Best U2 Songs

The Contenders: Page 3

41 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...

One of the edges best guitar riffs of all time on the most underrated u2 album of all time come on people

Such a fantastic riff, love the guitar effects! - Deerhunter1984

43 Desire

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 - mneilan

How is overplayed With Or Without You #1 and this isn't even in the top 10. - hype

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.

i think this is problably th best song of u2 is just simply peacefully..

such a beautiful song. only discovered it recently

47 Invisible

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

This song really needs to be higher up on this list.

Really awesome song! Should be in top 10... really

48 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.

49 The Miracle (Of Joey Ramone)

The reason why this amazing song is so low is because it's relatively new

This really deserves more than 93 guys...

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

Dear internet,
The miracle (of joey Ramone) is something that I can just get behind. With the guitar rifts and the relatable lyrics, I just can't not like this song. I just wish that this would get a little more attention.

Great lyrics. Classic Edge style guitar riff. "We thought that we had the answers, it was the question we had wrong". An early favorite.

51 The Troubles

Epic ending for one of their best albums

52 The Three Sunrises
53 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

54 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.

55 Love 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.

Easily one of U2's best, darkest, emotional and captivating songs. Should be in the top 10. This song doesn't get recognized very often, even though critics loved this song. It builds up to its peak slowly, and gives the listener tension while he/she waits... great song - Jiorl

Probably my favourite U2 song, and definitely one of the best u2 songs - Jiorl

You can say I'm a die-hard u2 fan, and this is for me without doubt U2's best song. Just take the time and listen it over and over. You will be blined by the ordinary beauty of this song.

56 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!

57 Wire

Not the best but would probably edge into my top ten

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

58 Numb

Just heard this for the first time and its rocking me big time.

One of U2 most experimental songs. Stands out from the crowd!

This blew me away when I first heart it. So unique.

One of my favourites!

59 Who'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!
