Zooropa? That's a great song title, easily one of their best... how many bands can pull off a social commentary in just a one word song title alone?

I prefer short song titles (and album titles too) for the most part, so many, many of U2's titles bug me. I think they should make a rule for themselves that at least half of the song titles on an album have titles of no more than two words, and none of the rest should have more than five words (and five word titles only sparingly then too!). I don't even want to listen to the song with many of their titles...they are that atrocious.

I have to agree with Acrobat and MLK-great and little less great song but autimaticly i think about circus and milk.

Running To Stand Still is a phenomenal song title. Acrobat is also great.
Crappy ones are Wild Honey, Peace on Earth, A Man and a Woman, Stranger in a Strange Land...

Phommel, i think "Origin of the species" would sound much better. "Original of the Species" doesn't really flow so well. It sounds forced.

Sometimes You Cant Make It On Your Own

Great song but the title is way too long.

Charles Darwin's lawyers might have something to say about that one
