83 The Electric Co.

The highlight of Boy!

84 Cedars 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!

85 Staring 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.

86 Gone

One of the band's greatest songs in my opinion. Lost on an album the band didn't ultimately believe in, unfortunately. The album was too rushed at the end for their liking, but this song is so other-worldly, ethereal, and just damned good. I've listened to it before so many major life events to psych me up and it never fails. If you haven't listened and consider yourself a U2 fan, take 5 minutes - you won't regret it. I especially prefer the live version on their greatest hits album.

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

Top 10 for sure!

87 Xanax and Wine (Demo of Fast Cars)
88 Smile
89 Trip Through Your Wires

This song isn't even mentioned...such a great song...!

This song deserves to be higher than 93.

91 Twilight

This song should be considered if ONLY for the coolest-sounding guitar solo in the world!

92 Rejoice

After Gloria best song on October album

93 A Man and a Woman
94 Zooropa

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

Best song on Zooropa

95 Zoo Station

How can this be so low on this list

This song kicks ass. Should be WAY higher.

The perfect opener to a perfect album, Actung Baby

96 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.

97 The Hands That Built America

People! You're undervaluing this excellent work. Gangs of New York (the movie it was written for) only received a 75% rating on the famous vegetable movie review site, which may be part of why the song didn't get more air time. Bono's soaring solo toward the end reaches the skies and the interwoven melodies and harmonies make you want to play this on repeat.

"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!

"From the stony fields to hanging steel from sky" --- what an evocative line

The Orchestral Version should be the first of U2

98 Do You Feel Loved

It feels better and better every time I listen to it.

99 A Sort of Homecoming

This is the quintessential U2 song. Better than anything on the Joshua Tree Album. This is how U2 sounded when they were still great. U2 should listen to The Unforgettable Fire Album more often...

This is and will ever be the greatest U2 song. Forget about all the stuff on the terrible Joshua Tree. The Unforgettable Fire and all songs on it will always be the quintessential U2 album.

Great Song if you are long away from home! My all time Favorite...

Perfect opener.

Frigging love this song. So beautiful and underrated.

And bit repetitive, but a great acoustic guitar song.
