Excluding ONE, what is your favorite song from ACHTUNG BABY?

Excluding ONE, what is you favorite song from Achtung Baby? I ask this because I know that ONE is by far the most popular song among fans from Achtung Baby. I wanted to see what songs would fall in line next after the mega popular ONE and avoid a poll where everyone votes for the same song.

i voted for "The Fly" though I think "Mysterious Ways" is the best song from that album, but that's because of its brilliance live

send lawyers, guns and money...

"Acrobat," with "Zoo Station" close behind. "Until the End of the World" and "Mysterious Ways" are the best live.

Why do we have to exclude One?
Leave One in there.
My fave is Acrobat and One doesn't come a close 4th even.

I excluded one because I thought the vast majority of people would have voted for that. Perhaps I made a mistake. Even if its not the most popular, its definitely in the top 4, and by excluding it, it makes the competition among the other songs a little tougher.

Definitely So Cruel for me. The song is among my 3 faves, along with Bad and Walk to the Water.

WGTRYWH without much hesitation, but Zoo Station is a very close second.

UTEOTW wins for me, amazing storytelling song, and also one of thier best live tracks imo. Edge shines on this song. A close second is So Cruel, great lyrics....

Definitely one of U2's most underrated songs IMO.

I must say, I am surprised at the poll so far. Acrobat is at 2nd place right now. I am surprised to see that. I more expected The Fly, Mysterious Ways, or even Who's Gonna Ride. None of those are in the top 3 right now (Until the End has 1, and UV has 3).

Great poll, and I like the exclusion of One! Makes it far more interesting.
