"U2 Once and For All Part I": RESULT!

Hello again,

Firstly I would like to apologise in the delay in totalling the results of the 'Best Album' vote (you can find the thread here ). The voting was extensive and I had a few problems with the addition and point marking of the songs.
I would also like to thank all who took part and can deliver you the following statistics:

- There were 49 unique members who chose to vote
- They each picked 5 songs, totalling 245 songs selected
- In all, 52 unique songs were chosen, at least one from each of the ten studio albums U2 have produced
- Out of the other albums, Under A Blood Red Sky and the Passangers Soundtrack are the only ones with none of their songs voted from
- October and Rattle & Hum fared equally bad, with only one song voted from in each, while Achtung Baby had the most tracks voted from from an album - 9 of its 12 tracks
- SURPRISES:
- Desire - 0pts.
- Who's Going To Ride Your Wild Horses - 0pts.
- Exit - 0pts.
- Pride - 14pts. (behind Heartland, The First Time, North and South of the River, When I Look at the World & Zooropa)
- Even Better Than The Real Thing, Zooropa, Acrobat & North and South of the River getting first choice votes


So now, without further delay, is the TOP 10 U2 songs, as voted by you the members of U2 Feedback....

I like what I've seen so far. Two of my favorites from my favorite U2 album.

...I think you've all guessed No. 1 by now...

By just THREE points from #2 and, despite having less unique votes than second place, the U2 Feedback BEST U2 Song goes to...

ONE

...From: Achtung Baby (1991) - Track 3

21 unique votes
242pts.

'One' has long since been a fan favourite, still strong past it's tenth year of release. The song, a mega-hit single from the Achtung Baby album, has had it's meaning constantly speculated at. Many believe the song is written in connection with the AIDS crises, supported by the 'AIDS version' of the One video, featuring a Bull in slow motion jumping of a cliff and the message "smell the flowers while you can". Whatever the reason, One is sure to go down in history as one of the best written, best known and best loved songs of all time.

... And there you have it!

Again, a kind thanks to all who voted.

What I am trying to accompish with the 'U2 Once and For All' series is to try and resolve age-old U2 arguments with the majority vote from U2 fans across the globe. In other words, next time you're arguing that "One" is better then "Streets", link to this thread!

Hopefully, with God's blessings, I will be back very soon with another 'U2 Once and For All',

Until that time,

Walk on!
