Some decent choices to be fair. But why the hell is IWF at number 2. And donít get me started on Pride.

Some interesting choices. However, I find that it undermines its credibility when I Will Follow is ranked as the second best U2 songs and Vertigo is even on the list. No Streets is just contrarian.

Yeah. Thatís a unconventional list. TUF in 1st, Discotheque and Numb in the Top 10, no BD in sight.... you donít see that very often.

Yeah but where the HELL are Things to Make and Do, Bottoms (Watasitachi No Ookina Yume), and the alarm sound at the end of Zooropa?
Listen as Hope and Peace try to rhyme,
Listen over marching bands playing out their time.

They need to get their facts straight. UTEOTW isnít the last song on AB. The vastly superior Love is Blindness is.

Iím guessing UTEOTW was the final song written/recorded for AB, not the last on the tracklist.

The writer knows their stuff.

I think it came earlier in the process as it was written for the Wim Wenders film.

ĎThe ghosts of Berlin Bowie and Talking Heads loom over this tortured chugger, the final song from U2ís finest album, Achtung Babyí

No ambiguity here.

Was there ever a remix of the alarm sound?  ;)

Well idk then. A weird and basic fact to get wrong for someone who could, say, discuss the production of 11 OíClock.

Interesting for both its omissions and inclusions (even if only for a couple of counts each).  Numero Uno actually makes for a nice surprise.

TUF and Discotheque are both in my personal top 10, but yeah, TUF's not #1. Interesting list, I'll give them that.

Why isnít LIB in the top 3. Thatís what I want to know.
