160. U2, 'Moment of Surrender'

Writers: Bono, the Edge, Adam Clayton, Larry Mullen Jr.
Producers: Brian Eno, Daniel Lanois
Released: March '09, Interscope

The most devastating U2 ballad since "One" sets lush, gospel-tinged music - much of it improvised live in the studio - against dark subject matter: It's about a junkie riding the subway. 

Appears on: No Line on the Horizon (Interscope)
