I think it has to be Two Hearts Beat as One.  Bono wrote it for Ali on their honeymoon, can't get anymore romantic than that!

Like Missey I would go for Two Hearts. The title is enough! :)

Jokes aside, let's be honest... When you go as far as comparing your love interest to a mole, it's an undeniable connection to the deepest level that's transcending love itself.

Especially when it is digging up your soul.

And me, first dance song. My wife isn't a massive U2 fan but she obviously knows how much they mean to me as she suggested using One as a first dance song, I thought All I Want Is You would be a better choice and it was perfect.

I think Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses deserves a mention.

It's a dark, heart-wrenching song about an impossible and dangerous love. For me it features some of the most heartfelt lyrics ever written by Bono.

Rumours say it was written about a band member (it is unknown who, but it was one of the "married" ones) who had an intense "affair", but the relationship was ended because it posed a threat to his marriage.
I've never heard that before.  Where did you hear these rumours? 

This Rolling Stone article specifically says that the song is about an affair, and I do remember reading that Larry said it was about an affair a band member had, although it was a while ago.

I remember this story/rumour about Wild Horses too. (minus the "married" part)

I think Bono mentioned that the song is about domestic abuse, but whatever floats your boat...
