Best U2 Songs
The Contenders: Page 4XW
Just heard this for the first time and its rocking me big time.
One of U2 most experimental songs. Stands out from the crowd!V1 Comment
I am so shocked that this song is not in the top ten! This is the best song by u2 ever! The lyrics, bono's voice are so good! Bono just sings it with so much feel and it evokes such sadness inside our heart whenever we hear this song! This deserves to be the best song by u2
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.V1 Comment
Why is it not in the list? Beautiful song!
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!
Easily one of U2's best songs. Should be higher, however POP never got the recognition that it did deserve - Jiorl
This is my favorite song of this band... How can it not be popular..
Oh! So nice! Lovely voice and lyrics )V1 Comment
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.

Can't get this song outta my head. So haunting, and the video is a work of art as well
If I owned this song on a vinyl record it would be worn out.V2 Comments
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.
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.
One of their better than the best song... How ever it's xtremely underrated. Wish this song would have known to many...V2 Comments
Definitely not the best song by them, but it really does deserve a better spot. It was for New Orleans ffs - abhishekguptaV1 Comment
Great song that is way too low on this list! Love The Edge's guitar in this song!V1 Comment
... 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.
How can this be 79? It's easily one of their top 3, and one of the top 20 songs of all time, by anyone
