Now the game is afoot !!!   I'm racking my brain as the nominees are fighting to make the cut. 

1.  Mofo - No doubt on this one. The album cut did not impress on first listen but is an absolute monster live.

2. Please - great crescendo in music and songcraft

3. Do You Feel Loved - Just a dirty ditty.  Never leaves your mind. Never duplicated. Shame they didn't master a muscular live version.

This should be a good poll.  Velvet Dress is underrated.

Mofo
Gone
Please.  Please only gets in due to the live version.  Without that to go by, I may have picked Do You Feel Loved instead.

IGWSHA
Gone
Please

Really like IGWSHA, otherwise not a lot of my faves on this album.  Only when I looked at the list did i even remember SATS existed.

The first three kick it off hard like nothing else in U2's catalog.

Discotheque, Do You Feel Loved, Mofo.  Vastly under-rated album (in my top 5) but could have been much better if they'd stuck with the upbeat feel of these first three tracks.

I love this album to bits, honestly I don't think you understand.  This was stressful and what a way to start the weekend, anyway, I picked Mofo, Gone, and Please.  But any track, anytime, anyplace would suffice, simply put, this album rules.
