My top 3 U2 songs are Until The End Of The World, Acrobat and Please.

Well, as UTEOTW is not in this group, you can guess which two I voted for.

Impeccable taste, Zoost.

But what was your Miami love; a flash in the pan?

Miami is in my 4th favorite. Last Night On Earth is 5th!

I wonder if the lack of votes for Rattle and Hum tracks stems back to most people's overall dislike of the album?

I never said that Please isn't a good song, it is just over-rated by people on this forum. It isn't anywhere near as good as the songs that I chose yet it still gets hyped up to be better than them by some people. Yes that version is incredible, but it cannot compare to the sheer passion that Bono puts into Sometimes, Adam gives us on Magnificent, Edge on Acrobat or Larry on TUF.

Please is a fantastic song, but it isn't as fantastic as some others.

O, P, I, N, I, O, and N!

That spells opinion!

I consider Please 3x better than Sometimes, and 2x better than Magnificent.

It's my opinion.

You can spell it out all you want but it won't stop people from disagreeing with you. I think Please is definitely in the top half of all of U2's songs, but because I find some songs better I get murdered for my opinion.

Please is a great song of that there is no doubt, but for people to turn round and say that it isn't over-rated is ludicrous in my book.

It's the same with people saying that One or Bad is over-rated. How can you over-rate such a monumental song? Please is over-rated to me because it isn't as good as One or Bad, yet people somehow consider it to be up their with U2's finest work.

How is Bad a monumental song? It wasn't a single. Outside of hardcore U2 fans, most people I've spoken to have no idea what Bad is.

It earned its place in folklore through the performance at LiveAid.

It was performed at both my U2 shows and I think it's up there with The Fly and UTEOTW as a song I'd want at my next U2 show.

Where The Streets Have No Name is the most overrated U2 song of all.
