Ah, jeez. How can you pick one?
UF is probably the better song.
Stay is amazing live.
UF is amazing live.
Stay is personal for me, so therefore the better song.
I'm so confused. I can't pick.

I will go with TUF but it's totally a flip of the coin.  Ask me tomorrow and i would probably give a different answer.  Both are incredible songs.

I would love to Stay,  but even all of my teeth are no match for The Unforgivable Fire

I finally went with Stay, after much deliberation. Deliberation? Wow, that's a big word for me.

Newbie here, so be gentle ...  :)

I'll have to go with Unforgettable Fire because of Edge's atmospherics. And the rhythm ... in general, I prefer faster paced songs to slow ones.

However, to be fair, Zooropa's always been my least favorite album (not that I actively dislike it, I just don't like it near as much as some others), so I haven't really listened to it as much. But lately Stay's been growing on me ... due to some of the live performances I've managed to find. It really builds, doesn't it? Shattering ending.
Are you tough enough to be kind?

Since youre new, well give you some latitude. But be very careful bashing Zooropa... :P

Eeeep! First post and I've transgressed already! I'd beg forgiveness, but heck, it's more fun to argue.... :D
