I went with The Little Things...but remember, I'm the wishy-washy one...my vote could probably change within the hour.

I went with The Little Things too. I feel, of all the songs we have heard so far, i feel it is the least throw away pop song

The Blackout by a mile. TLT would be great if Bono weren't singing 3 keys higher than his voice wants him to.
Listen as Hope and Peace try to rhyme,
Listen over marching bands playing out their time.

Where can "get Out of Your Own Way" be heard? I wouldn't want to vote without a fair listen to all!

I'm enjoying "The Blackout" best, as it has that nice U2 swagger  8)

Last I checked, you can google U2 Get Out Of Your Own Way. There should be a YT link.

Summer of love- techno rock with lady Gaga backup vocals. "I'm on the west coast not the one that you know"

Is GOOYOW released?  I haven't heard it yet, but i will say that the title sounds like one that a high school political punk scream-o band would have.

The Best Thing.

The Blackout has the right idea, but succumbs to post-Vertigo punkrockitis, meaning it sweats it, and stretches way past the doormat. It's The Miracle pt. II, thinking one good riff is enough to fill out four minutes or more.

TLT may be great in its final form, but I'm underwhelmed by the verses in a rock band performance. The U2 by numbers crescendo is enjoyable as is, but I don't want them to reheat old stuff. Winter was more interesting.

GOOYOW, given I have only heard the chorus and some lines of the bridge, is just Beautiful Day retooled for a new generation, with more interesting lyrics. I'm not a fan of BD, so I'll have to wait and hear where it strays from the formula.

I could imagine SOE being a last hurrah effort, like REM's Collapse Into Now, given the clear distinction between these four very accessible, single type songs, all representing a different facet of U2-dom, bearing U2-isms on their sleeves. If my hunch ends up being true, it might just work. The lyrics are not terrible at least.

Most definitely The Blackout. I hope there are more songs like it on SOE.
