What U2 song makes you stop what you are doing and leave Planet Earth?

...if it comes on the radio,jukebox or at home on the stereo that certain song that locks out all your thoughts, you are oblivious to your surroundings and people around you?

Now I'm not saying this is my all time fave (its close!) as there are just too many, but the one that makes me leave planet earth momentarily has to be.... Bad
(as well as WOWY,One, Pride, Stay, Kite, gah...now I'm defeating the objective here!)

Wots yours?

it really depends on my mood, but I'd have to say Stay & Kite do most often

I think every song of theirs has at one time or another

Bad, always that one. The song has some special power over me, from its very first chords it works almost like a trance.

Stay (Faraway, So Close) makes me wander to and unmarked place. Everytime I hear it I feel like it's just me and a wonderful angel carrying me away. *sigh*

Definitely WOWY. I was eating dinner with my mom and dad in a restaurant a few months ago and WOWY started playing over the sound system. I didn't hear a word of my parents' conversation until the song was over. That song is simply too beautiful and haunting to be treated as mere background noise.

One...

A couple years ago some friends and I were riding in my friend's van, and it came on the radio. We got to his house and he had to get out to get something. The rest of us stayed in the car, and I practically YELLED at him to keep the radio on and just started singing along, which is weird for me because I don't usually like to sing in front of people.

at home - the fly (elevation live) or streets

in the car, I'll freak out to here anything U2. especially Streets, Mysterious Ways, or WGRYWH. One day when I was driving, I actually heard New Year's Day on the radio. I almost drove off the road I was so excited.

I do that sort of thing too. I don't listen to the radio much, but when I do and they play U2, I totally freak out!
