Possibly not but I but I love it when Roy sings it and U2 does a nice live version as well and I like the story behind it, great song writing for another legend.

Nice list, esp with Heartland in your top ten, but where is the love for EBTTRT?    That one is undoubtedly one of their best if not THE best.

8. Desire
9. Xanax and Wine

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.

Well you'll be surprised to hear that it sits at #2 in my list behind The Fly.
