for which song will U2 be remembered by the public?

or will there not be any individual one?

Pride? Streets? With Or Without You? One? Stuck in A Moment? Walk On?

i would select those as the number one candidates as 'hits' that the general public would know of, perhaps 'beautiful day' could also be included. personally i would say either 'streets' or 'one', however the power of 'walk on' and 'stuck', for the populus at least, may well depend on if it continues its association with september 11th and it's positive message in light of the events.

Sunday Bloody Sunday seems to be the one they are most associated with. I've never met someone who hadn't heard that song and not known it was U2.

When all is said and done, people who don't know much about music or U2 will remember One and With Or Without You. Those are really the big ones.

Additionally, people will remember Pride, ISHFWILF, and Mysterious Ways. But nothing will top the first two in the public eye.

Sunday Bloody Sunday, Pride, With or Without You, and One are the songs that are the most known and will continue to be.

Honorable mention goes to New Years Day, Where the Streets Have No Name, I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For, and Mysterious Ways.

Beautiful Day is probably in that second group by this point as well. It's still getting pretty heavy airplay around here and it may reach that "classic" status in time.

Neither Walk On nor Stuck in a Moment will be remembered by the general public the way the aforementioned are.

I'd like to remind people here that U2 is still a band and probably will be for a few more decades or even more. They will very likely be remembered for many songs that have yet to be written.
Of songs that have been released though, With Or With Out You is by far their most popular and widely know song by the general public.

Beautiful Day! They played it at the Super Bowl in front of all those people and it was their most recent big hit (one song = 3 Grammys!).
