    No comments except that in order to make one of these lists, the writer should be familiar with the artists entire catalogue, and maybe have taken music theory. That would be nice, but instead SO many of these lists are just attention grabbing headlines, with song choices that could be the tracklisting to one of those “playlist” cds for sale in best buy. IE six big well know hits, 2 minor hits, an oddball, and an album cut. The problem is that it seems as if those last 2 are just the 1 or songs the writer seems to know for whatever reason. Like it was on the cd that his or her classmate burned for her in 8th grade, there fore is the only other U2 song that she of he hears. While they are all in fun, its frusrating to fans to see thier label as of the best put on certain artists song, when clearly label any kind of art as better that this or that is totally subjective, and even so anyone familar with the u2 catalogue would most like not have selected these songs. Looking on a u2 fansite or message board, would be a nice way to see what the fanbase likes or- get this maybe listen to thier work and decide for yourself. The title of this article should be “10 U2 songs out the handful that Cindy from CBS Radio LIkes”. Because “Top 10 u2 Songs” is very inaccurate.
