Picking from the 9 original songs.  Of course I'd go Freedom for My People #1 overall otherwise.

1.AIWIY
2. God Part II.         

(Both tracks in my personal top ten)

3. Desire (awesome track that even non-U2 fans love)

AIWIY is easy.  The others are harder.  I went with Heartland and Angel of Harlem.

I wanted to pick four: Desire, Hawkmoon 269, Angel of Harlem, and All I Want Is You. In the end, Angel of Harlem had to get bumped.

  • Can't fight for s---, but sure can take a beating
AIWIY- easily in my top 3 for the band across their entire catalogue
Heartland- song has grown on me over the years and i now listen to it a few times in a row when listening to the album
Love Rescue Me- I know a lot of people rag on this one, but i've always enjoyed it going back to my first listen of R&H.  Would love to hear the original version with Dylan doing more than mumbling that was intended to be released on the album.

  • Feel like trash...you make me feel clean
This one's tough.  I actually really love the original songs on this album.  I went with:

1) Heartland
2) Desire
3) Angel of Harlem

But, see I had All I Want is You played over the PA in the temple at the conclusion of my wedding ceremony (my wife loved it!).  I also really love HM269 and VDL, and I think When Love Comes to Town is great.

I just bought an original vinyl pressing of this at my local record store.  I would like to get the gatefold signed by the band when they come to KC in  Sept (long shot, I know).

In order:

All I Want Is You
Heartland
Angel of Harlem  ...I like Desire more, but AoH's the better song.

Can't do this one.  They're all great songs.

Angel of Harlem is the best by FAR in my opinion. All I Want is You is good but a bit overrated. Desire is a great production.

"Hawkmoon", "Heartland", and "All I Want is You".

For all the flak this album/era receives, there are some pretty great songs on it.  I chose Hawkmoon 269, Angel of Harlem and All I Want Is You, but quite like the other original studio tracks too.
