Anyone think there are any songs that every agrees on liking/disliking?
There's probably no single song that everyone dislikes.
But there's probably a few songs that everyone can agree they like?

For instance, everyone likes Streets, right?

I've never heard anyone say anything bad about Angel of Harlem.

Hey, nobody better say anything bad about Angel of Harlem! StrongGirl will find you and beat you up! ;D ;D ;D

Exactly, there isn't anything bad to say about Angel of Harlem!  8)

 It's a bit hard for me to understand why some dislike certain songs off of HTDAAB... I like them. There are some U2 songs that I don't really like all that much immediately but I end up warming up to.  Example: I thought that "Walk On" was okay or pretty good at first listen for some reason, but now I absolutely love it! Some just work their way into you.

How exactly can someone dislike "Stuck in a Moment..."    ???  ???  ???  ???

Some songs take ages to kick in - Numb was an example - I used to skip it on the 1990-2000 but now I listen to it and make up random lyrics for it  :P

I can say with total honesty that I've never met a U2 song I didn't like (a couple of Passengers tunes come damn close, though) so I would never say "Stuck in a Moment..." is a bad song, but it's easily one of my least favorites on ATYCLB.  It just seems very pedestrian; it's like a pop version of "I Still Haven't Found..."  I've always thought it represented the Jan Brady middle child in a ballad triptych with the far superior "Stay" and "Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own"...

Stuck In A Moment's a great song. For my money, one of the most melodic songs they've released this decade. And I'm a sucker for a good singalong. Pure soul; it's like a Rattle & Hum song without the gnawing pretentiousness.

Yes, Babyface is one of the best songs on Zooropa. Technology and voyeurism and loneliness. A great 21st century song!

Yeah, it's terrible. It shouldn't have made the R&H cut. I'd rather they included WOWY or SBS from the movie. NOT Watchtower. Helter Skelter doesn't do anything for me, either. U2 ain't a covers band, for a reason!

Actually, I think Angel of Harlem is kinda "meh"  (runs and hides from StrongGirl)

You might reconsider if you've heard, say, "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)", "Unchained Melody", "Night + Day", etc....
