What's the best U2 soundtrack song?

Now that we've all had time to let THTBA set in, how does it compare to the other big soundtrack songs U2 have done? HMTMKMKM was obviously a pretty big hit, and TGBHF was a lesser hit, but I think both are excellent songs too. Stateless, though far less popular, was a pretty good song too from the MDH soundtrack. I included the Mission Impossible remix because, even though it was only Adam and Larry, it still was a pretty big hit, and a great mix. So pick the best song written specifically for a movie soundtrack.

Gotta go with HMTMKMKM, thatīs a great, great song. Although I read somewhere that the song was not written expecifically for the film Batman Forever but it would be a Zooropa left over or something...does anybody know about that?

Ooh...I think I'll go with "Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me" as well. It is, as someone once said in a review of that soundtrack on the Epinions.com site, "a bitchin' U2 song". .

"The Hands That Built America" and "The Ground Beneath Her Feet" are cool, too, though (and hey, let's not forget "If God Will Send His Angels", from the "City Of Angels" movie as well as "Elevation" from the "Tomb Raider" movie).

Well obviously my only choice is HMTMKMKM

I can see how someone who likes "hands" would just love "stateless", though.

How "elevation" was left off, I'll never know

Elevation wasn't written specifically as a soundtrack song. Even though it was slightly remixed, it still originally appeared on ATYCLB, so I'm not counting it in this poll. If I had included it, I would have had to include All I Want Is You, The First Time, ISHFWILF, IGWSHA, and several others as well. I thought about adding Stay, but in the end decided not to.

I think the BEST one is missing in this poll, I doubt that any movie in history would have a better beggining than the way Bono opens In The Name Of The Father.

Yeah that's another one I really considered adding, but then it is a Bono solo project. Although the MI remix is just Adam and Larry, but it was such a huge radio hit... oh well it was just a personal choice I guess.
