The non-album tracks get better the later in their career IMO.

Sorry, A Celebration. The fact that you were the only one had to listen to in order to recall was probably enough.

Stays for now, because RH era is peak Bono vocals. Keeps that song interesting holding out some notes.

Hard to pick one out of 30, but Disappearing Act I guess.

So, there's a few minutes left in this poll, but I'm about to leave the house for a few hours and the outcome of this round is not in question, so I'm going to start the next poll a few minutes early.
