WHY WON'T STREETS JUST DIE, ALREADY?

The live version is possibly the best U2 track out there, but the album version is kind of dull after hearing it live so many times. Stay definitely gets my vote.

Stay.

Again, Streets has a great intro riff but not much else. The lyrics aren't great. Stay on the other hand is a heartbreaking masterpiece.

So will Stay becomes the Streets slayer?  It got my vote on lyrics alone, but I know there's a good number of voters who've had transcendent live experiences with Streets.  We shall see!

And if Streets is going to beat Running and Stay, Please, then I'll vote for Streets UNTIL it comes up against UV or WOWY.
