With Or Without You is an obvious choice.

I picked Yahweh, with Please/In A Little While/Out Of Control coming in a close 2nd

Hi,

I just joined the forums this morning so I hope you don't mind if I take part in this poll.

I voted for Please, my love for POP sort of comes and goes but I don't think a week has gone by in my life since 97 that I haven't listened to this song.

Also, voted for Yahweh. Wasn't a huge fan of this one when HTDAAB was first released but after I saw it played live at MSG my appreciation for it went through the roof.

Unlike last year's poll, this one includes the songs from all three decades.

It wasn't painless. I wanted to vote for WOWY because it is iconic; yet it's in its own category, so I won't vote it in here.

I wanted to vote for ISS, but voted instead for OOC. It always gets me bopping, their first single, great energy.

So, it was Please and OOC.

Post by: TheSceneoftheAccident on February 12, 2012, 09:42:19 AM
It has to be With or Without You. I'm torn between In a Little While and Please though... Oh to hell with it. Voted Please because I'm going through a Pop phase.  ;D

Ah, another one of these. Great, it's been a while since I've been reminded that Streets is everyone's favorite U2 song.

Not to sound mean or anything but, can't we already predict the outcome? This kind of "tournament" should be done after U2 release their next album.

Anyway...

With Or Without You
In A Little While

I love Pop, but Please is among my least favorite from that album.  I went with OOC (I just put that on a "Getting to Know U2" playlist for a friend) and In a Little While (I know it won't win, I know it takes a lot of crap around here...but I still really like it  8)).

Please is one of my least favourites from the Pop album as well, but compared to the other songs provided for selection, I still like it best.

It becomes harder now that you can vote for two, and there's more of a choice.

With or Without You and In A Little While.

its my favorite. what's yours? no im curious im not mockin the great Exile giver of the mp3s

I think we voted the same in this one (Please and Indian Summer Sky). For the life of me I can't figure out what my favorite U2 song of all is. It's probably on Achtung Baby, though.

This is why I agonize over such polls. I could pick most of those songs and have valid reasons why. Only picking two really rankles!
