In a Little While - it's like the audio version of a nice, soothing massage.

My thoughts exactly. There's so much passion/feeling/joy/love/soul etc in their music - I can't help but have my mind taken off whatever is stressing me out. I think I really take their music for granted sometimes; it does so much for me every day.

The First Time.

Though it does get a bit emotional at the end.

That's interesting, as I think Bad is one of U2's most intense songs ever....funny how that is soothing for you...and I can't really say that a soothing song for me always relaxes and calms me...

for me, the most soothing song would have to be Grace....listening to it daily is enjoyable and relaxing....listening to it in the rain, ineffable......It's the greatest example of how songs are transformed when the setting is right....Grace really connects with me on a far deeper level in a rainy setting...like while driving...and the windshield wipers add to the experience tremendously, seriously... preferably when on one of the slower settings

as for other soothing songs...Running To Stand Still, One Step Closer, Mothers of the Disappeared, Bass Trap, and I'd probably have to include I Still Haven't Found and Heartland...So Cruel a little too...but these songs aren't nearly as soothing as Grace for me

For me, streets is more uplifting and energizing than it is "soothing."
It's funny, as I'd completely agree with your comment that Bad is one of U2's most intense songs. However, at the same time, it is also the song I find most soothing... I can't describe why I feel this way... I just do. Lol.

Others I'd choose would be:

Bass Trap (which I lost when the hard-drive of my lap-top died, sob)
Promenade
Elvis Presley and America
MLK
Mothers of the Disappeared

I think BAD is very soothing despite its very rombustious texture. Its attitude in general can really let you sit down, pause at what you're thinking, and enjoy the music like the sounds of a roaring river.

Geez...I'm getting poetic here.
