When it comes to U2 albums there always seems to me to one particular song on an album of theirs that I come to love. They are not necessarily the most famous tracks on the album, but for me they seem special. Even on the few U2 albums that I'm not so overly keen on I have found a favourite (yes, I know, you can pummel me later!).
So here's my list:
Stories for Boys - (Boy)
Gloria - (October)
40 - (War)
Wire - (The Unforgettable Fire)
Running To Stand Still - (The Joshua Tree)
Love Rescue Me - (Rattle and Hum)
Tryin' To Throw Your Arms Around The World - (Achtung Baby)
Stay (Faraway, So Close) - (Zooropa)
If God Will Send His Angels - (Pop)
Kite - (All That You Can't Leave Behind)
Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own - (How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb)
Unknown Caller - (No Line On The Horizon)
And on the latest album, Songs of Innocence it's Song For Someone.
