U2's post 2000 output is very contentious among us fans, but how many of these songs are in your top 10 favorite U2 songs?

I threw together a top 10 list (although it really changes all the time). I had 3:

1. Stay (Faraway, So Close!)
2. Winter
3. Lemon
4. Bad
5. Running to Stand Still
6. Love is Blindness
7. One
8. Moment of Surrender
9. God Part II
10. Kite

One of my favs too, but not good enough to crack a top 10 list.

Just one: Miracle Drug. I have a couple others in my top 25. I like their recent output more than most but the 80's and 90's are tough to live up to.

Zip. Not a knock on the band, their past catalog is just way too strong.
Listen as Hope and Peace try to rhyme,
Listen over marching bands playing out their time.

Kite and in a little while definitely. MOS and STYCMIOYO maybe. Landlady, little things and GOOYOW only possibles from SOE but I reckon they will fall short when the dust settles. Iíll go for 3.
