I stopped taking this guy seriously when he said that Mofo was the disappointing opener to the Pop album. Check your facts next time before you make a list like that. LOL I also really disagree with all of his choices (except for Miami if he's going with the album version).

I'll list my 11, in no particular order
  • Discotheque - Kitch, but ultimately pointless
  • Jesus Christ - Silly, hoe-down of a cover
  • Babyface - Wank-off of a song
  • A Day Without Me - Hello 1980!
  • The Refugee - Oh hell no - WAHH HEY OHHH
  • Some Days Are Better Than Others - Bono brings his kindergarden poetry to U2
  • Trash, Trampoline and the Party Girl - nein
  • Love and Peace Or Else - U2 is not Franz Ferdinand, get your 1930s Metropolis guitar tone out of here Edge
  • Heartland - Don't try to be subtle now
  • Tower of Song - Nice try
  • Walk On - Gushing like an old grandmother

I agree with him on Trip Through Your Wires. Such a dire song, especially next to the masterpieces that the JT holds.

hmm, the only U2 song I think comes anywhere close to being lame would be Playboy Mansion
mostly because the lyrics try so much to be clever (or "ironic" even) that it just pains me

if he's gonna trash the song, atleast get the facts straight.

I don't agree with most of the choices, but some like Trip Through You Wires I can see.

My 11:


11. The Playboy Mansion - Not a bad song especially but nothing clever and vocally especially pretty boring.

10. Peace On Earth - There's a pattern with all a few of the songs on my list. Bono can get lazy and just write verses to songs where the last couple words are repeated, and that substitutes for an actual chorus. How many times is Peace on Earth is repeated? About the same as New York and Miami. Hawkmoon is the only song where I like that style of songwriting. I wish B had never done it again. And then listing out the names of the victims of the bombing, it's a nice message but doesn't make for a good song.

09. New York - The middle 8 is pretty good, and Edge's guitar work is interesting. But the subject matter and the damn repetition of "new york" makes the song not work over all for me.

08. Holy Joe - Silly. I don't like silly U2.

07. Wake Up Deadman - Not a big Pink Floyd fan. Next.

06. Babyface - I actually kind of enjoy the sardonic lyrics, but the early 90's r&b overtones kill this one for me.

05. Daddy's Gonna Pay For Your Crashed Car - Pointless.

04. When Love Comes To Town - Not a blues fan. I certainly
appreciate BB King's place in history and his talent is non debatable, but I just don't think he sounds good with the band. I want to hear bono and Edge, not BB and Lucille.

03. Boy/Girl - Juvenille and pretentious. You can tell Bono said to himself "I need to write an art rock song." And here it is.

02. Miami - This one's got it all, a lack of chorus, dated subject matter coupled with dated music, a boring topic and bland vocals. Should be number one except there's still:


01. Numb - Sorry Edge. I don't wanna hear you mumble into a mic for some 4 odd minutes. I dig the lyrics, but hate the delivery. The sliding on the fretboard seems lazy to me though I'm sure it's truely not. The ambient sounds add nothing and subbing a drum machine for the founding member of your band sucks. Oh, and B, you singing in a falsey is like me owning a platinum rolex and setting it with cubic zirconia diamels.
