Pop as an album is underrated, imho. There are a lot of songs off of it that I just adore, like Mofo, Please, Velvet Dress (ooh, yes)...

Running to Stand Still, Acrobat, Ultraviolet, Heartland, Please, Velvet Dress (if we're talking about among the masses, not obsessive U2 fans :D ).

Those are the first, but certainly not the only, ones that come to mind.

Running to Stand Still should be up there with WOWY and Streets and Pride as a U2 80's Live staple IMO. Blows me away every time.

Also, Drowning Man, The Wanderer, Please, If God Will Send His Angels, Heartland, and the Unforgettable Fire.

i think most of pop is underated - please, mofo, if god will send his angels, gone, discotheque...

ultraviolet too, and i'm drawining a complete mental block now because i'm sure there are like a billion others.

Acrobat! Acrobat! ACROBAT!!!!

*calm*

Also... Running To Stand Still, Ultraviolet, Please, Mofo, If God Will Send His Angels (sometimes that song just expresses my exact emotions. it's extremely beautiful.)

I agree about Pop not getting enough credit. I think people just tend to misunderstand it because it's, well... different.

WOWY always has been, always will be, my favorite song of all time, though.

"Shadows and Tall Trees", "Gone", and "Electrical Storm" spring to mind immediately. I could probably think of more, given more time.

Oh, how could I ever forget "Tomorrow"? What about "Luminous Times"? "An Cat Dubh"? If we can include Passengers, I would say "Slug" and "Your Blue Room".

I guess it all depends on what you consider "underrated". I could list a lot of my favourite songs of theirs, but other hardcore U2 fans love them too. Are we talking about songs that are underrated among U2 fans, or by the public at large?
