I have the version where it's a secret track at the end. Essentially I consider that last song ten minutes of brilliance, I love both tracks dearly.

A great thread. Since many of the best have been mentioned, I'm throwing out some dark horses/sentimental favorites/fliers below the radar.

this must be the place (naive melody) - talking heads
drive-by truckers - a world of hurt
vito's ordination song - sufjan stevens
caught by the river - doves
a murder of one - counting crows
amsterdam - coldplay
voodoo child (slight return) - jimi hendrix
scientist studies - death cab for cutie

My Favorite U2 Closers (In Order):

1. Love is Blindness (Depressing and wonderful, perfect way to end AB.)
2. Wake Up Dead Man (Love the lyrics and the desperation.)
3. MLK (Perfect way to end UF.)
4. All I Want is You (A great song, I love the violin ending and the lyrics.)
5. "40" (A sentimental way to end War.)
6. Yahwew (One of my favorite spiritual songs from U2.)
7. Mothers of the Disappeared (Good way to end JT.)

don't think the thought didn't cross my mind when i wanted to put "straight to hell" on my closer list and remembered it doesn't actually close out the entire album. i had forgotten. it's to the point where it's in my top 3 favorite clash songs, but also the only thing off combat rock i can stand.

I have a nomination for worst side two opener, and that's "4th of July". Really awkward flipping the album over and that being the first thing you hear. To me at any rate.

That whole side of the album doesn't do much for me, to be honest.

I would disagree. "Bad" is a classic. "Indian Summer Sky" is a beautiful melody, imo. "Elvis Presley And America" is a gorgeous atmosphere piece.

Bad(minton) isn't a classic in that version. Has about 1/10 the power of any live perf of it I've heard.

The other songs are decent but it's a very top-heavy album for me.
