10 U2 songs
« on: March 08, 2019, 02:28:50 PM »
Can we find 10 U2 songs that we can all be enthusiastic about?

- Does not need to be an album release. We can also accept semi-U2 songs like Passengers, solo or Bedge work, etc.

- We do not need to agree on the specific version. If everybody has SOME VERSION of Streets they can muster some enthusiasm for, then Streets it is. If you loathe the album version and love Tempe, and someone else thinks Boston is the only thing that ever mattered, we're good.

- It doesn't have to be in your top 10. Do you feel enthusiastic about the song? We're good.

- Veto if you aren't enthused. You will be hated. Do it anyway. Note: I already pre-emptively hate you all, so that's out of the way.

Maybe we should just start by vetoing songs off TJT, AB, and Pop and seeing what's left after the dust settles.

I like this performance.

I'm not a big fan of the song, but in the interests of self-preservation I don't think I should veto the song, at least not yet.

To get as few as ten songs we might have to be brutal in the use of our veto power.

I love the male voice choir at the end of this version.  It's a beautiful moment.

Never performed live. May it find a place on this list.

Good song and one of the best on a patchy U2 album.  I feel it pointed the way to the development of their sound, which culminated on TUF album.

I veto the song.

I'm issuing a fatwa against TD...  ;D

Another great song from the sidelines. Hope it makes it.

Absolutely incredible - an Adam Clayton solo.

I veto this one.

I should mention that I will veto Cedars of Lebanon.

Specific performance doesn't matter for the purpose of this thread, but damnnnnnn. This is the version. I've seen this before but it's been a while. They were on fire. Great audience too.

People, if you head down the hall and take a left, you can pick up some pitchforks and torches.
