I was never good at reading directions, I've been told...

I voted for Mysterious Ways, Please, Love is Blindness, and One Tree Hill.

Bad is my favorite song of all time and all, but it's not really much of a solo and I didn't want to vote for 5 songs

Actually I have, remember the other night I listened to like 7 different versions, it rocks. But I couldn't remember the exact solo, and I'm still on U2 ban, and I had to vote for those others ones, and....

Actually, I really wanted to listen to Stuck in a Moment (acoustic, of course) earlier today when I was feeling shitty. But I stayed strong and opted to listen to Let it Be on repeat.

anyway, umm, One Tree Hill owns live

One Tree Hill! The extended solo on 26 December 1989 is perfect. That entire performance constitutes the best five minutes of music in history.

I also selected other so I could give 11 O'clock Tick Tock, God Part II, Hawkmoon 269, Desire, and All Along The Watchtower a mention. Wow, that last sentence literally screams "LOVETOWN FANATIC!"

Mysterious Ways, the extended solo was the best on popmart in my opinion.

Mysterious Ways is my favourite by far

but Love is Blindness gets an honourable mention.

One tree hill and God Part 2 are up there as well.

Love is Blindness and Mysterious Ways. Although I didn't vote for Mysterious Ways.

MW during concert two nights in a row... I never heard a song sound so good live. That's a lie, but you get the point.
