So, my cousin and I have been really into U2 as of late, thanks to a podcast I've mentioned a few times on-air: U Talkin' U2 To Me? It's two hilarious comedians, Scott Aukerman and Adam Scott, sitting around and...uh, talking U2? If you're looking for a U2 podcast that delves deep into the history of the band...look elsewhere. This is a podcast that is just two fans of the band having a general conversation that will sometimes be about U2, and other times, not so much. They're currently on REM, and I can't wait to get caught up with that. 

Anyway, long story short, my cousin and I have been so into U2 lately that we decided to break down our top songs from Bono and the boys, and I decided to share mine with you, with no context as to how I arrived to my conclusions. My list is certainly the most definitive list, and the only one that truly matters.
