I'll play.

1. Jesus Christ- the only U2 song I simply cannot listen to. It's absolutely cringe-worthy.

The rest, in no particular order:

Big Girls Are Best
Vertigo
Elevation
Stuck in a Moment (album version)
A Room at the Heartbreak Hotel
Fortunate Son
Miracle Drug
When Love Comes to Town
Love Rescue Me
All Because of You

Honorable mentions:

R&H version of Still Haven't Found
A Man and a Woman
Peace on Earth

"If Coke is a mystery
Michael Jackson, history."

Probably because we've since created Paris Hilton and Reality TV and the song just keeps on gaining relevancy.

don't make those particular lyrics stink any less though

I'm sure Bono could have delivered that same message with lyrics that actually are not on a level similar to that of my friends trying to be smart arses at a bar at 2 am

1. In A Little While

4. One
5. Even Better Than The Real Thing
6. Red Light
7. One (extended mix)
8. Ultraviolet (Baby Baby Baby mix)
9. The 'Achtung Baby is the greatest album ever' collage
10. So Cruel (instrumental mix)

:evil:

I would kill myself by cracking my head open on the chair.

The only bad U2 song is Elvis Presley and America.

amerrydeath 07-25-2006 10:20 PM

Before hearing Stuck live, I would've included it on my list, but it absolutely takes a 180 turn when it's acoustic and not buried under all that overproduction.

My list would have to include Velvet Dress (possibly the most boring, coma-inducing chord sequence I've heard, even if the lyrics are excellent), Red Light, Boy/Girl, Miami (it's not so bad live, but just a downer paired with Playboy Mansion on Pop and ruins the whole flow of the album), Playboy Mansion, Grace :| and COBL. Love and Peace, as well--the music is absolutely some of the best U2 have come out with in a long time, it sounds fresh and interesting, but the lyrics!

Yahweh tops it all off. The synthesizers. No.

Should that really count though?

I know it's on the album, but wasn't it a drum loop or the music itself played backwards with Bono ad-libbing?

AtomicBono 07-25-2006 10:39 PM

you all have shit taste in music :happy:

kidding, kidding. it's just funny that we all love the same band but disagree so much! I guess that says something about U2's vast catalouge, even undisputed classics aren't so undisputed.

Crumbs From Your Table - Awful production, generic music. The only really brilliant part is the end of the song...oh wait that's Electrical Storm! :happy: :|

A Room at the Heartbreak Hotel - boring!

The Three Sunrises - I really don't like this song :yuck:

hmm, that's all I can think of so far, really U2 doesn't have a lot of shitty songs. Grace and Scarlet are pretty boring, but I usually enjoy them within the context of the albums

Screwtape2 07-25-2006 10:47 PM

I'm not sure it's fair to call a b-side one of U2's lamest songs. They are b-sides for a reason. ex. J. Swallow.

Earnie Shavers 07-25-2006 11:12 PM

This is not in order, and just what popped up straight away:

Original of the Species, Refugee, Miracle Drug, Sometimes You Can't Make it on Your Own, Sweetest Thing, Babyface, Trip Through Your Wires, When Love Comes to Town, Grace, and a clear winner in Yahweh.

sure, but U2 has some fantastic b-sides, b-sides that are good enough to be album tracks...if the song really sucks, U2 shouldn't release it at all :shrug:

I can't believe I didn't mention Red Light, that is one of the very few U2 songs that is truly bad

BigMacPhisto 07-26-2006 01:59 AM

Red Light's great! A nice sort of Taxi Driver homage........personally, I thought they did really well with it because I got the whole TD sort of style before seeing them mention it in an interview or book or whatever it was.

Halup 07-26-2006 02:20 AM

Boy/Girl
Shadows And Tall Trees
J. Swallow
Paint It Black
Fortunate Son
Babyface
Ito Okashi
Corpse (These Chains Are Way Too Long)
Elvis Ate America
Theme From The Swan
Viva Davidoff

11) Wild Honey - U2 trying to be Van Morrison
10) When Love Comes To Town - U2 reminding us that they're white...and lame
9) The Refugee - U2 trying to sound like morons, and they succeed!
8) Stories For Boys - U2 before they ever heard of homosexuality
7) A Celebration - U2 rebelling against the mistreatment of Irish immigrants in a local Arby's joint
6) One Step Closer - U2 trying to emulate the sound of a slowly growing cancer.
5) Red Light - U2 trying to fuck some girls in the studio. Turns out they fucked us instead!
4) Yahweh - Bono slips on a banana peel and by some coincidence the record button was turned on. Yah-WAYYYYYY
3) Sometimes You Can't.... - Bono decides the subject of his dad's death makes good for pop music
2) A Man And A Woman - Bono's tribute to Viagra
1) What's Goin On (remake) - Bono actually consults Fred Durst

After reading this thread,i come the this conclusion:

It gives credibility to the U2 bashers saying that they are the most overrated band.I mean,for god sake!!, i think the only songs that hasn't been mention has lame are "Streets" and "Sunday bloody Sunday"....

On which other band board will you see fans destroying an entire band cataloge??????????

:eyebrow:

WalkOnTheEdge is right, everyone. Shame on you all for disliking what is U2's best song, like, ever. :tsk: Shame on you all for having an opinion. :tsk:

Quick, someone find a stake and some kerosene. You will all burn for your sins against 2000 era U2! Repent!

About time you came around GibsonGirl and realized the error of your ways. :sexywink:

I have my own favorites and not favorites and no one else's list will change my views. :D

:eyebrow:

the U2 bashers will take every half arsed reason for their ways though
not ever laser beams can stop them
though I am in favour to give it a shot

BVS 07-26-2006 07:42 PM

I think it's funny how two of the biggest critics on our board, chose songs that one wasn't even released at the time of his comment, and the other a song where pretty much the only thing U2 had to do with it was Bono's voice show up on it.:|

I would have thought coming up with songs would have been much easier than that for some.
