That's really difficult. I can't decide.

I almost put a "I'd rather jump off a cliff than have to choose" option but that's too easy. I think that option would win.

Oh, you are evil indeed for making me have to choose. Zoo Station won by a hair, though because of the opening guitar riff.

i like them both, but the lyrics to "Zoo Station" blow me away. all the lyrics on Achtung Baby blow me away, really.

I'm being different and saying Zooropa. That song has been the soundtrack to every grandly indecisive moment of my life for the past 3 years or so. (Then again, Zoo Station has been the soundtrack to every new beginning of my life for the past 3 years or so.....but hell, it's Zooropa.)

The song picks up only in the middle, so it's not as up-front and rock-and-rolly as Zoo Station. But I like Zooropa better, too.

And OMG icon! The Impressionable Clergyman!

That IS the most evil poll ever.

OK, if you put a gun to my head.... I'd let you shoot me rather than pick one.

No, OK. On a personal level, I think I adore them equally, but I'll give it to Zooropa just because it's more of a complex musical masterpiece. Whereas Zoo Station just ROCKS YOU DEAD.

In the end that's why I chose it too. Zoo Station is one amazing track, and an even better opening song than Zooropa. But in the end Zooropa is pure genius. The lyrics, the music, the wonderfully long intro...it's so different from U2 but at the same time is exactly U2.

I love it.

I reckon this poll could be a bit skewed, to be honest. Zoo Station is one of those songs that just grabs you immediately... but whilst Zooropa is an *amazing* song too, people tend to be a bit weirded out the first time they listen to it. It's more of a grower... so if anyone hasn't had the time or inclination to really persist with it, they're more likely to pick Zoo Station by default.

Of course, lots of people just love Zoo Station - and who wouldn't!

That is indeed an evil poll, but I'd have to choose Zooropa. Cause. Just cause.

I totally read that as "Battle of the 2005", and first I was like "Uhhh... this is 2006, and that doesn't make sense anyway..."

Choosing between the Zoos is like choosing between my fictional children, but ultimately Zooropa wins, because it's purple space crack, and Zoo Station is just slightly dirty German crack.

You're not allowed to vote because you've known about this for a week.

A little late now, considering I've already voted. Besides, you should be glad, Zooropa is losing, and it would be losing worse if I hadn't voted.

I'm listening to live Zooropa right now... so "Zooropa" it is...although looks like many people disagree. :(

Both songs are great... but Zooropa has the edge for me right now. :)

Oy. After spending a mind-numbing day at work, this poll made my brain go 'splodey, but I'm a self-proclaimed Achtung Baby so I had to go with "Zoo Station".

It was a difficult decision, but I choose Zoo Station. They both have lyrics and music that breathe of U2 (there is no higher compliment), but these lyrics in Zoo Station push me over the edge:

Time is a train
Makes the future the past
Leaves you standing in the station
Your face pressed up against the glass

For me, it's a no-brainer. I never got into Zooropa the song but Zoo Station just rocks, start to finish.

I ultimately chose "Zooropa" as well pla. I find it does go on for a bit too long though... still a better song than "Zoo Station" in my opinion.

The most evil poll ever!

Right on. Some evil power made me choose "Zoo Station" and now I weep.
