And we can’t reach any higher
If we can’t deal with ordinary love

From the cradle to the grave
When all I want is you

They could not take your pride
In the name of love

We can be as one

Who could ever forget the awesome music video – the band plays atop a building in downtown Los Angeles to fans on street level.

We’re still building then burning down love
Burning down love
And when I go there, I go there with you
It’s all I can do


5. Vertigo
Released in 2004
On Album How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb
The song is about a man who was against his country due to his lack of freedom.

The night is full of holes
‘Cause bullets rip the sky of ink with gold
They twinkle as the boys play rock and roll
They know that they can’t dance, at least they know

4. One
Released in 1992
On Album Achtung Baby
There are many interpretations of the song of which include the unification of U2 after many struggles and also thought to signify German reunification.

One life, you got to do what you should
One life, with each other
Sisters, brothers

3. I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For
Released in 1987
On Album The Joshua Tree

I have spoke with the tongue of angels
I have held the hand of a devil
It was warm in the night
I was cold as a stone
But I still haven’t found what I’m looking for

2. With or Without You
Released in 1987
On Album The Joshua Tree

Through the storm, we reach the shore
You give it all but I want more
And I’m waiting for you

1. Beautiful Day

On Album All That You Can’t Leave Behind
The song is about a man who has lost everything but finds joy in what he still has.

You love this town
Even if that doesn’t ring true
You’ve been all over
And it’s been all over you
It’s a beautiful day
Don’t let it get away
