Joshua Tree Song Ratings

Hello,

I am planning to rate the songs of Joshua Tree and I need all of you to rank you all the songs of Joshua Tree ( album version). The song rated 1st would get 11 points and second 10 points and so on.. these ratings change but please rate as of now..
I know its quite difficult job..but lets do it .

I will compile the results on later next week. Please rank before that

Here is my rankings

1. WSHNN
2. One tree hill ( reminds me of a friend who died last year at the age of 23 )
3. I still havent found
4. Red Hill Mining ( most underated JT song)
5. Exit
6. In Gods Country
7. Running to a stand still
8. Bullet the blue sky ( i cant believe i am ranking this this low)
9. Mothers of the disappeared
10. WOWY ( see comment of 8)
11. Trip ( easiest choice to make..all songs better than this)

Numbers 4 though 9 were very, very hard to rank - I like them almost equally. I wasn't sure about 10 and 11 either. If you asked me tomorrow I might flip-flop them.

1. Where The Streets Have No Name (will one day go down with 'One' as the greatest U2 song of all time)
2. With or Without You (U2's finest studio moment)
3. Running To Stand Still (eerily hazy, very cinematic)
4. I Still Haven't Found... (Has Bono's voice ever sounded more compelling?)
5. On Tree Hill (it really says something about an album when a song this GREAT is this low in the rank)
6. Mothers of the Disappeared (raw, innovative, painful, beautiful, ingenius)
7. Bullet The Blue Sky (an evocative masterpiece: how does Edge make his guitar sound like an ambulance? also, see #5)
8. Exit (sinister, cold, heartbreaking, horror with a conscience, wrapped in empathy...talk about embracing the contradictions!
9. Red Hill Mining Town (such a great song...as good a song as 'Kite', and it's #9th best!!!)
10.In God's Country (would be one of the best songs off ATYCLB if it were included -- and so I ask again, how could it rank this low???)
11.Trip Through Your Wires (a great wide open song, and on any other album would be a centrepiece. The roots of The Joshua Tree lie in this song. Really needs to be played in the desert to be fully appreciated and understood)
