U2's Saddest Song

Whic U2 song stirs such deep emotion in you that you want to cry? In other words, what is U2's saddest song?

I'm going for "Running to Stand Still," although "October" comes a close second

Discotheque - it's definitely the song that saddened the most fans when they realized U2 had gone techno and trip-hop on them.

Cheers,

J

Tomorrow (though it ends on an upbeat note)
Kite (very bittersweet, Bono's singing is very emotional and beautiful)
Mothers of the Disappeared (what an awful thing to happen, and an evil government to carry it out!)

Tomorrow. Not very many songs make me cry, but this one does.

It's hard to get more depressing than "Mothers of the Disappeared." Maybe "One Tree Hill" because of that cello.

For true sadness, I think Running to Stand Still is on its own.
