Another interesting match up!  Love Kite as ATYCLB was the soundtrack of my end-of-high-school-won't-be-living-at-home-anymore-days, but Please is on my shortlist of U2 songs I'm sorry I haven't seen live.  So Please it is.

yea this is true. Please is one of the "greats" off Pop. Kite is greatness too but ATYCLB doesnt age well, at all.

Please is so overrated.

Also agree. I've tried to get into it, but I really can't. I don't see anything special about it.

Now Kite...the album version probably not so much, but the 8 minute live version off the Window in the Skies single? So amazing.

There, I've corrected you. This is laughable this matchup. Bono's lyrical apex (Please) v's Kite's mediocre lyrics. Although Kite is one of my favorites off ATYCLB, this is a no-brainer for me.

Please, every which way you look at it.

Disagree. Album versions are about equal, and both live versions (PopMart Please and Vertigo Kite) are transcendental.

I like Please, but Bono sounds better on Kite. I know he was going through throat issues during Pop and PopMart, so Kite should go through for letting us all know Bono was not losing his voice.  8)

It's not that I don't find anything special about Please. It's just that I don't find it THAT special. People treat it as this staggering epic that I just don't get from it.

Kite, as a very human reflection on death and letting go of a loved one, moves me far more than a song about The Troubles. The sentiment of Kite is universal, unlike the subject matter of Please, which doesn't impact me at all.

That's only one level to the song.  It would be an unusual U2 song if it were so simple.

A person can twist any ambiguous lyric to fit whatever interpretation they want it to fit. Please doesn't move me one iota. It certainly isn't on the same level as Kite, one of U2's finest lyrical works of the 00s.

+100000000000

And I know I'm going to get RIPPED APART for saying this, especially because I never saw the songs live, but from the DVD's and videos that I've seen, Please just looked so boring live.  And to me, it was a crappy lead-in to a crappy techno version of Streets.  Kite on the other hand, is just filled with so much personal, raw emotion and looked captivating live.  And the Vertigo version of Kite was spectacular.

I don't think I've heard the strings version, I've mostly just listened to the one on the studio album and the one performance of it during the MTV Music Awards. Is that a Popmart live cut? If so, I'll give it a listen. I'm always open to trying to like U2 songs I don't like initially.

ATYCLB is vocally Bono's worst album.



I think his voice was in similar shape as it was with Pop; he just tried to do more with his voice than he was capable of on ATYCLB (eg WILATW). He was able to hit some notes he couldn't hit circa Pop at the same time however.

I thought SBS was the highlight of that show.  One of the rare occasions that it was apt for U2 to perform that song.

But really, do you think Kite was the highlight of the Elevation tour?  I thought The Fly was, along with UTEOTW.  Both AB songs.

SBS is a close second for me. A very powerful performance of it, and the name-reading at the end was beautiful. But considering the emotions Bono must have been going through at the time, I'd say that Kite was way more important than SBS.

I don't think Kite was the highlight of the Elevation tour because I'd have to agree with you about UTEOTW and The Fly. Both stand-out songs performed at Boston. Kite just stole the show at Slane for me, more so than Please did on PopMart. That's why it got my vote.

...I still haven't made up my mind on how to vote. O_O

Please is one of your top 10 U2 songs and Kite isn't, so the choice should be easy.

i agree, TD

That's what I thought. Must have been someone else who is obviously quite delusional.

Ah, but Please is around 9 and Kite is around 11 in my most recent list, and my favourites aren't really set in stone beyond the top three or four these days.

I still haven't voted, but I'm slightly leaning towards Please at the moment... I'll either abstain or wait until tomorrow, I imagine. Very hard to vote against my second favourite song of the 00s. >.<

*Hint* Right now Please needs all the support it can get.

Kite is the ONLY 00s song still in the running. If Bono finds out every song from the entire decade was culled in favour of the 90s single, the next tour will surely continue being a nostalgia tour. Vote Kite!

Come on folks, Please vote for Please.

Kite, although a good song, is just not on a par with it.

'Please' is just too personal for me not to have picked it. I love Kite SO much and it was very painful, but 'Please' speaks to me on so many levels.

Maybe now Bono and the boys will play Please on their next tour and play less stuff from ATYCLB. :)

Wow! Glad I made up my mind the way I did, I think, even if it was painful to knock out Kite.
