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.

I actually think that Zooropa does that better than the Fly does but that's just me.

There are probably more 'experimental' songs from the 90s than The Fly in sound and structure, but it was The Fly which heralded in the decade of reinvention, and for those of us who were fans at the time, the new sound was startling.

Yeah that's true, I might be bias too as Zooropa is my favorite song.
