A couple of months ago my vote would have been for Magnificent. But times change.

Magnificent, easily too. 

I love Until The End Of The World, but Magnificent is really the only U2 song that blew my face off my skull at first listen.  I'll never forget it.

War or peace, life or death, Until The End Of The World or Magnificent, same thing for me.

Honestly, if this is even close something is seriously wrong with peoples personal opinions of U2 songs.  ;D

Lyrically, musically, live, recorded -  UTEOTW kills magnificent anyway you look at it.

All imoho of course  ;)

My favorite U2 song v's my # 250 (approx)

UTEOTW, easily.

This really isn't fair to Magnificent. These two songs shouldn't even be mentioned in the same breath. UTEOTW all the way

Magnificent is by far one of U2's best post-Zooropa songs. But I'm going with Until the End of the World here One of their best ever songs.

I'm really getting worried about you now, Zoost.  I may have to get the men in white coats to come and take you away.

Very few songs beat UTEOTW's consistency live.

I never agree with TD but here we agree. Zoost and OAP need to be put under surveillance.

Grace and WH are the 2 expendable tracks on ATYCLB imo.

UTEOTW ftw.
