Streets is not inferior.

Yes it is. Musically. Structurally and lyrically.

Streets is so by the numbers. Where as the other three songs in this group are anything but.

Elaborate, please.
I don't think that point needs to be elaborated upon... Zooropa, Until The End Of The World, and Ultraviolet are far more interesting and inventive songs than Streets. Look at the first few lines of Streets, for example:

Quote
I wanna run, I want to hide
I wanna tear down the walls
That hold me inside.
I wanna reach out
And touch the flame
Where the streets have no name.

This is very basic writing, honestly. You have your typical U2-isms in there (I wanna..., reaching out for a flame, etc.). The other sons in the poll, however, are written in unique styles that Bono hadn't touched up until that point.

Lyrically, Zooropa is almost discombobulated in its stitched-together-sounding combination of catchphrases and taglines that make for an interesting contrast to the song's other-worldly qualities.

Until The End Of World is written from the first-person and is the first instance I am aware of Bono writing in character in the U2 canon.

Ultraviolet (Light My Way) is more of a stretch because it is the most basic of these three. You can argue that Bono's introduction of the word "baby" is unique for a U2 song and makes Ultraviolet a better lyric than Streets, but I wouldn't go there.

All three are far more interesting than Streets when it comes to instrumentation, something I don't really need in-depth about.

I don't care for lyrics and, honestly, I think this is an unfortunate criterion to talk about music.
Are you suggesting that lyrics have no relevance in the quality of music?

Well, guys.. I'm just 22 and I only truly discovered U2 a few years ago - I'm falling more in love with them and their music every day; on the borderline of obsessed! Only wish I had've been in my twenties when they were at their prime in the 80s and 90s. Do you think this is normal? Lol!

Well, I see I do not need to elaborate, as my wingman WookieWarrior10 obviously has my back!
Haha! I didn't mean to speak for you but I had to say something!

I'm in Vancouver. Considering it rains 10 months/year here I really hope not.

Seriously? Go listen to some classical music then. And what are your favorite U2 songs - 4th of July, Things To Make And Do?

Does Anyone in Vancouver know if the roof at BC Place will be kept open for the concert or if they'll leave it closed?
