Running To Stand Still

Streets has a killer riff but not much else. RTSS has heartbreaking, heartfelt lyrics.

I still love Streets. RTSS is a great song, but Streets is just that much better.

So you base your decision on what is the best song musically, lyrically etc etc on one performance at a show that this song could be nothing short of epic. This is a poll about which song is better in a studio setting, am I wrong?

Well actually, I base my decision on the fact that Streets is U2's signature song and is far superior musically. The emotion that gets put into that song when played live is unrivalled. I've never said RTSS isn't a fine song, but it doesn't compare with Streets.

On record RTSS is very dull and bland. Only when it is played live does it become fantastic. Streets is fantastic on record and even more so live.
