I've been always curious on Ultraviolet.

What makes it such a masterpiece of a song? I mean I really like the song and all, but at this rate its going to be in the top 4.

What's the strategy?  To vote for the song you prefer?

I thought Zooropa could use a little bit more help. So my instinct was UV. But I really like both songs so the fact that I picked Zooropa was just by a smidge, anyway. I love pretty much all the songs on AB and Zooropa (minus The Wander and Numb).

I've always wondered the same thing about Streets, except I don't really like the song, but at this rate it's going to win the whole bloody shaboodle.

I've always preferred Zooropa, but I think I'm still in backlash against the Zooropa-mania that erupted last March (Particularly given that, well, the live version was the rare U2 song to be EXCELLENT... but better studio than live) and I ended up voting for Ultraviolet!

Ultraviolet is my 5th favorite U2 song.  Zooropa is 6th.

Ultraviolet.

Yeah I know.

In all the ways I compare Zooropa and UV, Zooropa wins like easily. Musically its one of the best things they've ever done. Listen to Edge's guitar. Never has he played something so unique at that point. And the lyrics are just as strong.

Live is the only exception as UV has always translated live well.
