In no particular order (A couple with comments):

1) Velvet Dress (Jools Holland version) - he does the equivalent of vocal gymnastics on this track
2) Lemon
3) I Will Follow - not because of any technical vocal prowess, but because of the passion and the vibe he instills into the song
4) Bad - Duh. Obvious choice.
5) One Tree Hill
6) Red Hill Mining Town
7) Zooropa
8) Stay
9) Ultraviolet
10) Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me
11) Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own
12) Kite

Honourable mentions - With Or Without You/Wild Horses/So Cruel

Okay, so I got tired of making comments. But most of them are due to the passion and yearning he manages to invoke.

That was hard, narrowing it down, and trying to judge solely on vocal performance, as opposed to songs I love.

I can't believe only one person so far has mentioned One Tree Hill. Bono's vocals on this track blow me away every time I hear them. Actually, most of the Joshua Tree featured Bono in top form. Red Hill Town might just be his single greatest vocal recording to date, and Still Haven't Found is simply perfect.

I hope it isn't cheating to count a b-side and a non-U2 collaboration!
