Now That's What I Call U2!
« on: October 24, 2017, 08:10:06 AM »
Do you remember the "Now That's What I Call Music" compilation albums?

I think it may have been a UK thing - but for those from elsewhere in the world who may not have heard of it - take a look here.........

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Now_That%27s_What_I_Call_Music!

I thought it might be fun for us to create this forums very own "album" - Now That's What I Call U2!

Idea is for it to work like this....

People nominate 1 U2 track from each of the decades - The 80's, the 90's, the 00's and the 10's.

So for example:

An Cat Dubh
Mofo
Stateless
Sleep Like a Baby Tonight

Then after a couple of weeks of nominating I will create a series of polls where we will vote and whittle the tracks down to a list of 15 "essential" U2 tracks that will become this forums "album" NOW THAT'S WHAT I CALL U2!"....

Make sense?

Sound like a good idea?

Sadly NOW is still going, at least here in the U.S. and they're probably up to 500 by now.

All I Want Is You
Until The End of The World
City of Blinding Lights
You're The Best Thing About Me (Every Breaking Wave was technically 00's).
One love, One blood, One life;
You got to do what you should.
One life; With each other
Sisters, Brothers
One life; But we're not the same
We get to carry each other, Carry each other

Hawkmoon (even tho Streets is my fav, Hawkmoon deserves a spot here)
The Fly
Mofo
The Troubles

Was going to go with Hawkmoon, but in true 'Now' spirit, I thought it was hits only - so stuck with hits nominations!

You're probably right about it should be hits only...but to ME, Hawkmoon is a hit!
