Whose Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses
This is the song that makes me dance no matter where I am or in what mood I'm in when I hear it. The song where I can't help but be happy. If I'm in the car I turn it on full blast and sing along with a smile on my face "hey hey sha la la hey hey sha la la" and the cheeky "baby, can we still be friends?" It was re-released as a b side on Achtung Baby and I honestly have to admit that it's hard to come up with the "favorite" version. I'd probably die if U2 ever played this live from the sheer joy of this little gem.
