Obviously there's a LOT of great ones to choose from but I'm really curious to see what everyone thinks!

 

I know that there are alternate versions of some of these available but these should be all of the main releases.

I went with Every Breaking Wave, but it's kinda a 3-way tie between Invisible, EBW, and Crystal Ballroom.  With several close behind them.

I went with EBW, too, but Iris, Cedarwood Road, Invisible, Lucifer's Hands, and Crystal Ballroom are all close behind. I remember when Electrical Storm was released as a single in 2002 with The Best of 1990-2000 and a Philadelphia-area DJ was saying how impressive U2 is with releasing another amazing song after (at that time) 20+ years. Well, here we are 12 years after that statement and it remains true. I can't wait for Songs of Experience -- and hope a lot of the "abandoned" projects from 2009 - 2014 see the light of day, for subscribers or for the public at large.

It looks like we definitely have a front runner so far!  I'll be interested to see if it changes at all as more people weigh in....

Just voted EBW was stuck between Invisible The Miracle and EBW  but after hearing the acoustic version live there was no other choice for me

Hope they play it acoustic when the  tour starts

I've just voted for Lucifer's hands--it's a great song and I still can't wrap my head around the fact it's not included in the main album. The music is great with great new sounds and it's U2-like at the same time; the lyrics are impressive and I love how they echo back to Rejoice.

After hearing California live today I had to vote for it. If I got another vote I'd pick another track. Very hard to choose and it's great to be liking so many.

One song with no votes. Is it just me or does This Is Where You Can Reach Me Now sound like it should've been one of the Spider-Man songs. Definitely my least favorite on the album.

Version 2 of 'Sleep Like a Baby Tonight' on disc 2 is pretty damn good if you ask me. 'Lucifers Hands' also standing out for me and 'Invisible' is just such a tight tune with great guitar from Edge....what to vote for indeed? Would probably have to lay my hat at the feet of 'Iris'.

I agree with you, yardie! Well, except on Invisible. Even if I love the live version they did on a roof top with Jimmy Fallon, the studio version sounds too cheap for me.

Ah, I have to stick up for that song, its my third favourite after the troubles and EBW. I could have also easily voted for CB or Ordinary love too.

It's like being offered a full box of chocolates, all yummy, but you have to pick one. 

(Although Cedarwood Rd is the nutty chocolate for me- ie my least favourite)
