Not really up on their latest music.  Just life got in the way and living way out bush with only limited satellite internet connections.  When I discovered Kite recently I loved it.  I did like Beautiful day and Magnificent.

I'm sure this will change if you asked me next week, but right now my top 10 would be

1. Beautiful Day
2. Love is Bigger than Anything in it's Way
3. Unknown Caller (probably not a popular choice)
4. Vertigo
5. Magnificent
6. Lights of Home
7. Raised by Wolves
8. Kite (especially the live version....Slane Castle?)
9. City of Blinding Lights
10. American Soul

Just missed the cut:
Electrical Storm
Invisible
Window in the Skies
Walk On

I'm not seeing a lot of 'Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own' in fans' lists.  In my opinion, that song is one of the best things that U2 has ever done.  Top 15 all-time, for me.

You're right!  I probably should have it in my top 10 for 21st century.  I definitely looked forward to that performance on the Vertigo tour.  In Philly, on outside rail, Bono was right in front of me at the climax of that song....to see him absorbed in the song and the emotional state he gets in to sing the song was something to see.

The Showman gives you front row to his heart....

Great song indeed - not so keen on the Showman but performances like you reference merit the lyrical aspects of The Showman. As an aside Im rubbish at lists  8)

I was considering it for my top 10, it's a great song, but I don't find myself listening to it as much as others.
