Top 10 U2 Atmospheric Songs

I don't post often here, but always follow the threads. I'll try to get this one started: What are the best U2 atmospheric songs? I just love U2 at their most atmospheric, exploring new soundscapes, so I put down my top 10 list below:

10. Grace
9. The First Time (specially the instrumental version by Daniel Lanois in the Million Dollar Hotel soundtrack
8. Bass Trap
7. Elvis Presley and America
6. The Ground Beneath Her Feet
5. If You Wear That Velvet Dress: the jewel from Pop, imo
4. Heartland
3. Promenade
2. Your Blue Room
1. The Unforgettable Fire: the most atmospheric U2 song imo. The sounds they explore are, well, unforgettable.

Well, I wish you all a Merry Christmas.

4. Where The Streets Have No Name
5. Love is Blindness
6. Bad
7. Mothers of the Disappeared
8. Running to Stand Still
9. Miss Sarajevo
10. A Sort of Homecoming

Ian McCulloch the U2 fan:
"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."

Great list Axver. I would have replaced Luminous Times with Race Against Time but outside of that you really nailed it.

Where is the wake up dead man love? I consider that one to be very atmospheric.
