Best - One

Worst - GOYB

It's hard to believe the band wrote both of these songs.

I have to remember to separate my favorite from what really is the best, so...

Best: One

Worst: Van Diemen's Land

Anybody care to take a stab?  Only pick one. By best/worst I mean overtime (years) by the likes of "wow" or "what the hell".

Best: Where the Streets Have No name
Worst: A Man and Woman

I love A Man and a Woman. I love when Bono sings believing in his Latin side.

Best - Until the End of the World (there's a lot that could be #1 though... and that's saying something)

Worst - Not sure... maybe something off October or TUF? Would have to go back and take a listen...

Best:  One   or   Running To Stand Still (especially the ZooTV version)    or   Stay

Worst:   Unknown Caller.  And this is not one of those "Oh, its a good song.  Its just not up to u2's usual standard".  No.  Unknown Caller is putrid stench.  And, BTW, the "U2 standard" is pretty low these days.

Same here! Glad to see other people loving that song too. I almost put AMAAW as the most underrated, but not too many seem to talk about 'In A Little While' and I do like that song better, so...

hey AM, good to know I'm not alone in my preference for AMAAW! It's one of my fav U2 ballads, and in my humble opinion it's much more romantic than With or Without you, for example

I love AMAAW. And In A Little While. They are both definitely more romantic than With or Without You. WOWY is about tortured love and AMAAW and IALW are about a more secure relationship, about helping each other.
