voted WUDM, but it's not like you're comparing apples to apples here.

They're both about Bono trying to reach out to the higher being.

WUDM, for the spaghetti-western atmosphere

Tough one
I'd have to go with WUDM though. I agree with 2233, more relevant lyrics. Both have great melodies.

In case you didn't know, Bono mentioned in the Rolling Stone Interview that Gloria was a "Byzantine attempt to sing your way into the kingdom of heaven." ... whatever that means

A rousing early landmark vs. a forgotten snoozebound closer.

I adore Gloria, but I have to go with WUDM here. I actually just sang it this morning in the shower. :blush:

I voted Gloria. Such exuberance, so uninhibited and energetic. It changes my mood, listening to it.

WAKE UP DEAD MAN all the way. It is the furthest Bono has ever ventured away from the graces of Popes and politicians.

Wow... this is close. WUDM EDGES out Gloria 4 me, but that's probably based on what mood I've been in....

Despite I'm in love with Pop I have to agree that Gloria is better

I think Wake Up Dead Man (ghastly title really) is one of the best songs on Pop
Gloria = Gloria though and definitely my favourite out of the 2
