Best U2 Songs

Consisting of Bono, The Edge, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen Jr., this Irish rock band is arguably the greatest rock band in the world.

The Top Ten

With or Without You
Great song! #1 I absolutely love it, full of emotion & very original song! Go on with your incredible songs... !
This was a hard choice. Good list by the way.


Effing awesome song!
all time favourite and a very original one. By far the best composition by U2
[Newest]Learning this song on guitar helped me to realize how phenomenal this song is, truly breathtaking.
More comments about With or Without You

"the song is really fantastic, it moves people... Such an inspiring song... "
If I had to pick one song to listen to for all of eternity, it would either be this or Born to Run. This song makes me want to cry every time I listen to it and the message is absolutely beautiful. Bono and his friends really outdid themselves.
The best song EVER!
But the cover feat Mary is amazing, better than the original!
Never let a bad taste in your mouth
[Newest]Such a great song that is timeless, meaningful, beautiful, and both sad and uplifting at the same time. Definitely one of the best songs ever made, not just by U2, but overall!

3Beautiful Day
the dynamic of this song is outstanding, close call, but I think it's the top one for U2
This is the best U2 song by far because it sounds epic and and it is structured so well and the edges guitar playing is legendary and bono's vocals are sick as but all round the song is awesome
The beat and song structure brings this song together.
[Newest]My favourite tune from u2 by far

4Sunday Bloody Sunday
This is not a protest song... This is the best song ever. If this doesn't make you want to change the world, you need to get your pulse checked.
Actually if you look into it its more a propaganda song against the british, yes it sounds good but its also bull.
This song is just amazing. Honestly, how is this not unanimously #1? The almost military-esque drumbeat, the beautiful lyrics, the catchy guitar riff. And to top it all off, the live version is just as amazing. Woo!
Takes everything great U2's done before and puts it into one song, but it's free of a lot of the mistakes they've made before and has elements they've never had before, with an important message.
[Newest]The Best. 'enough said.

5Where the Streets Have No Name
If this song doesn't chills down your spine, you have no soul.


This is one of the greatest songs ever made.

"I wanna reach out, and touch the flame. "
I was born to the sound of U2 - no joke. And I've never turned back. This song may have been released years before I first entered the world, but it is by far the greatest thing I've ever heard. This is not U2's best song; this is the world's greatest song. 5th place is not good enough for this masterpiece!
[Newest]Got to be in the top 3. Amazing song. With U2 was still this good
More comments about Where the Streets Have No Name

6I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For
For me, this song is about having got religion, having got dogma, and the soul still yearns for something more real, that thing, whatever it is, that burns deep within us; forever pushing us to keep exploring, to keep searching, to keep´╗┐ living in the moment, to keep evolving spiritually; forever moving forward and breaking boundaries, both within us, and without us; because in Truth, God has no boundaries and you can't put God in a book or a box and say, "Well, here it is! By George, I think we got it!
What? Are you kiding me?
This song deserves at least a TOP 5!
Come on, people, vote more this song, is the best song ever!
And yes, I Still haven't found what I'm looking for, this song at top 5! ;)
Agree with you what the hell your song number 8 are you kidding me people. This is song is so good. I love this is song.


[Newest]Between this and With or Without You is my favorite... Both of these songs have affected me.

This song though is my personal life anthem

7Pride (In the Name of Love)
One BAND come in the name of love, one BAND named U2.


this has to be at least in top 5!
3/beatiful day
5/new years day


just can beat it. this song is almost anthem of rock history
[Newest]On this song, Bono sang with more power than he ever has or probably ever will again.

I don't know I just think its a really good song, its upbeat and different, keeps the blood pumping
I think this song is all about just screaming jumping up and down and being in a better place they call that place vertigo.
Ultimate song for me at least! Awesome music, excellent vocals! Can listen to this song over and over again! Seriously should be much higher on the list..
[Newest]Best song of u2 for me

9New Year's Day
This is classic U2 that really demonstrates how good they really are - musically and vocally. Their best song ever!
Yes, we can break through. We can begin again. There is hope for the human race. U2 is about hope, and this is their best song.

I remember me laying on my bed, when I turn the radio on and this melody simply pass through my ears, the piano intro, the perfect bass from Clayton... ! This song is simply "orgasmic" :')


[Newest]First U2 song I heard on the radio back in 1983. Wow! Adams bass is awesome.

10City of Blinding Lights
Huh... I can NOT believe this is 10th
COME ON PEOPLE! Check it out on youtube-listen to the whole thing and be AMAZED
The promotional video is cool and the music is great. The song for sept 11 victims


10th?! How in the name of all that's Holy did this end up so low?
It's got literally everything going right for it. I'm in a different world when I listen to this song.
[Newest]It can't be 10th people... Its way is way up ahead

The Contenders

I've been a huge fan of U2 since forever and as much as I like many of their songs I only love 2 beyond words: All I want is you and this one. Every time I hear Bad I demand silence, and I do get very emotional listening to it. There's only another song in music history that makes me feel like that, and it's Pink Floyd's Wish you were here. That's how great this song is.


Definitely their best song live. It seems like they can drag the song out forever and it just keeps coming at you, it doesn't fade away at all, if you'll pardon the pun. So many different versions as well. A very emotional song obviously for Bono losing his friend on his 21st Birthday to a heroin overdose, and I think that raw emotion comes out in the live performances.
So amazing, emotional, heartfelt... Find the versions from Rattle and Hum and Live Aid on YouTube and you will see how it takes on a whole new level of intensity and passion in a live setting. And it has Bono's best-written, most powerful lyrics:

"If I could, through myself, set your spirit free
I'd lead your heart away, see you break, break away
Into the half light, and through the flame"
[Newest]Bad is not just a song, it is a moment in one's life.

12Mysterious Ways
What kind of craziness is this? Scroll down, people and vote this song! The song is rocking! The only thing better than hearing this on a radio is hearing it live.
How can this be all the way down here this is one of their best songs
The chorus can literally send such powerful emotions down one's spine!
[Newest]Not my favorite but it should be in the top 10

13Walk On
Are you people serious? This song should be top 10 have any of you even heard it. The embodiment of rock
This is #12? Should be in the top FIVE at least. It's my second favorite behind Pride (in the name of love) and I think the problem is nobody has heard it. This is such an amazing song. "You could have flown away... a singing bird in an open cage... that would only fly, only fly for freedom..." now those are some of the best lyrics ever.
HOW in the name of God is this #31?!?!? Are you people serious? Go and listen to this song right now and tell me it shouldn't be in the top 10.

14 best song? You gotta be kidding me!
One of their best...
An epic, epic song with clever lyrics and awesome melody
This is U2's best song along with Beautiful Day and Vertigo. If you don't agree, you're a mole diggin' in a hole.

15I WIll Follow
Classic! First big U2 hit! How could this song be out of the top 10?
This one could replace Vertigo or City of Blinding Lights which came very late on U2's career!
THIS IS A U2 CLASSIC deserves to be in top ten.

16Love Comes Tumbling
Three Sunrises and this - top ten for me.


In magnificent, U2 are NOT lyrically very convincing, the song being about two lovers finding 'common ground' and devoting their life to worship, as quoted by Bono. But the fresh composition and clever use of African percussion and other sounds, notably the unique chord progressions and a very supportive bass gave me an almost transcendental listening experience.

Magnificent was the highlight of it's album but wasn't a chart topper, maybe because that album was too much experimental in conception.

The song might never be mentioned along with the likes of one, Beautiful day, WOWY, WTSHNN, Pride, Sunday Bloody Sunday or even lesser mass favourites such as All I want is you, vertigo etc, but the fact is that it had me hooked on to it for almost 2 years and I used to listen to it at least twice/thrice daily for that period GETS IT MY VOTE. It's not the best but being the first U2 song that I heard, it introduced me to the awesome U2 and their classics mentioned above and then further making U2 my Heroes, my most favourite and perhaps the biggest band still playing and rocking the world today.
awesome song... just listen to it guys only once and am sure you gona vote for it... should be in top 3...

Awesome song... No doubt one of the best song of u2. This song magnificent is really magnificent. Hey guys please vote for this song. This song is awesome cool. Just listen to it, specially the guitar portion is awesome. And of course it... Should be in top 3
[Newest]For me this song expresses a feeling of falling in love

18Stuck in a Moment You Can't Get Out Of
Why? Haven't anyone listened this song?
It is far better than most other songs, at least it deserves a healthy position in top five, doesn't it?
16! That's too down below for this amazing song.there is a flow to this song rivalled by few!
Too down for an amazing song like this! Deserves to be in top 5 at least!

19All I Want is You
What the hell!? This should be on the first page, that's probably why it hasn't been pushed up because most people haven't noticed it. This song has the most incredible trance-like riff out of all of U2's songs, and provides the greatest feeling out of any of their songs. It is the only one of their songs which has the ability to make me cry of happiness, that's how powerful it is.
#105? ARE YOU KIDDING ME? What's going on? Its not even on the first page! Give me a break! This is a top 5 song in my opinion, and should be in EVERYBODY'S top 15 or 20.
My top 5:
1. With or Without You
2. Where the Streets Have No Name
3. All I Want is You
4. One
5. Sometimes You Can't Make it on Your Own

All I Want is You to vote for this song!
It's a ballad!
All I Want is You, all the way down here? Listen to this song guys! It just exemplifies so much of what makes U2 great. One of their best pieces instrumentally (the Edge goes off! ), Bono's vocals are fantastic and lyrics are amazing. Definitely top 3 for mine.
[Newest]This needs to be in top 10.. What a composition..

20Ultraviolet (Light My Way)
I have been listening to U2 for A LONG TIME and I always come back to this one. Actung Baby gave us many great songs and Ultraviolet, although not everyones favourite, is a stand out for me. It is great in all of it's incarnations. I absolutely love the 360 degree dvd version, stoked that it made it on to U22!
the undercover gem of "Achtung baby"
U2 themselves have said this is their most complete song
[Newest]Simple the best song of U2

21Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own
Makes me cry every time I listen to it. Maybe music is the light at the end of the tunnel... It is the only thing that keeps me going sometimes.
No way this song isn't top 10. Me my sister and my girlfriend all love this song and it should be top five if not #1. Top ten in my opinion:
One - sometimes you can't make it on your own - with or without you - where the streets have no name - I still haven't found what I'm looking for - window in the skies - Sunday bloody Sunday - bad - love is blindness - ultra violet
Awesome lyrics and one of the best songs... must be higher in the list
[Newest]What I like about this song is, that it is not that well known. Unlike some others (With or Without You, I still haven't found what I'm looking for.. ), you don't hear it at the radio all the time. Amazing lyrics and music! Also, the video is great!

22Moment of Surrender
best song of u2, as good as one, with or without you and I still h... surprised to see it was not in the list already, so I had to add it. the ending is especially good and gives me goose pimples. the entire song is billiant musically and lyrically. bono's vocals are as good as ever. this takes the crown. I listen to it everyday.


I Love The Song! Moment of surrender is one of the best songs from u2 ever, especially the version from u2 Rose Bowl 360*... ;P It deserves to be in top 10 after my opinion. ROCK & ROLL forever! U2 Forever! Also please put Stuck In a Moment in top 10, please! ;P
This chart shows that people do not listen to entire albums and vote just for fun... This is absolutely one of their best even better than one and with or without you!
[Newest]Best songs of U2, from this last 10 years!

23Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me
I like this song alot and agree that it is on the top ten.
Something to headbang to that throws a sprinkle of disturbing material in there.


This is such an underrated song.

"This song is about letting go of somebody you don't wanna let go of..
Could be a lover, could be a father, could be a friend, could be a child, this is Kite."
Bono is legendary!
Definitely, one of U2's most under-rated song!
The emotion behind this song is just overwhelming.
Oh my word! It can't be possible for one band to make this much good music! This song is simply Amazing. The words are meaningful, in true U2 style. But the music! Flip Banana!
Can't believe this is so low.

25The Fly
Probably one of U2's most original sounding songs. For many Rock fans who claim all of U2s work sounds the same, bono cant write, or the edge cant play, this is a disappointment because its such an amazingly written original sounding song with probably the greatest post-70s guitar solo.
The first song I heard from Achtung Baby. Didn't quite know what to make of it, as it sounded so different from The Joshua Tree era. But it is absolutely brilliant! Look, I gotta go, I'm runnin' out of change. There's a lot of things, if I could I'd rearrange.
This song is seriously under rated, one of the great rock songs. It's original as hell, dark, mysterious, and it rocks. They've done great stuff since, still, nothing on quite on the same trajectory as this was.

26The Unforgettable Fire
Very under-rated. It deserves to be in the top ten at the very least.
Your only rivers run cold
These city lights
They shine as silver and gold
Dug from the night
Your eyes as black as coal"
The song is gripping from the very start with its profound lyrics and ambient guitar play
Haunting, chilling and amazingly composed. U2's best song
This song makes me get two kinds of emotion.
First, there is this emotion of being on a party but going outside, a feeling not to explain, just to feel on parties or anything.
On the other hand, there is this emotion of pure feelings rising up, so hard they sometimes make me cry.
[Newest]Atmospheric. A brilliant composition piece.

27Even Better Than the Real Thing
This is the best song from U2 in my opinion because it epitomizes everything... Beat, lyrics, crazy Edge guitar work, great bass line and they play with the dynamics. Just perfect.
In my opinion "Even Better than the Real Thing" deserves to be in the top-5 of U2.

28One Tree Hill
This is an amazing song from the Joshua Tree. You know, when I always listen to it, I think of the ocean and its view, the peacefulness and... Everything!
This is a very underrated song and there best along with The Unforgettable Fire and Red Hill Mining Town.
This is a great song... this should be in the top ten..!

29Running to Stand Still
How can this some be so far down the list? U2's best ever lyric, a haunting portrayal of drug addiction in Ballymun. Played Live and acoustic this song is almost spiritual, always gives me a tingle when I hear it.
A lot to choose from, but this should really be in the top three. The lyrics work so well on two levels: they are poetic AND full of realism.
This song made me fall in love with U2. Pretty surprised to see it this down on rank :/
And its quite better then some of the songs in top 10. So it should be in top ten for sure!
[Newest]Best U2 song second to With or Without You. Its beautiful and captivating and deserves more recognition.

30Miss Sarajevo
This is Bono's favourite song! How can it be so low! The melody in the song is pretty awesome! Definitely one of the greatest rock songs I have ever heard

31Every Breaking Wave
"If you go? If you go your way and I go mine. Are we so? Are we so helpless against the tide! " Just wonderful lyrics! This song just soothes you and is definitely got to be the best track on 'songs of innocence' Wish U2 keeps making songs like these, can't stand the new music coming out nowadays...
God this song is insane! Best from the Songs of Innocence! Carries a beautiful message, a message that could send a chill down your spine!
"If you go...
If you go your way and I go mine
Are we so...
Are we so helpless against the tide?
Baby, every dog on the street
Knows that we're in love with defeat
Are we ready to be swept off our feet
And stop chasing every breaking wave? "
I really love this song... It gives me so much energy... Life is full of these tides which com toward u, that's the way life is
Every dog on the street knows that we are in love with defeat! Is explain everything
Its just awesome
[Newest]The lyrics are amazing

32Sweetest Thing
How is this not in the top ten? This song is beautiful, and everyone would be able to relate to it.
"I'm losing you... Oh... I'm losing you... Ain't love the sweetest thing? "
Love the music video.. Very good song. Makes you proud to be Irish
I love this song very much and all time greatest for me.

33Love Is Blindness
Beautiful song, can't understand why it's so low. It contains a lot of emotion in it. The solo version of the edge is also magnificent. He broke up with his wife and played this song, broke 2 times the strings but replaced them and kept going on.

First song I ever heard from U2, thanks to MTV. I thought, "Cool, who is this band? " Then a year later, heard New Year's Day, and thought, "Ok, WHO is this band?! "

35Ordinary Love
Come on! This song deserves to be in the top 10.
I can listen to it over and over again and never get bored. Once you listen to this song you can't stop singing it. TRUST ME
In a way it's sad, U2 has really only made 3 songs that have a nice beat, good guitars, and are more than bono and edge just playing guitars and basically talking to each other or the listener. Ordinary love is one of the 3 along with New Year's Day and Sunday Bloody Sunday, and ordinary love is the best of the 3.
1 ordinary love
2 New Year's Day
3 Sunday Bloody Sunday
Awesome new trend.. !
[Newest]We can't reach any higher if we can't deal with ordinary love

The very best song of U2. A great climax building.
This Song is a Hidden Champion. A Real " grower"!

37Bullet the Blue Sky
It appears to have been inspired by the Hendrix style. The tones are all over the place and yet it is cohesive and emotional. Hendrix would have covered this piece.


Man this song is the BEST OF OF U2, I don't understand why it is not at the top of the list
It deserves much more better position.

38I'll Go Crazy If I Don't Go Crazy Tonight
This song is gold! Absolute magic when heard live as well...
Arguably there best song on there 'No Line On The Horizon' Album.
Great tune, definitely worth listening too. Top chorus and should be way higher
Amazing song... Can't believe it's so low!

39Red Hill Mining Town
This song has great lyrics and brilliant music.. Everybody pLeaSe LISTEN 2 THIS SONg! Its aMAZING
simply the best...great emotion and lyrically well written
The vocals and emotion in this song are simply phenomenal. Far and away my favourite U2 song!

I do not have a favourite U2 song, so I am voting for this one because it is the most deserving to be higher than it is right now.

So much energy and passion, to dance to this song is to do what everyone else in the world should be doing. Quality tune.
Classic song with an addictive sound that deserves to be much higher on the list.
This song got to number 1 in many countries and also got in the top 10 in many countries so this song should be higher up this list it's a great song with a great beat and lyrics


41Stay (Faraway, So Close!)
I consider this by far the best song of U2 and in general the period was one of the most artistic or original for the band, love the "berlin-era". cobain and vedder described what was in the hearts of one part of USA generation, 2pac of the hidden US generation and U2 how we felt in Europe in the same period.
No way this song is not inside the top 10.. Personally I consider this as good as One for sure. The melody and the music is great and it's creating a great atmosphere!
Just the bang and the clatter when an angel hits the ground... Wow
Best story song by them.. So sad... Yet hopeful
[Newest]One of the best of u2. Beautiful music, painfully amazing lyrics and tremendous Vocals.


"Your gonna meet here there, she's your destination, there's no sleeping there, she's imagination." The final 2:30 minutes of this song is some of the best music any band has ever made.
i think this is problably th best song of u2 is just simply peacefully..
such a beautiful song. only discovered it recently

44Window In the Skies
The shackles are undone
The bullets quit the gun
The heat that's in the sun
Will keep us when there's none
The rule has been disproved
The stone it has been moved
The grave is now a groove
All debts are removed

Oh can't you see what love has done?
Oh can't you see what love has done?
Oh can't you see what love has done?
What it's done to me?

Love makes strange enemies
Makes love where love may please
The soul and its striptease
Hate brought to its knees
The sky over our head
We can reach it from our bed
You let me in your heart
And out of my head, head

Oh can't you see what love has done?
Oh can't you see what love has done?
Oh can't you see what love has done?
What it's done to me?

Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Please don't ever let me out of you

I've got no shame, oh no, oh no

Oh can't you see what love has done?
Oh can't you see?
Oh can't you see what love has done?
What it's doing to me?

I know I hurt you and I made you cry
Did everything but murder you and I
But love left a window in the skies
And to love I rhapsodize
To every broken heart
For every heart that cries
Love left a window in the skies
And to love I rhapsodize
I love "One", "With Or Without You", "All I Want Is You" and many more of their songs, but this song just hits straight to my heart...
Such a moving song. I can't believe it is this low!

45Electrical Storm
Can't get this song outta my head. So haunting, and the video is a work of art as well

46If God Will Send His Angels
Iris got all the attention, but listen to the album again. This is by far the best song from the City of Angels soundtrack, a soundtrack that ranks among the best ever.
I love this song... it's always been one of my favorites by this band... and not many people are familiar with it... just a beautiful piece of work!

47Miracle Drug
I love this for it┬'s uplifting effect and the lyrics are sheer beauty
Dear U2 lovers... You gotta listn this with the story based to this song.. Check out with google.. You will be amazed of it... Trust me it will...!
The top songs seem to be reserved for the singles. If this was a single, it would be in the top 10.
U2 fans, this may be Edge's best solo and vocals yet.
True teamwork made this song make hearts sing.
[Newest]Best song and feel, I think too underrated

48No Line On the Horizon
The greatest one, perfect!

49So Cruel
The most touching, heartfelt song I've ever listened to. Although the melody might be simplistic, the piano and lyrics have such good chemistry, that the passion just flows out of the song.
So many great lines in a song make it my favorite U2's song. I had heard it for years associating these lines with personal experiences and enjoying it again and again. It passed quite a long time before I realized what it really was about: a guy dealing with his girlfriend/wife closet homosexuallity. Bono's such a great lyricist.
Personally the best U2 song. Probably the best and most touching lyrics that Bono ever wrote.

Sends shivers down your spine when you listen to it... U2 at their very best.
thanks to Rattle and Hum, makes me think of how great Elvis was


51Until the End of the World
The lyrics for the song... fabulous, beautiful. And it's dark in such a crazy way. Every instrument is beautifully played.
Love the jungle opening until the Edge moves in and takes over the song. Fantastic layering and production.
forget 'smells like teen spirit'this song has the best riff of the 90's,Bono's lyrics are genius

52Mothers of the Disappeared

Despite being an experimental piece by U2, this song cracks my top three favorite songs ever. With its read-between-the-lines lyrics that still remain relateable, and the great riff by the Edge, this song has it all. The Edge's great guitar, Bono's trademark vocals, adam's great baseline and Larry's drums holding the song together make this a song to listen to over and over and over again.
Really a good song... should be on the first page
Really awesome song! Should be in top 10... really

Excellent song. Definitely top 20, even potentially breaking into top 10. Never played live by the band. Cannot for the life of me understand why this gem is so forgotten and underappreciated.
I have everything from U2 (incl. the CBS-singles). And this is the best song from this great band. I do not understand, why it is so underrated...
Huh? No comments for acrobat? The most underrated song of all time. This has aways been my favorite. I don't know why fans don't know about this song..

55In a Little While
Oh! So nice! Lovely voice and lyrics )
Great voice from bono

56In God's Country
What? What? WHAT? This song, the best of all of U2, is down on 81? I completely and utterly my favorite song of all time. Love the ringing, echoing guitar, the quiet but strong bass and the hopefulness of Bono's voice. Vote for this song, a true classic from the Joshua Tree.
fantastic when done live and acoustic


5711 O'Clock Tick Tock
Great lyrics. Classic Edge style guitar riff. "We thought that we had the answers, it was the question we had wrong". An early favorite.
Love, love, love this song!

Great song that is way too low on this list! Love The Edge's guitar in this song!
Very cool song. Best tune on NO LINE ON THE HORIZON.

... The only reason this isn't up on the first page is because most people have never heard it. It has some of the most emotion I've ever heard in a U2 song, about as much as their classics. "You're gravity searching for the ground, you're silence searching for a sound" is one of Bono's most powerful lyrics ever. As of the time I am writing this there is a possibility that this song will be on the follow up to No Line On the Horizon... I really hope it makes it so it will get the attention (and therefore the appreciation) that it truly deserves.

60Angel of Harlem
Not a single comment on this sweet song? Wow


61Unknown Caller
Love that guitar solo, and such a melodic beat, pure class!

Brings Good memories of nice times. Is not the common U2 song and that is another of its pros. It sounds Great and I'm sure that will be more appreciated in the future.
I like the dance music that they have done to this song and I like it when they do something new. This song also has a good beat ti this song even though don't really like this type of music.

63The Troubles
Epic ending for one of their best albums

64Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses
Not my absolute fave but can't believe how low this song is. Top 20-25 at least!
Great words and fab chorus!

65The Miracle (Of Joey Ramone)
The reason why this amazing song is so low is because it's relatively new
Listing to it as I wrought this best ever here is the real list
1 the miracle
2 in gods country
3 New Year's Day
4 Sunday Bloody Sunday
5 trip through your wires
This really deserves more than 93 guys...

66Xanax and Wine (Demo of Fast Cars)


Fast-paced, screamingly emotional song, a highlight from The Unforgettable Fire. This one really hits home; it's euphoria and agony inseparably intertwined.

Surely this is one of their best songs from the 90's.

70Original of the Species
My favourite Amazing battery rythm and such a great musical experiment indeed.
Moving, gripping, and filled with the emotion of a lasting group
This is in my top 10 favourites. Just a gorgeous song through and through.

71Fast Cars

72Love Rescue Me

73Two Hearts Beat As One
Love this song... Needs some recognition
One of their better than the best song... How ever it's xtremely underrated. Wish this song would have known to many...
If this is 81, then they have 81 great songs!

74The Electric Co.
The highlight of Boy!

75Out of Control
Their first single (track 5 on their debut album) and Edge's greatest guitar riff. Play this song right now and turn it up LOUD. This is one of U2's greatest anthems. They also played a decent rendition of this at the Slane Castle show where Bono talks about their beginnings and thanks their parents for loaning them money for their demo.


77Cedars of Lebanon
This song is so great with the broken chords and the fantastic bass. It is my favorite song on No Line on the Horizon and I can't believe it's so low on this list! It's excellent!

78California (There Is No End to Love)
Why is it not in the list? Beautiful song!

79God Part II

80Zoo Station
How can this be so low on this list
The perfect opener to a perfect album, Actung Baby


82Drowning Man
And bit repetitive, but a great acoustic guitar song.


84Raised by Wolves

What an intro to this track superb. Brings me back to summer 93 in paris
One of their less conventional ones, but one of my favorites
From my favourite album


87The Hands That Built America
"Best song ever... I just can't get enough of it... It makes me feel different, it reminds me the history of mankind and how we've evolved!

The most beautiful song, I'd say!

Just heard this for the first time and its rocking me big time.
One of my favourites!

89A Man and a Woman

90White As Snow
This is a beautifully written song that describes a soldiers last thoughts as he dies in combat. This song is a masterpiece with the Edge's plucking hauntingly melancholy notes peacefully backing up Bono's spectacular emotional performance, with a powerful instrumental piece in the middle. This has brought me to tears more than once.

91Party Girl


93This Is Where You Can Reach Me Now

94Hawkmoon 269
Probably their best song to date. Best bit is when Larry first comes in with the drums on top of the organ. Should be a Top 5 track.
Probably one of their most unknown songs. I love it.

95Love You Like Mad

96Staring at the Sun
Wait, are you all serious? Staring at the sun, 82? ! This song deserves to be on the top 20's... But it's U2, so many songs and all are awesome!
Definitely a top 10 song, best song on POP.

97When I Look at the World

98Cedarwood Road

99Do You Feel Loved
It feels better and better every time I listen to it.

100When Love Comes to Town
I am a big fan of bb king and U2 and I love the way they joined just to make this quick and enjoyable song and it is my favorite. I am born in England and I am born close to Bono and his mates
I'm in shock by how low this is. Obviously it isn't their best, but at least in the top 20. people need to get this higher!
Great, bluesy rock song, full of powerful song writing, rhythm and guitar. BB King's voice is icing on the cake.
