Love Comes Tumbling for the win.

Ground Beneath Her Feet to save it (and it probably is my least favourite here).

But as a track; the instrumentation, the production, the singing, I think it's the best thing left.

I don't care who wrote the lyrics, though they aren't particularly exceptional. Definitely the performance, not the lyricism, defines the song. Like I said in a past thread, it's worthy of the top ten, but top four exceeds its station.

And those acoustic live versions were unforgivable.

As was voting off 11OTT. Yes, I still view EYKIW as full of disgraceful heathens.

Ian McCulloch the U2 fan:
"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."
