I settled on Miami, as it spawned one of their greatest live songs. I could have chosen 4 or 5 others, but I've always had a soft spot for Miami.

Voted for Gone, but this was really a tough one. Mofo, Disco, Do You Feel Loved, Last Night on Earth...all spectacular songs. If I was going to be girly today, I would choose Velvet Dress. What a sexy, wonderful song.

I went Mofo in the end - it sits right up there in my top 3/5 all time u2 songs.....still wish they had gone with the direction of that 'hong kong mix' though.

Picked Mofo, but I was tempted by Do You Feel Loved.

I can't say enough great things about Gone. It's a monster of a rock song and one that never should have been dropped from their live rotation. Then again, I can say that for pretty much every song on the album.

Agree...that's why it got my vote...there's nothing bad about this song. It is primo rock and roll.

It is for me pretty much the last time u2 managed to do flat out 'rawk' and it not come off clumsy/uncool.

No rawk is just a joke expression a play on the american and i believe the metal fans way of saying rock....Well that is my interpretation of it anyway....could be wrong.
