U2 Retrospective

I'm currently working on a U2 song retrospective. No reason, really...just because I love them and want a creme de la creme of songs, if you will. I'm first trying to narrow down the tracks off of the studio albums, namely about 4 per record (though I'll probably have 5 from at least The Joshua Tree and Achtung Baby). I elminated live versions of old songs (Rattle and Hum), bonus tracks (How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb), and instrumentals (The Unforgettable Fire) for the time being. I'll sort through those when I concentrate on B-Sides, Soundtrack Songs, Collaborations, and Alternate Projects (The Passengers, solo stuff, etc.). Anyway, long story short, please let me know which are your favorite songs/which you find most essential on each album. If you have any other suggestions, they are more than appreciated. Thanks!
