Kite

Please is so overrated.

agree

Also agree. I've tried to get into it, but I really can't. I don't see anything special about it.

Well then, I don't think you're trying hard enough.  Have you listened much to the strings version?  That transformed my appreciation for the song.

Please.

Musically I love both.

Lyrically Please dominates.

I'm blown away that Please is NOT murdering Kite.

Obviously I went with Kite, which is so underrated, instead of Please, which is so overrated.

I'M A MAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN

Oh Christ this is hard.

The best song on one amazing album versus the best song on another?

For the first time in the entire contest, I actually can't decide yet...

There, I've corrected you. This is laughable this matchup. Bono's lyrical apex (Please) v's Kite's mediocre lyrics. Although Kite is one of my favorites off ATYCLB, this is a no-brainer for me.

Please, every which way you look at it.

Disagree. Album versions are about equal, and both live versions (PopMart Please and Vertigo Kite) are transcendental.

Studio versions are far from equal and PopMart Please was the highlight of the entire show.

I like Please, but Bono sounds better on Kite. I know he was going through throat issues during Pop and PopMart, so Kite should go through for letting us all know Bono was not losing his voice.  8)

ATYCLB is vocally Bono's worst album.

It is, but Kite is a definite exception to that.  Great vocal performance.
