love is blindness.

kill me all you want. 'take the money/honey' is laughable.

edit: that said I think I'll probably sit out the whole thing after this. AB is one of my fav. fav. fav. fav. fav. albums ever and this is nigh impossible.

Tryin' To Throw Your Arms Around The World is most certainly the worst song on Achtung Baby, even if it has the funny "A woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle" line. It has to go.

What the fuck!! Ultraviolet is one of my favourite of the album!
This will be very difficult, I dont know If my favourite is Until the End, Fly, Acrobat or Ultraviolet...

But now, my vote: SO CRUEL

PS: Agreed, Achtung Baby is my favourite album
PPS: Trying To Throw Your Arms is soooooooo relaxing I love it ... its better than Cruel (IMO an overrated song)
