“Stay (Faraway, So Close!)” was nominated in the category Best Original Song at the 51st Golden Globe Awards. In 2005, Bono said “Stay (Faraway, So Close!)” was “perhaps the greatest U2 song”, saying it has the “most extraordinary contour of a melody. It’s really quite sophisticated. The lyric never misses”, and noting that they had “never turned ‘Stay’ into the single it deserved to be.” He named it as one of his two favourite U2 songs, along with “Please”. The Edge called it “the stand-out track on the record.” Wenders described it as one of his favourite U2 songs.
