Exit, far and away. Running to Stand Still takes the runner-up spot.

Voted Red Hill just to give it some love, but put a gun to my head and it's gotta be With or Without You. An all time great song. Right behind it are Running to Stand Still, I Still Haven't Found, and Red Hill Mining Town.
Definitive U2 Top 10: 1. One, 2. Bad, 3. With Or Without You, 4. Running to Stand Still, 5. So Cruel, 6. Ultraviolet, 7. I Still Havenít Found What Iím Looking For, 8. Hawkmoon 269, 9. Red Hill Mining Town, 10. Luminous Times

Trip Through Your Wires. Always loved it, and it was a highlight for me on the recent tour.

For the majority of the last 30 yrs, not only was OTH my fave u2 song from TJT album, but it was also my all time fave u2 song. But this year, it has been knocked from both perches.
Due to its awsomeness live, Exit has overtaken OTH as my fave track from TJT album. (For those that are interested, OTH has been replaced as my all time fave u2 song, by UTEOTW)

Streets, I guess. The only thing I can really decide is that it's not Trip Through Your WIres.

RTSS. It's so subtle and haunting, and I have loved it on every tour they've played it on (even Vertigo).


PS - Look how positive I can be!
Listen as Hope and Peace try to rhyme,
Listen over marching bands playing out their time.

Careful Exile, you will slowly ruin your reputation if you keep going down that road  ;D ;D

I also love RTSS, and Exit. But TTYW is my favorite.

RTSS the zoo tv arrangement is boss.

I also found TTYW a surprise highlight at the recent TJT show.

Can't say it is a song I ever cared for but it really was 'reborn' on this last tour.

Acrobat................Unfortunately I have to go to this place 5 days a week for about 9 hours a day - at the end of a month they pay some money into my bank account which my wife and child then spend..........I haven't worked out at all yet what this place expect from me, but there is a table for me to sit at and a computer....

Hey, positivity is great. For example, U2 is really good at writing shite pop songs. See? Positivity!
