The mood of U2's music

During all those years, U2 have written very diverse music. From the simple 'I Will Follow' to 'Mofo' or 'The Fly' they always changed...

All the different kinds of music they created have a particular mood...

Just listen to Love Is Blindness or the live version of Bullet and Blue Sky and you'll know what I mean.

Some songs they wrote have dark music, others have really joyous music...

I think the most 'joyous' U2 song musically is Angel of Harlem. But yesterday, when I was listening to One Tree Hill, I noticed how light and easy going the music is. It doesn't seem as sad as the lyrics. It's a huge contrast when you think about it.

Are there any other songs that give you the same impression?

(just changing subject from the ridiculous bashing of the incredibly awesome third leg )
