Shock, maybe you should have put all the songs there, given us let's say 5 choices each, scratch all the ones that got no votes, start another poll, give us 4 votes each, scratch the ones that got 1 or no votes, open another poll, give us 3 votes each..... ;)  you get the point.

"Song" or "recording"? If it's song, that's a tough call. I'd probably change my mind every 5 minutes. If it's recording, it's a no brainer - the Live Aid version of Bad.

I voted for "Streets" for one main reason.  If you read up on the song, it had so many layers in its creation, it was almost scrapped by production due to frustration.  In terms of compilation, Steets brings so much to the table.  Aside from also being their best live song, the song is awesome in every aspect any way you slice it!

The fly, not only because it might contain the best Edge solo ever  ;D But also because that it showed that they weren't afraid to put something totally different out into the playing field, like perhaps if AC/DC played a piano rock ballad (god that won't happen ::))
