Best U2 Songs

The Contenders: Page 3

41 Bullet the Blue Sky

Why in the world is this amazing song in #37!? The drums, bass, and Bono's voice telling a story about coming to America is one that will stand the test of time for those who are wishing to journey to America to seek a better life. The sounds and setting for this song makes it my best and most favorite U2 song (followed by Mysterious Ways and I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For)

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. - mgenet

Man this song is the BEST OF OF U2, I don't understand why it is not at the top of the list

NO WAY NOT #39 THIS IS LIKE #3 THE BASS LINE IS SO DEEP, THE SLIDE GUITAR IS SWAG, AND OF COURSE, BONO'S STORY.

42 Please

Not necessarily the best song, But one of the most powerful and important. Bono's views on the tragedies in Northern Ireland change my views & many others. This song was their capstone on the peace process. It was such a stupid and futile fight, I am glad it is over... Almost. - Peatvon

43 Love Comes Tumbling

Three Sunrises and this - top ten for me.

44 Every 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 love this song, sometimes I feel like crying, it's an epic song deserves top 10

The best recent u2 song.

46 Stay (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!

I slept last night with headphones on and woke up at 2 am with this song playing and I swear tears came out of my eyes and I'm a guy so you better believe this song deserves and should be in the top5

Poetry made music: really melancoclic, it gets me to my love stories and rememberings. Really moving...

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...!

Why is this song at this number...should be at higher

Best song and feel, I think too underrated

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.

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...

"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.

such a beautiful song. only discovered it recently

50 New York

This so is from the album all that you can leave behind.

51 So 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.

52 11 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.

53 Sometimes 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.

Awesome lyrics and one of the best songs... must be higher in the list

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

Their most beautiful song by far in my opinion

54 When I Look at the World
55 In 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.

Deserves to be top ten. Still haven't found what I'm looking for is my favourite though

fantastic when done live and acoustic - englishradio

56 Song for Someone

Every time I listen to this song I start crying... It's amazing, definitely one of their best songs!

Why are all of the 'Songs of Innocence' songs so low? They're AMAZING!

This song is incredible

Best song on the new album, no question.

57 In a Little While

Oh! So nice! Lovely voice and lyrics )

Great voice from bono

Bono's most emotional performance that makes me cry

58 Window 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 ...more

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!

FIRST TIME I'VE SEEN THIS ON A BEST OF LIST!

59 Out 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.
