Crumbs, seeing as how Elvis is a demo-quality experiment of a song and shouldn't have even made the album.

EPAA is one of those U2 songs from the 80s that has dated horribly..I admire the spontaneity of it, (whicyh is something they could do with these days) but it just isn't a very good song, so Crumbs (which is fairly average) is my choice.

Yeah, I'd prefer to have Boomerang II or 3 sunrises in TUF than Elvis... I could take Sort of Homecoming, play it slower and start to improvise lyrics over it, I can make that too... It sounds like a demo or a "hurry up, gotta close the studio" song.

Elvis by a country mile.

The genius with Elvis is that the song is so raw, so passionate, so honest.

Almost everything U2 have recorded since Zooropa has been heavily produced. They should throw in the odd improvised track every now and then. Perhaps I'm so fond of Mercy because it's also quite raw compared to HTDAAB.

Two songs that have a similar sound, or a similar subject matter, or come from the same era, even. Hell, even the same track number, maybe. Why did you pick Crumbs and EPAA, of all songs? I'm just curious.

Mofo vs. 4th of July...4th of July, totally. I mean, 4th of July is pure genius, mainly because Bono's not involved. Mofo has too much Bono and stupid computer sounds. The whole song is a computer. I hate computers.

Elvis Presley And America for me. It's one of those songs I can listen to over and over. The newer songs such as crumbs sound over polished, it's good the first few listens then I don't want to listen to it again. EPAA gives me a new feeling each listen.
