Ultraviolet by far. Don't get me wrong, Zooropa is a great song, but it's just riding the waves from The 360 Tour. Ultraviolet has always been better.

Urgh, hard one. I love both, but UV is ultimately the more exciting - and emotional - track and therefore gets my vote.

Boom Cha!

Zooropa still by far.

Musically and lyrically a masterpiece, and probably the best song to capture their 90s output.

Ultraviolet is better on record but after 360, Zooropa takes the live honours.

Ultraviolet got my vote  8)

I think both these songs have benefited from a surge in popularity since 360 began, but I think Ultraviolet was the more effective live song on that tour, and it was a great live song on Zoo TV, too.

Even if Zooropa goes out at this stage, it's still a big achievement to make the last 8 U2 songs.
