Bad: "I'm wide awake" and that's enough said.

Sometimes you Can't Make it on your own: My favourite U2 song, and holy hell this song is powerful. "Can you. Hear. Me. When. I. Sing!"

Stay (Faraway, So Close!): This one always feels so desperate. It's excellent in how it portrays that.

Wake Up Dead Man: One of my favourites and Bono just sounds so lost and resigned. It's a really powerful song.
Looks like I'm not alone, very underrated song! Love the distorted vocals!

I'll third this. I absolutely love that song, I always have. Criminally underrated, and some of Bono's best lyrics too.

Looks like I'm not so "alone in this world" seeing as other people like Wake Up Dead Man!

It would be near the top of my list too.

Bad:  Bad LIVE is maybe my all-time favorite songs.  I can't stand the recorded Unforgettable Fire version.  It's so, forgettable.  Flat.  Lifeless.  I never listen to that version.  Every single bootleg far surpasses it. Even the "Let it go" on the album is so restrained in comparison.

Agree on Wake Up Dead Man!!!: Now here is an album recording which exudes emotion even though it starts out so subdued.  The desperation and rawness just oozes out of him.

SYCMIOYO, A Sort of Homecoming and Bad are some of the best.

Heartland probably deserves a shout. Otherwise it's one of Tomorrow, Bad or good old One for me.

Red Hill Mining Town

Zenith of the song:

"Love, slowly stripped away
Love, has seen its better day"

The crowning moment of the Joshua Tree LP ...you know it's true!

Sometimes You Can't Make it on your own

I am baffled as to why this song doesn't get more attention around these parts -

'a house does not make a home,
don't leave me here alone'

breaks my heart every time...

For me, it's easily the best song on an otherwise abysmal LP.

  At least half the tracks on the Unforgettable Fire album would qualify. A Sort Of Homecoming, Pride, The Unforgettable Fire, Bad and MLK all spring to mind. The heartfelt emotions heard in Bono's voice, is what has made this album a fan favorite.

I'd agree apart from A man and a woman and Yahweh it's a pretty forgettable album. Nice melodies on Miracle too spoilt by those awful lyrics.
