Edge time! what's your favorite U2 song, if you only consider the guitar

with or without the solo, in chronological order.

with solo:
1) Pride
2) The fly
3) UTEOTW
4) Kite
5) WILATW

without the solo:
1) Bad
2) WOWY
3) Heartland
4) Light my way
5) Always

honorable mentions:
1) Promenade
2) Streets
3) One (along with pretty much all of AB)
4) Some days are better than others (because it's so different) and Babyface
4) solo in If you wear that velvet dress/Gone
5) New York/Walk on/In a little while


best riffs:
the ones on AB can all share Top 5, i think. with BD and Zooropa.

"be uncool, yes be awkward" - Always

Always hard to choose favourite anythings for me U2girl, but just the other day I put on a U2 album. I was outside working in the garden and an intro to a song started and it brought out the most powerful memories/emotion in me. I said at the time, as I dashed inside to turn it up, that is THE U2 song for me.I had so much hope back then when I first heard it..I see it topped your list
As me tomorow and I'd have a different answer. Isn't that another amazing thing about U2, the breadth of their talent, just how many great songs they have created?

All I want is You - just bloody unbelievable and not just at the end - Edge builds up slowly throughout the song and then just lets it rip - God I love it !!

also Bullet the Blue sky( visually breathtaking on R&H video)and The fly of course

must go - will be late for wrk

Actually a good question I think.
My picks would be:

"Heartland"
"Until the End of the World"
"Please"

and of course ... "The Fly"

Couldn´t say it better myself Pamela, All I Want is You was the one that came to my mind when I read this topic. And pay attention to the version from Irving Plaza as well, I´m used to listen to it over and over, just because Edge´s guitar.

And from ATYCLB, I would go whit When I Look at The World, I wonder how amazing this song would be live.

Well, I love the Edge part in "Love is blindness" and I can´t help to turn the system to full power when UTEOTW starts!

Go Edge!!!

Larry looked like some kind of porn star. Edge looked like his sister Jill, I looked like Barbara Bush and Adam hasn't taken the dress off.

MW solo makes me lose all control completely.
If Edge asked me to die for the Edges SOlos Cause then and there, id jump off a cliff in a second.
