With Songs of Experience delayed and reworked twice, once due to Trump and a second time due to Bono's health, the band decided the album needed a new title to reflect their political and personal journey. Songs of Obamacare kills two birds with one stone, covering the band's reactions to the politics of America, and Bono's struggles to get decent, affordable healthcare as an immigrant.

Discuss the track list here!
The Edge: “[Eno] would love to see us making albums a bit more like [Zooropa]. Where we go, ‘You know what? We’re not going to second-guess any of this. Let’s just go for it.’”

U2 Fans: We'd all love to see that, Edge.

Love it!  How about "The Miracle (that never materialized) of Joey Biden"....how he almost saved us from this dystopian nightmare that is our current lives, but alas, did not.

Oh I can see this going off the rails, but I'll play along:

1. Death Panel
2. Medicaid from your table
3. Cover me
4. The mandate
5. Pre-existing
6. No line on the EKG
7. The miracle
8. Wake up dead man
9. So cruel
10. Heart rate 269
--------
Fuck the coronavirus!

Reworking old songs and lyrics will work too. Covers of other bands.

Crumbs From Trump Tower has a nice ring to it.
Trying To Throw Your Arms Around A Tree (and a woman needs Obamacare, like Bono needs a bicycle...)

The Anaesthetic Blackout

Adam solo rendition - because he's the only one who has a home in Britian: (The Miracle of) Nye Bevan

Exit

Oxygen, blood, saline through your wires
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

I wanted to check out the liner notes and album artwork, but I have to buy it to see what’s in it.
