Tough one. Since I voted for Achtung Baby for the first two, I'll go Moment of Surrender.

As for 2000s I still don't get why Beautiful Day didn't make it.  :o

Me either!

They covered it, or rather butchered it, tonight on The Voice. Ewwwww!!! Bono's vocals sound so MUCH better. One of the competitors was on Mickey Mouse Club w/ Christina, Brittney, and Justin and he had a family so maybe the guys were in their early 30s. They had nothing on our 51 year old! Glad I only had to watch it that 5 mins.

ONE  And, I didn't even vote for it in the other rounds.  ;)

I LOVED THE BEAUTIFUL DAY COVER ON THE VOICE TONIGHT!!!!!!! (And this is coming from someone who HATES 99% of U2 covers, ESPECIALLY covers of Beautiful Day, my all time favorite song)

And I voted for One, sorry MOS

Had to apply the desert island logic for this one, 'One' is the better song but I'd rather take 'MOS' with me.

One has largely lost its magic for me because I've heard it so much. MoS still moves me every time I hear it. I may have rated One as the superior song if I heard both for the first time at the same time, but at this moment I would much sooner listen to MoS.

Am I the only person surprised at how close this is? Obviously One has a solid lead and will win, but still, it's far from a blowout despite the fact that it's one of U2's most classic, most famous and best loved songs- and from the 90s!- versus a seven-minute 2000s non-single from No Line On The Horizon.

I love Moment of Surrender so much. But One is my second favorite song of all time. Going with that
