Favorite U2 song vs Best U2 song
« on: October 20, 2017, 09:29:11 PM »
What I personally like best is not necessarily what I think is U2ís best song. For instance my favorite U2 song is Ultraviolet but I think that the best song that theyíve ever recorded is One. Is your favorite U2 song also their best? Hope that makes sense.

Even Better than the Real Thing vs Pride

Ebttrt is them at their absolute coolest.

The riff in Pride is pure magic.  The finest earnest Rock n Roll anthem ever written.  A song about Martyrs in the middle of a decade of decadence and materialism.

My fav would be Streets...

The best...that's a tough one, but probably either UTEOTW or The Fly.

Favorite: A Sort of Homecoming

Best: With or Without You


I think there are a number of songs that could qualify as their "best", but WOWY just seems like the perfect balance of everything they do best. One, Please, Streets, and Pride could all fit into that category as well.

Favorite: The Unforgettable Fire
Best: Tough one. I'm thinking an iconic song like Pride, maybe SBS a close second.

My favorite is "With or Without You".  I'd say it's probably also their best since it is so iconic and showcases all their signature elements.
