Favorite B-Side of ALL TIME!

The b-side decade debate had me inspired to start a thread about everyone's favorite b-side of all time, spanning all eras.

I think my favorite would have to be Spanish Eyes, though I like North and South of the River, Hallelujah Here She Comes, Everlasting Love and Unchained Melody. But Spanish Eyes, just has it all for me, lyrics, music, all of it.

What do the rest of you think?

Deep in the heart/everlasting love/north and south of the river.. i love all those. But my favourite (if i had to pick one) would ofcourse be spanish eyes. That shouldnt have been a b-side, that should have been an album track - its too good to be just a b-side!

Spanish Eyes. It should have been a single in its own right.

Methinks Spanish eyes is gonna get a fair few votes. So am wondering, does everyone think it would do as well as Sweetest Thing did?
Am not so sure it would

I think spanish eyes would have done just aswell - i liken it to with or without you, and at the time im sure alot of people were expecting another one of these sort of songs from u2. Plus its a great song. 'i cross the world for green and gold, but its those spanish eyes that get me home..'

Unchained Melody can bring me to my knees.
The Sweetest Thing was great!
Spanish Eyes just awsome.

but from those three mine would be The Sweetest Thing.

I wanted to run but she made me crawl.

I agree, the Sweetest Thing is really a great song, I think I underrate it since it was one of the first U2 songs I started to listen to

Lady with the spinning head , without question , it's probably better than lot's of A sides . In fact I find it way more enjoyable than the AB versions of Fly and Ultraviolet , which were the 2 songs that originated from it

Always is SERIOUSLY under rated.
However Everlasting Love and Dancing Barefoot are tied in my book.

I think it would've done much better.

Frankly, I think it should've been on JT and been one of that album's singles, maybe Spanish Eyes instead of In God's Country.

Off the top of my head, it's SPANISH EYES. Heard it earlier today. Every time I hear it, I can't believe it wasn't an album track. I Spanish Eyes...

Wey hey hey

'cause I love the way you talk to me
And I love the way you walk on me
And I need you more
Oh, than you need me

North and South of the River.

Without a doubt it should've been on Pop. Too bad Christy Moore used it first.

Ugh, this is a hard decision for me. I generally love of all of U2's b-sides, and to pick just one is killing me. My favorites would be Salome, Walk to the Water, and Spanish Eyes. Summer Rain, lyrically, also gets me everytime.

But if I had to pick just one? The Sweetest Thing

I'll put in another vote for Spanish Eyes. The Three Sunrises is a close second.
