat
5 - Mysterious Ways
6 - One
7 - Until The End Of The World
8 - Mofo
9 - Ultraviolet (Light My Way)
10 - Please
11 - Lemon
12 - Some Days Are Better Than Others
13 - Do You Feel Loved
14 - Trying To Throw Your Arms Around The World
15 - Love Is Blindness
16 - Dirty Day
17 - Gone
18 - Even Better Than The Real Thing
19 - Last Night On Earth
20 - Babyface
21 - The First Time
22 - The Fly
23 - Staring At The Sun
24 - Zoo Station
25 - Stay (Far Away, So Close!)
26 - The Playboy Mansion
27 - The Wanderer
28 - Wake Up Dead Man
29 - Zooropa
30 - Numb
31 - Discotheque
32 - If You Wear That Velvet Dress
33 - Daddy's Gonna Pay For Your Crashed Car
34 - Miami

Disclaimer: I've never liked One (or Please) as much as most U2 fans. Miami would be higher as an instrumental. Dirty Day would be higher if it sounded like the live version from the Sydney video (same with Stay and Lemon for that matter). The guitars on the second half of If You Wear That Velvet Dress are some of the most gorgeous guitars on any U2 recording.

01. Ultraviolet
02. Acrobat
03. Zooropa
04. Wake Up Dead Man
05. Last Night On Earth
06. Until The End Of The World
07. If You Wear That Velvet Dress
08. Do You Feel Loved
09. Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses
10. Stay
11. Gone
12. Love Is Blindness
13. Lemon
14. Discotheque
15. Even Better Than The Real Thing
16. The Fly
17. Zoo Station
18. The First Time
19. Mysterious Ways
20. Staring At The Sun
21. Mofo
22. One
23. Please
24. The Playboy Mansion
25. Babyface
26. Dirty Day
27. So Cruel
28. Some Days Are Better Than Others
29. Numb
30. Trying To Throw Your Arms Around The World
31. Miami
32. Daddy's Gonna Pay For Your Crashed Car
33. If God Will Send His Angels
34. The Wanderer

I feel that the single version of Please is so much better than the album version.

Dirty Day is growing on me as we speak, so my list is subject to change.

Last Night On Earth, I adore the intro, but don't really rate the actual song. But the intro is that damn good that it boosts the whole thing up for me. Weird.

I don't get why you've missed out several album tracks and replaced them with some non-album tracks and passengers tracks of your choice

My mistake.

I thought it was a best of 90s 1-34, didn't realise it was album tracks only.

I don't know how you all do it, I can barely finish a grocery list...

I wouldn't even be able to create a top ten, 25 min later I'd be editing that shit because something would remind me I forgot Gone or something...
