Pearl Jam's Given To Fly vs. U2's City of Blinding Lights

Both songs create a euphoric feeling of taking off into the stratosphere!

Choose.

It really should be Given to Fly vs Going to Calfornia

A wave came crashing like a fist to the jaw
Delivered him wings, "Hey, look at me now"
Arms wide open with the sea as his floor
Ohhhhhhh, power, ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

He's... flying... whooooooooooole…
Hiiiiiiiiigh.. flying... ohhhhhhhh

Because the verses sound exactly the same. Robert Plant even stated that they PJ ripped off their song.

And PJ in the coolest way played Given To Fly at the House of Blues 2005 show and then they've invited Robert Plant on stage and played Going to California.

I love City of Blinding Lights, it is my favorite song in the 00's.
Given To Fly was always an excellent song, but never a favorite IMO.

Given To Fly is a good tune...but COBL is top 5 material for me...especially live, where it's unbelievably awesome.

They sound similar but not entirely the same.

Spent my days with a woman unkind, Smoked my stuff and drank all my wine

The bold part sounds completely different from how Given To Fly's lines end.

That's the second worst line in that song after the captain obvious one "and I miss you when you're not around".

Other than that, I love COBL!
