Just want to chime in that I think these kind of polls are one of my favorite things about this forum, even the random ones.  My favorite was the one someone did a year or so ago where people ranked songs from each album -- an album a week.

I usually just vote and not list my choices, but since I'm already typing I picked "The Fly," "Bad," "Bullet the Blue Sky," and "Ultraviolet," though it pained me to leave out "Please and Stay," for that matter.

Whilst people of course can choose to vote and not comment and that is of course their right, I do feel these polls can be a great driver for discussion....so it is always good to see people 'chime in' when voting and i personally would encourage people to do so!

Can be interesting to get perspective on choices and reasons behind them as well as some banter about how the poll is progressing....
Yes...and I think the poll would be progressing much better if Ultraviolet was winning :)

You're lucky the footage is censored in the USA.  Here's an edited version for more sensitive American eyes: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

All of the songs offered are the best of the best U2 songs.  That was the hardest pick yet.

I chose Bad, With or Without You, The Fly, and Ultra Violet (Light My Way).

Bad is so timeless.  With or Without You is special to me because it was the first song my dad (who has passed on) played for me and led me to fandom.  The Fly is amazing.  I remember waiting for Achtung Baby and seeing this brilliant video and the "new" U2 sound of 4 men chopping down The Joshua Tree.  My 14 year old ears at the time were in awe, and still are.  Ultra Violet still lights my way too.

Stay (Faraway So Close), Bullet The Blue Sky, Love is Blindness, and Please are amazing classics.  So hard not to vote for them as well.  All of these songs have been the soundtrack to most of my life.
