Best U2 Songs

The Contenders: Page 7

121 I Threw a Brick Through a Window
122 Holy Joe

B-side of the Discotheque single, in a garage mix and a guilty mix. Both versions are great. Holy Joe is a cheerful track, and should have been on the Pop album to make that album more fun.

123 MLK

Bono sings a beautiful lullabye over the top of some ambient keyboards from Brian Eno. The perfect closer to my favourite U2 album.

How can this piece of music be down this low?
I love this piece of music from the Unforgetable Fire album.

124 Wild Honey

I wonder how far down the list I can go and still find greatness?

125 Sleep Like a Baby Tonight

I think that this song is a hidden gem in U2's song catalog, and is arguably the best song on their songs of innocence album. Bono revisits his falsetto voice from lemon (for a brief period). Another great song by U2. - Jiorl

129 Trash, Trampoline and the Party Girl
130 Until the End of the World

The lyrics for the song... fabulous, beautiful. And it's dark in such a crazy way. Every instrument is beautifully played.

Love the jungle opening until the Edge moves in and takes over the song. Fantastic layering and production.

forget 'smells like teen spirit'this song has the best riff of the 90's,Bono's lyrics are genius

This is THE BEST SONG of U2

131 Miss Sarajevo

This is Bono's favourite song! How can it be so low! The melody in the song is pretty awesome! Definitely one of the greatest rock songs I have ever heard

This song is amazing, Pavarotti's voice is heavenly I know the competition is fears and there so so many songs to chose from but this one should at least be in the top 20

132 Original of the Species

My favourite Amazing battery rythm and such a great musical experiment indeed.

Moving, gripping, and filled with the emotion of a lasting group

So under rated and under appreciated. Great sound and touching lyrics.

Love this at top volume on car stereo

133 In a Little While

Oh! So nice! Lovely voice and lyrics )

Great voice from bono

Bono's most emotional performance that makes me cry

134 Helter Skelter

First heard watching the rattle and hum movie.
So good!

135 Get on Your Boots

Defines the late 2000s mainstream rock feel.

136 The Saints are Coming

It's awesome to here. Green Day and u2 always stays the legend.

Definitely not the best song by them, but it really does deserve a better spot. It was for New Orleans ffs - abhishekgupta

137 Love You Like Mad
138 Electrical Storm

Can't get this song outta my head. So haunting, and the video is a work of art as well

If I owned this song on a vinyl record it would be worn out.



139 I Fall Down
140 The Refugee
