Vote for the "Best of U2 Live"
« on: September 30, 2019, 08:58:44 AM »
All right, here we go...

The idea is to build a list of 25 songs as a "Best of U2 live", out of the tunes they have already played live.

Then we're gonna choose the best version of each song.

Please vote for up to 50 songs (you can vote for less).

The poll will run for 2 weeks. Results will appear when the votes are closed... Surprise !

I tried to build a chronological list but forgot the Passengers tracks, so they're at the bottom.
A dangerous idea that almost makes sense...

Will this a 4 or 5 CD boxset?

Or just a digital release?

Cool. Maybe having it run for 2 weeks wasn't a great idea, after all  ;D

I got carried away, thinking there would be some way of knowing when i had chosen 50. But there wasnt. Now i have chosen too many and Cant be arsed going back and counting them or deciding which ones to remove.
I think allowing 50 is a bit too many. 25 would be better

I picked too many, too. I didn't bother counting, I just went back and said "how brokenhearted would I REALLY be if An Cat Dubh didn't make the list?" etc. Viola, I got in under the limit.

50?  That's a lot.
And then a poll for each of the tracks that make it?
Okay, I'm in...

It's the two week wait that's making me tug at my collar.

Soloyan, how about 1 week? You can still edit the poll. The extra week will probably net you just one more vote.

Unfortunately, I cannot edit the time setting, just the visibility of results. But I'd like people to vote without being influenced by the results (previous voters often comment on results).

I can tell you this, though... so far we have :
-2 songs with 7 votes
-8 songs with 6 votes
-6 songs with 5 votes
-8 songs with 4 votes

Which is 24 songs. Set list is taking shape  ;)

YOU CAN SEE THE VOTES?

Well, I think you can at least end the voting early if you find days have gone by with no new votes :)

Absolutely. Will decide after the week-end. But I can tell you that the potential set list is sexy. Quite a few surprises.

I know, I'm such a tease  8)
