Both are better when played live, but The Fly kills One both live and on record.

I wouldn't get out your bug spray just yet  ;)

Very hard one to pick.  But I cannot imagine how many musical artists out there are jealous they did not write One.

I did vote for The Fly and all, but I am questioning that myself.

While The Fly is a masterpiece, so is One, and only one of those songs kept the band from splitting.

Being objective, perhaps The Fly vs With or Without You would be ideal final.

The classic 80's sound of U2 versus the song which best represents the experimentation of the 90s.

But there's still a way to go.
