Yahweh vs. Grace

The better closer? The better song overall? Use any such criteria to vote for the song you prefer.

I used to find Grace boring and bland. But some of the lyrics and especially the music has grown on me over the years. Yahweh I still find boring.

Both have their low moments, both have their highs, but I think 'Grace' shades it.

Yahweh, naturally. It's my all favourite song from the entire catalogue and it has a big mening for me.
But I like Grace too, is a tranquilizer and I like the ambiance that the song creates.

Yahweh is your #1 favorite U2 song?

Wow, slow down. Yahweh is not a bad song, but your favourite from the entire catalogue?

Grace.

the bassline is prime for some babymaking music, Burgundy-style.

the only bad line = "Grace...it's the name of a girl".

Come on Bono, you wrote Mofo, Mofo! You can think of something better than that.

I used to really like "Yahweh", but now I just like the middle 8 + outro of the song, now that is gorgeous.

"Grace" is one of my least favorite U2 songs...although it has grown on me quite a bit. "Yahweh" by a mile.

Although I actually like both of these songs, recently I listened to Grace and must give it the edge due to lovely Eno/Lanois-style reserbed production values. Perfect texture.

Yahweh.

Grace is, up until the "what once was hurt" part when Bono stops muttering and actually sings, fairly dull and a horrible closer. (Why didn't Falling at your feet get to be ATYCLB's closer?)

Good poll

I found it interesting that Bono thinks that Grace is a great song.

I don't really like either of them. Yahweh contains some of Bono's whiniest vocals and I think Grace is a little uninteresting.

I give a slight upper hand to Grace, though, because I like the general sound of it.

Yahweh has it's moments, so does Grace. So I enjoy both, but can't decide.

They are both pretty solid, but nothing spectacular. If they released the "original" version of Yahweh, I would have probably picked that.

Bring back Eno and Lanois.

I like GibsonGirl's evaluation!!!

I don't really care for either, but I'll give Yahweh the edge, because you can hear the Edge in that one!!
