Best U2 Songs
The Contenders: Page 6
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.
It feels better and better every time I listen to it.
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.V 4 Comments
Frigging love this song. So beautiful and underrated.
And bit repetitive, but a great acoustic guitar song.
Probably their best song to date. Best bit is when Larry first comes in with the drums on top of the organ. Should be a Top 5 track.
Probably one of their most unknown songs. I love it.
I am a big fan of bb king and U2 and I love the way they joined just to make this quick and enjoyable song and it is my favorite. I am born in England and I am born close to Bono and his mates
I'm in shock by how low this is. Obviously it isn't their best, but at least in the top 20. people need to get this higher!
Great, bluesy rock song, full of powerful song writing, rhythm and guitar. BB King's voice is icing on the cake.
Unarticulated lyrics, no "proper" song form, a magic spontaneous moment captured forever. This song reminds me of my teenage years, high-school friends, uncertainty about what I will become, my most romantic side, my fears, the first cold winds when seasons change, the first ladies who became unforgivable loved ones and others lost somewhere on the road. I can listen to this magical piece of music over and over and feel almost protected from anything that's evil.
While I do not think that this is their best song, I am amazed at how much people overlook this song as one of U2's finest. This song was almost entirely a spur of the moment creation, and feels very emotional, rough and jagged at times, and Bono's swooping vocals and Larry mullen's repetitive, raw drumming are highlights in this undiscovered gem - Jiorl
Such a sad song with such a powerful message.
How can this be so low?
For me this song is really amazing (one of the best of Adam Clayton). Should be in the TOP20.V 1 Comment
One of my all time favourite U2 songs, totally forgotten. Such a classic U2 sound, hard to believe it was only played 9 times by the band live.
Should be at the top man
This is a treasure on boy.
I'm surprised this song isn't included in here. A beautiful ballad by bono.
This is a beautifully written song that describes a soldiers last thoughts as he dies in combat. This song is a masterpiece with the Edge's plucking hauntingly melancholy notes peacefully backing up Bono's spectacular emotional performance, with a powerful instrumental piece in the middle. This has brought me to tears more than once.
76? Come on guys! This has to be one of the best songs ever by U2. It deserves to be higher up.
Way to low in rankings. One of my favorites, next to promenade, that didn't make it main stream
