Best U2 Songs
The Contenders: Page 5
... 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.
The highlight of Boy!

It's a catchy song that deserves to be on the list
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!
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!
This song isn't even mentioned...such a great song...!
This song deserves to be higher than 93.V 1 Comment
This song should be considered if ONLY for the coolest-sounding guitar solo in the world!
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

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
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
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.
