Zooropa Ranked
« on: July 14, 2020, 05:51:16 PM »
I couldn't find a Zooropa ranking thread using the search function, so here we are. Rank Zooropa's tracks from best to worst. You know the drill.

1. Zooropa
2. Lemon
3. Daddy's Gonna Pay For Your Crashed Car
4. Dirty Day
5. Numb
6. Stay (Faraway, So Close!)
7. The Wanderer
8. Babyface
9. The First Time
10. Some Days Are Better Than Others

This was much more difficult than ranking Achtung Baby or Pop. There isn't a bad song on this album, and the tracks of each tier only deviate in quality by the slightest of degrees, which made separating Daddy's Gonna Pay and Dirty Day quite a challenge.

Would also have 'Some Days' & 'The First Time' in the bottom two.

Even Edge said he was surprised 'The First Time' got onto the 90-2000 CD.

It's a well-written lyric, but the song is a plodder. And Larry's toms thundering in the distance remind me of One Tree Hill theatrics.

Dirty Day
The First Time
Stay
Lemon
Numb
Some Days Are Better Than Others
The Wanderer
Babyface

Like Pop and AB, my least favorite song (in this case Babyface) obliterates anything U2 has written or released since. Its a superb song....and like the other two 90's albums mentioned.....ranking is mostly done on 'favorites' and not best.

What are we going to do now it's all been said.
No new ideas in the house and every book has been read.

I just looked at how I ranked the songs, and I already want to change it all around! It's too hard to say that one is better than another...or that one is the worst or best.

90's u2 is nearly infallible

even when they think they did wrong, they were actually brilliant
