You expected it to make the list?

There's, like, three closeted people who like it. (I'm one)

Here are mine. Interesting that only 1 of my top 10 was actually a single, only 2 were regulars on any setlist, and 3 weren't even featured on the standard edition of any album. My taste in U2's music couldn't be more different than U2's.
Listen as Hope and Peace try to rhyme,
Listen over marching bands playing out their time.

It's a good song...I like it a lot. But, I'm not sure that it's list-worthy.

I'm surprised Book Of Your Heart is leading right now. I love it but I'd have thought MOS or Kite would lead.

In the grand scheme of things (2000s u2) i think it is,  however if we were talking about all time u2 - none of these choices would get my vote

Some of these would get my vote, but California, much as I like it, wouldn't make any top ten list of mine other than "top ten songs on SOi."
