The most underrated U2 song is....

ELECTRICAL STORM

I never hear anyone talk about, ever. It is never mentioned in dicussions about U2 favorites. Why?? Electrical storm is an awesome song that deserves more attention. Anyone agree/disagree? And what do you think is U2's most underrated song?

GRACE, 'cause it has the same harmonies as the overrated SYCMIOYO (tough, you think you’ve got the stuff...)
immho - in my mega humble opinion)

Electrical Storm gets TOO much ink around here - I'm surprised by your opening statement. And, I think its stinks

Agreed, but only the William Orbix remix.

Electrical Storm is a great song

Most Underated? Something like Drowning Man, or Mothers of the Disappeared.

I agree about Electrical Storm, and my father actually thinks Wire is one of the best rock songs ever written.

Basically anything off of October.

I've never seen any topiX about "Rejoice Appreciation Thread" or "I love I Threw a Brick!"

It's almost like the album everyone forgot.

Yea totally. I was reading a thread on some poll they did on a fansite about albums and songs etc. and on the least favorite album chart October was 2nd to last, only Passengers beat it. Why do so many people dislike, or forget about the album. I think it's one of their best. the songs are beautiful. Lots of piano and badass guitar riffs (rejoice) and cool bass breaks live (ITABTAW) amazing album. Maybe I'll make a thread about it one day so i can share the amazingingness that is October!

I find it even better than War (and not only, probably......), it's an album you never get tired to listen to

I agree with Electrical Storm. It's a beautiful song. I would also add I Fall Down, Drowning Man, Walk to the Water, Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses, and If God Will Send His Angels to the underrated list.
