Favorite U2 Album and why: Achtung Baby, because it has everything: songs about spirituality, love, hate, joy, pain, confusion, understanding and everything else, songs to make you dance, to make you think, to make you feel just about anything.
Favorite single off that album: "Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses"
Top 2 non-singles off the album: "Ultraviolet (Light My Way)", "Love Is Blindness"

Top 2 singles not off that album: "Where the Streets Have No Name", "Stay (Faraway, So Close!)
Top 2 non-singles not off that album: "Kite", "A Sort of Homecoming"

Least favorite album: Pop
Top 2 least favorite singles: "Discotheque", "Stuck in a Moment You Can't Get Out Of" (because it got overplayed)
Top 2 least favorite non-singles: "So Cruel", "Red Light"

Favorite song not off an album: "The Ground Beneath Her Feet" or "Hallelujah Here She Comes"

3 Songs you wish were singles: "Kite", "One Tree Hill", "Acrobat"
2 Songs you wish were not singles: "Discotheque" and "Stuck in a Moment"
1 Song off of HTDAAB you really like and why: "City of Blinding Lights" because it's about NYC (at least in part), it makes me feel like "Where the Streets Have No Name" does, it reminds me of all my loved ones (especially my mom), and it makes me remember all the good times I've had over the past four years in college.

Favorite U2 Album and why: All That You Can't Leave Behind. I got it for my 17th birthday...September 10th, 2001. I listened to it once and the world changed the next day. This album got me through that time. It saved my ass. I'm pretty sure others would agree.

However, one of my faves is on that album: "I Threw a Brick Through a Window." Has one of the best (and most definitely true) quotes ever.

Favorite song not off an album: "Levitate". I absolutely cannot get enough of this song.

"I Threw a Brick Through a Window"

I love this song, too, and in fact wished they would play this one during the "oldies" section of their current tour. I have a 45 of it where they played it live back in the day and it's fantastic - it really shines.

Favorite U2 Album and why: Hard question, I love three albums almost equally. I would probably go with "All That You Can't Leave Behind" even though it's a newer album and I'm a die-hard fan since the early 80's. I love every song on that album and it helped me through a difficult time when I was going through my divorce. The album came out the week after we split up and so many songs expressed what I was feeling.

Favorite single off that album: "Stuck In A Moment (You Can't Get Out Of)"
Top 2 non-singles off the album: "Kite", "In A Little While"

Top 2 singles not off that album: "One", "With Or Without You"
Top 2 non-singles not off that album: "Bad", "Acrobat"

Least favorite album: Zooropa
Top 2 least favorite singles: "Lemon", "Discotheque"
Top 2 least favorite non-singles: "Bullet The Blue Sky", "The Wanderer"

Favorite song not off an album: "Sweetest Thing"

3 Songs you wish were singles: "Bad", "Kite", "One Tree Hill"
2 Songs you wish were not singles: "Lemon", "Discotheque"
1 Song off of HTDAAB you really like and why: "Original of the Species" because it's a beautifully composed song with great guitar riffs

Favorite U2 Album and why: Achtung Baby-Ive had the album for like 10 years but it just really clicked with me recently. I dont know why but before I was lukewarm about it before. It is the most complete U2 albums out there.

Top 2 non-singles off the album: Ultraviolet(Light my way) and Trying to throw your arms around the world

Top 2 singles not off that album: Stuck in a moment you cant get out of, I still havent found what Im looking for
Top 2 non-singles not off that album: Seconds, Red Hill Mining Town

Least favorite album: I actually like all the u2 cds but I guess October is my least favorite but its still an 8 out of 10 to me. The songs are so forgettable
Top 2 least favorite singles:Gloria and Fire were the only ones
Top 2 least favorite non-singles: With a Shout, Scarlet

Favorite song not off an album: The Hands that Built America

3 Songs you wish were singles: Seconds, Ultraviolet (light my way), Kite

Favorite U2 Album and why: Achtung Baby. If you have to ask, you'll never know.
Favorite single off that album: One
Top 2 non-singles off the album: Ack, that's an evil question - all of them!  I dunno... maybe So Cruel and Ultra Violet.

Top 2 singles not off that album: Eek... maybe Lemon and Hold Me Thrill Me Kiss Me Kill Me.
Top 2 non-singles not off that album: This is impossible. OK, Love And Peace Or Else... after that I'm gonna have to pick one at random. Let's say... Zooropa.

Least favorite album: October
Top 2 least favorite singles: Mmm, maybe Miss Sarajevo if it counts as a U2 single. And I seem to recall the single version of Out Of Control (on U2-3) is pretty terrible due to Bono's weird mock-cockney accent!
Top 2 least favorite non-singles: Meh, I don't know... probably stuff off October just because that's the album I listen to the least. Let's say Is That All and Scarlet.

Favorite song not off an album: Erm... I'll keep this simple by assuming you mean a single: Hold Me Thrill Me Kiss Me Kill Me, though I love A Celebration as well. If this can include B-sides, I wouldn't even know where to start because there are so many fabulous ones!

3 Songs you wish were singles: It'd be cool if So Cruel got played on the radio. And I'd love to see a video for Love And Peace Or Else. A Man And A Woman would make a great single too.
2 Songs you wish were not singles: Errrr, I dunno. I'm not the hugest fan of Walk On, but I can't think of much on ATYCLB that would have made a better single. And maybe instead of releasing Electrical Storm they could have remixed an old B-side like they did with Sweetest Thing?
1 Song off of HTDAAB you really like and why: Love And Peace Or Else is my favourite track (though I adore them all). It's such a dark, sexy mofo of a song, one of the most impressive tracks they've ever done. I didn't expect anything quite like it, at this stage of their career.
