Best: One

Worst: Miami, I guess although I like pretty much everything.

Favorite:  Bad.  I'm a fan because of this song.

answer to Stanley considering When I Look at...:

It's the worst, coz it's got mediocre-cringey lyrics, overblown and pompous, but not exhilerating instrumentation, and feels like a bad Simple Minds song, from the '90s which even a semi-Achtung Baby sound, that's killed by a syrupy and muddled production, cannot save from being utter filler...
Also, the vocals are of the annoying sort.

That's my opinion on the song. I think the album has several better songs, excluding Stuck in a Moment and Grace.

Best: Streets
Worst: Elevation (album version)

Absolutely agree here with both choices, my only difference is that any version, and I mean even when I've heard it live, any version of Elevation grates on my cheese. And any version of Streets is brilliant!!!

Your fav songs depend on the mood,what you're gonna do...for example 'One' is a U2 classic..yet if you are wanting to get pumped for a night out it may not be the right song...may be then Pride/Nyrs Day/ dare I say Vertigo(cmon its a pumpin song)..or maybe Ultraviolet..or Streets..or the lovely Magnificent
..next day when you're hungover all self loathing and want a song to feel sorry for you..maybe One/With or without u/Stay/Running to a standstill/Drowning man...

Lets face a bad song is always a bad song..for goodness sake who are those women singing on the start of Red Light..holly molly..and what were they thinking when they wrote Wild Honey..lets not forget the shocking covers..everlasting love..eeeeek...Bono singing Unchained Melody while the rest of em have pi**ed off to the pub.......Still akin to making a cup fo tea in the ad breaks..these songs serve their purpose for beer and loo breaks at the concerts..if they ever dare to play them

Well, I'm glad that we partially agree. But I think Elevation live is great. It's a corny but fun song, you know?

Worst song?

A long time ago I would have said "The Refugee" but even now it has a bit of a dated charm to it.

I'd say All Because of You. I can't even believe it was a single, it's so cringeworthy! Bleh!!!! Painful to listen to!

Best song? There are so many I can't list one. Bad or Ultraviolet are my 2 favourites, but whether they're the best is difficult to say.

Worst: Bullet The Blue Sky

Even when played live? For me, that's its redeeming feature.

What does everyone have against Bono singing Unchained Melody?  Makes my heart throb....
