4 - Stay
5 - City of blinding Lights
6 - Magnificent

#2) Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me (my second fav U2 song)
#3) Get on Your Boots // Unknown Caller
#4) Levitate // MOFO

#6) Original of the Species
#7) Moment of Surrender
#8) The Playboy Mansion
#9) Stay (Faraway, so Close!) // City of Blinding Lights

Oh, I must have forgotten a lot of stuff and I'll be pissed when can't edit this tomorrow. Btw, I'm not counting remixes, alt. versions and live versions.

These lists are getting so exhausting. I couldn't do a top 10 because it would keep changing on my mood.

1. Gone
2. Zooropa
3. Fez-Being Born
4. Beach Sequence
5. White As Snow
6. Last Night On Earth
7. Electrical Storm
8. Magnificent
9. The Ground Beneath Her Feet
10. Slug

So that's 1 for Zooropa, 2 for Passengers, 2 for Pop, 1 for MDH, 0 for ATYCLB, 1 for the Best Of 1990-2000, 0 for HTDAAB, 3 for NLOTH.

Stay was originally #10, but then I realised I'd omitted Electrical Storm, so it got bumped off the list.
