Sleep Like a Baby Tonight
City of Blinding Lights
Kite
Winter
The Ground Beneath Her Feet

6/50.

the ground beneath her feet*

electrical storm*
sometimes you can't make it on your own

the blackout*
the little things that give you away

...well, there's like 22 of 'em or something. If I were to take the trouble to actually come up with my top 50, obviously not all of them would end up on it Gotta tell y'all, tho - no way that at least 15 of 'em don't make the list. Asterisks denote absolute, for-certain dead ringers.

I'd have to really list out my top 50 and that's just something I'm not inclined to do.  However, I could come up with a few very possibles:

Cedars
Kite
SYCMIOYO
COBL
Every Breaking Wave
My U2 Top 10: The Unforgettable Fire, Acrobat, New Year's Day, Gloria, The Fly, A Sort of Homecoming, Where The Streets Have No Name, Bad, Ultra Violet (Light My Way), Drowning Man

Yeah, I feel the same way. To be able to answer this question I'd need to actually take the time and make the list (which is way too hard). I'm sure it'd include these at the very least:

TGBHF
Crystal Ballroom
The Troubles
Being Born
Stateless

... and perhaps a few more. But then, I literally never shuffle between U2 eras but instead tend to judge their songs only against others from within the same period. My hope is that SOE will give me a handful of tracks that crack my top 20 post-Pop U2 songs. So far it's not looking good.

Listen as Hope and Peace try to rhyme,
Listen over marching bands playing out their time.
