Acknowledging that U2 are an even more significant rock 'n' roll band than Bon Jovi, here are my twenty-five favorite U2 songs (in proximate order):

1. When Love Comes to Town (with B.B. King)

2. Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For

3. With or Without You

4. Stuck in a Moment You Can't Get Out Of

5. Beautiful Day

6. Pride (In the Name of Love)

7. All Because of You

8. Sometimes You Can't Make It on Your Own

9. Sunday, Bloody Sunday

10. Get On Your Boots

11. Vertigo

12. One

13. I'll Go Crazy if I Don't Go Crazy Tonight

14. All I Want Is You

15. New Year's Day

16. Where the Streets Have No Name

17. A Man and a Woman

18. Two Hearts Beat as One

19. Running to Stand Still

20. Mysterious Ways

21. Miracle Drug

22. Van Dieman's Land

23. Angel of Harlem

24. Desire

25. Bullet the Blue Sky

And my top five favorite U2 albums would be:

I picked up a copy of War in Dublin on my honeymoon. Sunday, Bloody Sunday is probably my favorite U2 song.

The song you neglect is "I Will Follow". Ah, U2 - my answer when someone asks me my favorite "Christian" Band.
