Zooropa definetly has staying power. In fact, I believe it ages like a quality red wine. It seems better and better over time. I have to say that Stay is the masterpiece here. Just as powerful as One and With or Without You. Plus, the video is my favorite one. Lemon and Zooropa are brilliant too.

I'll rank the songs in order of preference:

01. Lemon
02. Zooropa
03. Daddy's Gonna Pay For Your Crashed Car
04. Stay
05. Dirty Day
06. Numb
07. Some Days Are Better Than Others
08. The First Time
09. Babyface

Zooropa's a great album. I rank it behind HTDAAB, which is high praise seeing as my favourites rank in order of AB/JT/HTDAAB.

Its a great album..Zoorapa, Stay, Lemon, Numb, Wanderer, First Time etc..very solid entertaining stuff; but like Unforgettable Fire there are a few duff tracks that could have been replaced by good songs the band had kicking around at the time..

Anyway, its a veyr underrated album in general I think and an essential part of the early-90s feel of U2.

Lemon is definately my favorite, with Zooropa coming up a close second. Lemon was my favorite U2 song of all until Beautiful Day showed up. Every single time I hear Lemon, during the bridge, I am struck by the shear genius this band is capable of. Lemon has blown my mind like no other song ever.

Lemon is an epic masterpiece. Only Bad belongs to that group, considering U2 songs. Stay and live versions of Dirty Day are just below it. Zooropa is another great one.
The Wanderer is one of the songs which grew on me incredibly. I now rank it in my top 5 Zooropa songs.

1. Lemon
2. Dirty Day
3. Stay
4. Zooropa
5. The Wanderer
6. The First Time
7. Numb
8. Some Days Are Better Than Others
9. Daddy's Gonna Pay For Your Crashed Car

There are some dull songs in there(Babyface is BAD), which stops Zooropa for being in my list of U2's really great albums(AB, JT, HTDAAB, POP, UF)

Zooropa is my 3rd favorite U2 album next to AB and JT, Zooropa (the song) is magical, multi parted, irony laden, super tune...........

"Stay" is my personal favorite-that one would definitely go in my top ten U2 songs of all time. But I also particularly like "Numb", "Lemon", "The First Time", "Babyface", and "The Wanderer".

Zooropa is their best opening song after WTSHNN. It's the best song on a brilliant album.
