Until The End Of The World vs. Stay

Hey guys - back for another round!

I'm going to make it clear what my vote is from the get-go: UTEOTW. It's one of my favorite U2 songs, with some of Bono's best lyrics, in my opinion. Such a dark song, too. Perfect.

But Stay is also so great. Again, pretty dark lyrics, which was one of the things I loved about this whole era. Great, unique theme too...I think it's the only time Bono's touched on domestic abuse in his songs (to my knowledge).

Both of these songs have a whole lot going for them, but everyone has a favorite, so why not let us know which one you prefer, and why!

-Migdilio

UTEOTW
They shall go on, my Canadian friend, as long as I find the ensuing discussions worthwhile.

If you would like to continue responding to them, that would be awesome. If you get bored with them, c'est la vie.

Until The End Of The World.
It's the best song ever.
Stay is great, but Until The End Of The World is much more epic, it lets you explode with feeling.

Stay in a blow-out. And that's even though UTEOTW is an awesome song! But Stay is one of their most beautiful songs ever.

imo, Stay is good too, though UTEOTW would rip it apart in any competetion song-wise.

Yet again, it would do that to most songs by anyone ever.

I'm voting for Stay. That doesn't detract from UTEOTW, because it has an awesome story and a razor-sharp guitar sound, but Stay is brilliant.

Has anyone seen any of Wim Wenders' films?
