My answer may be slightly biased... I felt I had to pick Love Is Blindness just because the whole of Achtung Baby is so perfect. I particularly love Yahweh as well, though, it's one of the best album closers they've ever done (although I'm glad Fast Cars is on after it, so it doesn't end on too much of a bittersweet note!).

Yeah, they are two great songs, it's hard to choose between them. It's hard to choose between any of the U2 closers.

even though i have "fast cars" on my cd, i think yahweh was a great closer. it sort of wrapped up the whole mood of the album.

HAS to be 40. Nothing has, nor ever will, close an album better than 40 closed War.

I ... don't know. This is too hard. Every closer since 40, I just can't rank one above the other. They're all so bloody superb. U2 closers are regularly some of the best songs on the album.

All I Want Is You is a very beautiful song and it was one of the first U2 ballads I really loved so it gets my vote.

Such a hard question!

I think 40, MLK, All I Want Is You, Love is Blindness, and Wake Up Dead Man are all PERFECT closers for their respective albums...

But Love is Blindness fits my current mood, so had to go with that :)

I gotta go with All I Want is You. It's so beautiful. I love the long ending with the strings. Lovely.

I picked Love Is Blindness, cos i'm completely in love with Achtung Baby, and it's finishes it perfectly! Was also tempted to say Wake Up Dead Man though...

I have to say, "All I Want is You," "40" and "Love is Blindness" are the only three on that list I like as U2 songs. ("The Wanderer" isn't bad for a Johnny Cash song, "Yahweh" and "Is that All" are dreadful, and none of the others stand out to me.) Interesting poll, though.
