In the form of a poll

I usually see this album as being split into 2 parts.

The first half being more traditionally U2/AB like the 2nd half being much more experimental.

Anyway...such a great unique album deserves a poll all its own.

Grrrr. This is hard. I finally chose The First Time - it is beautiful and haunting, especially at the end when Bono keeps singing, "And I threw away the key." But I also love Zooropa, one of U2's most underrated songs ever.

It's close for me between the first five songs, but I'd give Lemon a slight edge over the others simply for Bono's over the top singing. This is such a great album all the way through though and the songs tend to flow together as one, so it's really hard to pick a favorite track.

"Stay" is one of my top three fave U2 songs. It's heartachingly beautiful... "heartachingly" a word???? *lol*
"Knight in shining Zubaz."

Zooropa's second half rocks, which puts it in first place. My second fave: Some Days.

Why are you ducking? Some Days rocks!

But my vote had to go to Zooropa. So freaking brilliant.

Actually, I think that The First Time could have fit nicely on Joshua Tree, too.

Stay...But Zooropa would be my second choice, which is cool because they appear to be tied at the moment.

I really love Stay, Zooropa, and Lemon... in that order I think.

I love Numb, Babyface, Dirty Day, The First Time, too.

The answer is "Lemon". It sums up the whole album in my opinion and musically it is sensational.

Lemon just beats The Wanderer

Stay or :lemon: . I prefer the live version of Stay, though.

She wore :lemon: but never in the daylight.......

I love Stay, but the album version just doesn't do it for me. Live versions are so much better.

It was hard for me to choose, but I voted for Dirty Day. I just really love that song! Stay and Zooropa were a close 2nd and 3rd, though.
