Favorite song from ZOOROPA?

My favorite song from ZOOROPA is Stay(Faraway, So Close). It was my favorite the first time I listened to the album back on the first day of release in July 1993 and still is today. Great song and definitely a classic. Whats you favorite from the album?

My vote goes with Numb...
U2 have written a lot of great ballads (and stay is surely among them) and surely will, but i've got the feeling we won't hear nothing similar to Numb from our heroes...other than being the most (IMO)unconventional song ever written by U2 i think is something unrepeatable: a unique gem we were gifted of.

As much as I love Stay and The First Time, I have to go with Zooropa. This song just blows my mind.

Dirty Day.

For me, a difficult choice over Numb (what a concept). But Dirty Day is so dark and creepy ("I'm in you/More so when they put me in the ground." Whoa.) The vibe of the song sums up the whole album.

When it was first released, my favorite song was The Wanderer. Now, I've rediscovered Stay.

Wow...this one is almost as hard as the Achtung Baby poll...

I eventually chose Stay because I always get a kick out of it, no matter what my Interpretation of the Day is.

You don't smoke, don't even want to...

Dressed up like a car crash
The wheels are turning but you're upside-down
Has anyone else ever been dressed up like a car crash??? I spent a whole YEAR dressed up like a car crash!!!

You used to stay in to watch the adverts
You could lip-synch to the talk show hosts

A vampire or a victim
It depends on who's around

Stay. It was a hard choice, but Stay is my favorite U2 music video at the moment.
