Just curious really, no offense meant.  You mentioned in a previous thread that Mercy and Winter are the two best U2 songs ever.  Then, how come they don't hold the first and second place(s) on your list?

I said they were two of the best, not the two best.

What are your top 20 U2 songs ranked?

This was incredibly difficult. What surprised me was the number of the big hits in my list. So many album tracks I love, but when it comes to the cull, a lot of the big hitters had to stay.

1. Bad
2. Ultraviolet (Light My Way)
3. All I Want Is You
4. New Years Day
5. With Or Without You
6. Love Is Blindness
7. One
8. I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For
9. Pride
10. Zoo Station
11. Where The Streets Have No Name
12. Your Blue Room
13. Stay (Faraway, So Close)
14. A Sort Of Homecoming
15. Numb
16. The Little Things That Give You Away
17. Electric Co.
18. Gone
19. Kite
20. Running To Stand Still

There is a reason hits become hits.  They’re usually the best songs.

Very interesting list. I never thought I would ever see Miami in anyone's U2 top 20 list. I love Xanax and Wine. MOFO at #5 is probably the most love that song has ever received.

Mofo is a beast. I think it gets a fair bit of love, no?

Miami, not as much, but I think it's such a cool track, the 90s version of Bullet the Blue Sky. And their pairing of the two during Popmart might be my favourite all-time U2 moment.

I'm pleasantly surprised to see Your Blue Room on a few others' lists.

Yeah, I’ve seen a lot of love for Mofo over the years.  Miami, no.

Sure, lots of U2 songs get love, even though they don't make the top 20 of peoples list. U2 has nearly 270 songs now and seeing MOFO at #5 is I believe the highest its ever been on any ones list I think. Don't know for sure of course.
