wink Just out of my curiosity - Rank Zooropa and its songs!

I'm really into this album atm, just wondering what everyone else here gives the songs out of 10, just out of interest I want to compare what some people think after 13 years of listening to it compared to under a month. Try to leave a comment too, it makes it more interesting and isn't just lists.

1. Zooropa - 8
2. Babyface - 7
3. Numb - 7
4. Lemon - 9
5. Stay - 8.5
6. Daddy's Gonna Pay For Your Crashed Car - 6.5 (So different! I'm warming to this quick)
7. Some Days Are Better Than Others - 7
8. The First Time - 5
9. Dirty Day - 7 (I still don't 'get' or like that father to son verse, it disrupts the song)
10. The Wanderer - 7

2. Zooropa - 10 (perfection)
3. Dirty Day - 9.5 (damn close to perfection)
4. The Wanderer - 9.25 (best lyrics of all time)
5. Daddy's Gonna Pay - 9 (funkytown groove)
6. The First Time - 8.75 (sweet serenity)
7. Numb - 8 (word)
8. Lemon - 3 (meh)
9. Some Days - 2 (worst lyrics ever)
10. Stay - -3 (boringest song in u2s catalogue)

1 -- Lemon 10
2 -- Daddy's Gonna Pay 9
3 -- The Wanderer 8
4 -- The First Time 8
5 -- Some Days 6
6 -- Dirty Day 6
7 -- Stay 6
8 -- Babyface 6
9 -- Numb 5
10 -- Zooropa 4


i really like Babyface. the only easy one to list was Lemon. Stay is only at 7 because of the Elevation boston performance. but if this is soley based on the album version it should be 10.

Stay is well known to be the classic from Zooropa, so people are just trying to be different and say they don't like it.

1 being AWFUL, 10 being best. Here goes:

1. Zooropa - 8.5
2. Babyface - 1
3. Numb - 1
4. Lemon - 1
5. Stay - 3 (album), 9 (acoustic live)
6. Daddy's Gonna Pay For Your Crashed Car - 1
7. Some Days Are Better Than Others - 1
8. The First Time - 1
9. Dirty Day - 1
10. The Wanderer - 1

This album is a joke. I'm not trying to stir the pot and I'm not trying to piss anyone off, I just would love to know how anyone could actually enjoy this album. My god, it's so bad. I just don't get it.
