Best U2 Songs

The Contenders: Page 7

121 Iris (Hold Me Close) Iris (Hold Me Close)

This song should be in the top 25! Seriously guys, this is my favorite fom Songs of Innocence because it is the epitome of the album name. Its about Bono's mother and growing up and emotions. It's just great. And it has a beachy sound to it too. It doesn't sound outdated.

122 An Cat Dubh An Cat Dubh
123 Yahweh Yahweh
124 I Threw a Brick Through a Window
125 Holy Joe

B-side of the Discotheque single, in a garage mix and a guilty mix. Both versions are great. Holy Joe is a cheerful track, and should have been on the Pop album to make that album more fun.

126 40 (How Long)

Way to low in rankings. One of my favorites, next to promenade, that didn't make it main stream

127 MLK MLK

Bono sings a beautiful lullabye over the top of some ambient keyboards from Brian Eno. The perfect closer to my favourite U2 album.

How can this piece of music be down this low?
I love this piece of music from the Unforgetable Fire album.

128 Unchained Melody
129 Sleep Like a Baby Tonight Sleep Like a Baby Tonight

I think that this song is a hidden gem in U2's song catalog, and is arguably the best song on their songs of innocence album. Bono revisits his falsetto voice from lemon (for a brief period). Another great song by U2. - Jiorl

131 The Ground Beneath Her Feet

I'm surprised this song isn't included in here. A beautiful ballad by bono.

132 I Fall Down
133 The Refugee The Refugee
134 Red Light Red Light
135 No Line of the Horizon 2
136 Always

I like this song because U2 did a different kind of music on this song and it is on the single Beautiful Day.

137 Stand Up Comedy Stand Up Comedy
138 Satellite of Love Satellite of Love
139 Blow Your House Down Blow Your House Down

Absolutely terrific "pump up" rock n roll song which was first developed during the Achting Baby early 90s sessions but was later released in 2011... The definition of taking your time with a masterpeice. Perfect song in my honest opinion.

140 A Day Without Me A Day Without Me

Rousing tune from "Boy"
