The Guardian's Top 40 U2 songs.

The Guardian newspaper has today published it's top 40 U2 songs.

Other than Get Out Of Your Own Way it's actually a quite well thought out list with some interesting choices.

Yeah, very interesting list. A lot i agree with and am glad to see (Sleep LIke a Baby, Mofo, The Fly, UTEOTW, Ultraviolet, Zooropa, The Troubles, NLOTH etc...) , and a lot I don't (Stuck, Sometimes You Cant..., Get Out, Invisible, Playboy Mansion (of all songs to pluck off of Pop)

But this is a MUCH more diverse and thoughtful list than I think I've ever seen.

Imagine being able to get your list in the Guardian, and the song you single out from SOE isn't The Little Things, Red Flag Day, Love Is Bigger...but Get Out aka anthem-on-autopilot.

I love their song Red Hill Mining Town. And the video does the song justice, too. If you've never seen it, do watch it on YouTube.

A great underrated song. Trip Through Your Wires is also great. They have some real gems on the table.

I didn't even look at the list, so good to know I wasn't inadvertently lying!

As someone who writes for a living, to see a list in a publication I dream of being published in that is so wrong is infuriating.

It was probably wrong on purpose. Gotta think of those clicks.

I love this song, too, and I'm continually baffled as to why so many U2 fans don't.

That said, I couldn't care less whether somebody put it on a list or not.
