One at 35 kind of makes this a bit of a joke, and we're not even through Zooropa.

As for Zooropa, it's a 9 for me. Great, great song.
then what makes it a joke? :confused:

I don't feel like derailing the thread and/or starting some sort of silly argument since I think the thread where we rated One was a really long one, so if you really want to know you can PM me and I'll kindly reply. :confused:
U2 were never able to top this one. Sublime mixture of social commentary, introspection, and sheer joy. And that's just the lyrics. Easy 10.
A definite 10! Zooropa lacks any flaws and I daresay it is a perfect song. U2 executed the idea perfectly.

I simply ADORE this song. :up:

the closest we've got to Happiness is a Warm Gun, Bohemian Rhapsody, Paranoid Android or 42.

just brilliant from start to finish, and those final two minutes are some of the most inspired of their career. shame it never worked live.
it's one of the few songs i wouldn't mind seeing at #1.

no idea how ultraviolet got to #4... i love it and all, but i never knew we all loved it that much.
I'll give this a 7. Pretty good album opener, but as a song in itself is kind of average U2.
kind of average U2.

Well, I'm not sure Bono wouldn't agree with my rating, since the band quickly dropped it from the live set and have never stuck it on any of their compilations. (Then again, you could say the same of 'Ultraviolet', which is a stone-cold classic). Cute photo of young, hairy Bono though.
For the record, I'm perfectly fine with you being less than enamored with the song. As a matter of fact, I would prefer that you actively dislike the song so I'll have one less opinion to acknowledge. However, referring to the song as "average U2" insinuates that the average U2 song in some way resembles Zooropa. And I honestly don't want to love any band as much as I would U2 if that statement were true.
