So, Bad won yesterday's poll, with an even bigger majority than Streets!  Never saw *that* coming. ;p  The Fly was a very distant second, while The Ocean was the only track that didn't get any votes.

Finally a relatively easy one!  For me it was between A Day Without Me and Mysterious Ways. The latter is mindblowing live, but purely comparing album recordings, I *think* A Day Without Me just about has the edge. Love it.

Hardest one yet! It's almost impossible for me to choose between Mysterious Ways, Indian Summer Sky, and Trip Through Your Wires.

This was pretty easy really. I suppose there's some curse of the eighth track as few of these songs are serious standouts. I do think Crumbs From Your Table is second-best on HTDAAB and one of my favourite U2 political rockers, though, so it got my vote.

(For the record, live Mysterious Ways wipes the floor with studio Mysterious Ways. This poll might've been a bit harder if it were live MW versus Crumbs, but even then I wouldn't have hesitated to go for Crumbs.)

Another easy! Mysterious Ways, by a mile, for me. Love it sooooo much. In fact none of the others does it for me in the same way at all, though I do like them all in different ways. Well, except Red Light, lmao.

Hmm, I don't really care for any of those song.... I should vote "Miami" since I am a PopTart, but I kinda think that "The First Time" is the better song...

Only one song could possess my mother and I to dance around our living room like Morleigh.

I think for once I was in a minority here...

You know, some places are like your auntie,
but there's no place like...MIAMI!

Miami would be my second choice. Because only one song can make me want to get knocked up in a photo booth in Miami... Ahem.

I had to say "With A Shout", since it's the song my blog is named after:
