Yeah, tough one eh. I went for Bad.

I guess I should have stressed live or album version. As they are both stunning live folks, lets go with album versions only in this poll.

Love Streets but had to go for Bad almost without hesitation..... Bad has that unique intensity.
I prefer it live, as it just becomes magical, but even album version (as you requested for the poll) well, for me it wins :)

Yeah, I did this poll between Bad and Street's because I know how popular Street's is and I wanted to see how it stands up against Bad.

Until The End Of The World is my favorite song, but it has just been used in a couple of polls. Tubling Dice has just started a favorite song thread, so I got my chance to drool over it  :P

Until The End Of The World... love that one too.
I can't say I have ONE single favourite... everytime I try and ultimately choose a single song, I end up with a list of several... XD

It's too relative a question. If we're talking LP versions (which we are), then Streets. If we're talking live, then which era? I don't think Bono has sung Bad very well since ZooTV. But if we're talking best live performance of each song, then it's Bad at Live Aid, hands down.

The thing about Streets and Bad is that I like both in equal measure but I don't really have an hard-on for either, if you know what I mean.

Unfortunately, yes, you were very clear.

Agreed, thats why I went with the album versions, as I agree with you on the performances of Bad live (I also think Streets is not as good live now as it was - the last great versions of that for me were on the Elevation Tour.)

As for bad Live - the versions I have of it on the bootlegs from the UF tour are just stunning, better than Live Aid in my opinion.

I opened the thread and actually gasped when I saw the choices.  That is so not fair.  LOL!  Good one!!!

ugh...that was so hard to pick.  Album version Bad won in the end.  I actually had to go listen to them both.

I don't think I could pick between live versions of those songs though.

Dang, zoost.  Way to give a girl a heart attack. 

These are the two songs that convey the concept of heaven to me.  I have a saved-my-life relationship with Bad, and Streets is the song that keeps me going now. 

Had to go with Bad because of my history with it, plus the elation that comes with hearing those sequencers start at a live gig (yeah, I know the poll was about album versions).  You *know* U2 is going to play Streets, and you kind of psych yourself up for it.  But if you get Bad?  Well, words can't describe that feeling.   :)

Wow, great great question.

As much as I LOVE LOVE LOVE Bad, I have to give it to Streets.  Yes, hearing Bad live is heart stopping, but the fact that Streets is played EVERY NIGHT and still creates that soaring uplifting feeling every time puts it over the top.  So inspirational, so heavenly
