Wow, I like a lot of these songs.
"In God's Country"...the only song, for me, that stops Joshua Tree from being perfect. It just doesn't fit well for me in the sequence of that album. And it gets too close to the Christian Rock line...
It may be a funny choice since I don't believe in god, but In God's Country is one of my favorites.
I like In a Little While (especially live), Wild Honey, Last Night on Earth, Heartland and Hawkmoon. I prefer Desire live but the album version is still good. Elevation has dumb lyrics but is a fun song and great in concert. Grace has grown on me and as I recently wrote in another thread I now like Unknown Caller after seeing it live, though both still have some lyrics that annoy me.
I can't believe some folks think Magnificent is one of U2's worst songs It is a bit cliche, nostalgic almost, but it's still a great tune.
Well put. I was disappointed at first because I thought a title like that set the bar very high, but I like the song a lot. Really, how could I not like having Bono tell me that he was born to sing for me?
So my list - not counting b-sides, covers, or soundtracks (Passengers included):
1) Miami - dumb lyrics, not particularly interesting musically
2) Playboy Mansion - see above, plus annoying title
3) When I Look at the World - cheesy and boring
4 & 5) something from October - my least favorite of their albums and I don't listen to it enough to remember which songs I like least
