Classic U2 song that deserves much more recognition than it has got. The problem is that it is only a bonus track on the UK version of ATYCLB so not everyone has heard it.
Yes, I agree. Not helping its cause is the fact that Salman Rushdie wrote the words (which I love btw) and that the band never plays the full-blown version of the song live. I mean, whatever happened to "my oh my, my oh my, let me rescue you..."

"And you'll be standing there, while the boats go by
While the boats go by on a Friday evening
Shining your light, shining your light on a Friday evening
Got to slip away, got to slip away down that ancient highway
In a town called Paradise, in a town, in a town
All along, all along that road, all along that road
All along that road with the trancelike vision..."

Hawkmoon 269. It is unknown by almost every non-U2 fan.

Yes, definately Heartland. Kind of buried, but in my opinion one of their purest songs.

Drowning man- if not for the emotion in Bono's voice

Surrender- I love everything about this song and in my subjective opinion it should of been number one everywhere in the world, no seriously it is a very good song

Heartland- Probably the best song of Rattle, I really love the brooding feel to this song and the lyrics, it should of been the next All I want is you.......

Gone- I can never understand why this song was not released as a single from Pop, I cringe everytime I think of Disco and realise that they released that song when they could of put out this gem of a song, like what were they thinking?????

I'd have to agree with everyone I think. So many good songs! Wild Irish Rose probably tps the list, though. Nobody knows about it and it's really good. Maybe one day it will make it on a B-side. Maybe.

Acrobat - Really powerful song!! It is one of my top u2 song about all time, and love the lyrics, about how you should express your feelings, even if the majority of the people think they are wrong, and without letting those people affect you.

Another great song without recognition is the ground beneath her feet, one of the best outros ever!!!
