Walk On. It's marvelous, but not just quite as the other two.

I've always loved Walk On and thought it was an amazing closer for the Elevation tour ("Spirit is in the house!"), but by the time it got to 360 and those damn activists, it started to sound a bit tired.

Anyway, all three of these songs are beautiful and deserve to be here, but to me Kite (despite the unfortunate way it ends) edges out Walk On, and BD is the quintessential song from this record and probably one of U2's most important singles ever.

There is something undeniably Bon Jovi-esque about Kite's chorus, but Walk On is a bland fart of a song. Plus, those masks were pretty damn freaky.

What?! Edge looks great in his!!



Okay never mind.

My vote goes to Walk On. One of the rare times that a live version negatively influences my opinion of a great song. That 360 version was boring.

She didn't even choose Walk On as one of her desert island discs recently. Don't blame her.
