Replace a Song on Achtung Baby!!!

Part 1.

If you could replace 1 song on AB, which one would it be? (see poll)


Part 2.

Now, you need to replace that song with another one from the entire U2 collection - which one would that be? (answer in the thread)


I would replace EBTTRT with...

Lady With the Spinning Head
(sort of a prelude to the Fly a la Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the Moon" track scenario)

i'd replace so cruel with the 91 version (i.e. not the one from pop) of wake up dead man.

I could never ever change a single note of Achtung Baby. It's the one album that is sheer perfection from start to finish.

Tryin' to throw.. is my least favourite song on the album... but I still really like it. I might replace it with a recording of itself played the way they do it live.

I agree, but for the sake of the poll, I would vote off Zoo Station and replace it with Salome.

Easy; Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses is nixed in favor of the remix, which is really the definitive version anyway, of Lady With the Spinning Head. That, or the Temple Bar Edit (which I think is the longer, complete one, oddly), of itself. I just don't care for the mix that made the album.

Absolutely NONE of them! AB is a masterpiece and my favorite U2 album of all-time!

this poll sucks, why didn't you put an option that reads:

*replace no song on the album

The album is perfect, but if I must choose, I would get rid of Trying to Throw Your Arms Around the World.

Who the hell voted for "One"?...Not only is that arguably U2's best song, but without it, there may have NEVER been an Achtung Baby, Zooropa, Pop, or ATYCLB!!!!!

YOU CAN'T VOTE OFF ONE! It was the first song, it brought everything together! Who knows what would have happened if it wasn't written? U2 may have never been able to get it together.

I refuse to take this poll on the grounds that all of the options are fundamentally flawed.
