Whats the best U2 song to deal with heart break?

I dont know why I am writing this or if it is in the right area. Just wondering what the best song is to deal with mild depression/brocken heart? Just wondering cos two months ago the girl I've been living with for the last 2 years and has been my girlfriend for the last 7 years has decided to meet some guy who owns a big company and is loaded with a wholelot of cash. Two months on and still hurts like hell. Well has anyone here found any U2 song that uplifted you when you were down?

Thanks,
Nico

I'm sorry to hear that, man.

Anyway, I'd pick Ultraviolet.

I would try ATYCLB (BD, Stuck, Walk On- these are really uplifting)


And my advice- DO NOT listen to Achtung Baby! (especially to Love is Blindness or So Cruel)

We all been there pal. Take it from me. ..I know how you feel. Went thro very similar thing few yrs back except had kids aswell. Might sound a cliche but time is a great healer. This may sound a bit deep but I have learned no matter how much feeling you got for someone, it counts for nothing if he/she dont feel the same.
Anyhoo, what you wanna do is listen to something kick ass and uplifting and not sad and in anway loosely connected wi love and just keep yer chin up.

Well, when I'm thinking about it, off Achtung Baby Zoo Station is a good exception- you know, you enter a new phase of life, everything can happen now, you're ready for what's next!

I still think Ultraviolet is perfect from AB.

Zoo Station has nothing to do with anything.

^ Why? Zoo Station is a "fuck the past, kiss the future" type of song, something went wrong, but so what? Everything is yet ahead of you! It's like you are born again, you are ready for a new life and you are happy because of that!

Thanks gals and guys :-) You are all so nice and awsome to take the time to reccomend the songs :-) All are really good songs I didnt think about walk on but the message is there. I need to walk on and "dream it all up again". I like alot of the songs on AB (its my fav album) but i cant listen to ONE or so cruel or love is blindnes right now :-( I love those songs but just hurts lots. One bad thing though is that U2 reminds me alot of my X :-( when U2 came to vancouver it was deff better times. I was in the video shooting for COBL and my ex and I waited like 6 hours the next day and had a good time at the concert. My ex grew to love U2 cos I love them so much and we had many good times while listening to U2. I guess I shouldnt think of those things and Walk on. Zoostation is nice too. I like it simply because it was the first song from AB and it does signify change. I mean imagine when you picked up the album for the first time on the first day of release and heard zoostation. It was a totaly different sound then anything U2 did before. So its a change, like the change i am going through now i guess.

Thanks everyone for all your great ideas :-) I think i will make a playlist of all the songs you reccomended on my ipod :-)

Nico

Hands down the best.

"I know it aches, your heart it breaks, you can only take so much, walk on"

it's the perfect break-up song.

Then again I got into Achtung Baby after my failed relationship, and that made things feel worse, lol.

Interesting take on the song. Never thought of the track that way (well, I did, but never in a relationship sense.)

My advice would be Beautiful Day.

Really uplifting song. Also Walk On and Stuck in a moment.

Strangely all from ATYCLB.

I'm sorry guys but I'm gonna disagree. I think the guy should actually listen to all these "heart-breaking" songs in order to get it off his chest and to deal with it (the fact that she left and the depression). That's what I did after my last break up. I made a pile of CDs with all the songs relevant to our relationship, took a bottle of Gin and presed play.
It sure wasn't easy but the next morning when I woke up (apart from hang over ) I felt a lot better about the ex-girlfriend leaving me.

Only then was I able to listen to Walk On, Ultraviolet, etc.

P.S. Be careful with "Who's gonna ride your wild horses", that was a difficult one for me.
