List your favorite U2 song for each letter of the alphabet.  Tip, if the song title begins with "The" the letter the song represents would be the second word in the title, so The Blackout for example would be a "B" song.

There's a bible verse,

Well, if that verse is true,
there's hope for me and you.

Some are obvious of course but good thread idea:

Always forever now
Bad
City of blinding lights (not a whole lot of "c" songs to choose from)
Drowning Man
EH-LEH-VAY-SHUN - Kidding - Electric Co
The Fly  (Fez a close second)
Gone
Hold me Thrill Me Kiss Me Kill Me (Hands that built America a close second)
I still haven't found what I'm looking for
J Swallo - their only "J" song unless you count their cover of Woodie Guthrie's "Jesus Christ"
Kite - their only K song
Lady with the spinning head
Mothers of the disappeared (tough choice!!!)
North and south of the river
Original of the species (best song on a bad album)
Pride
Q - There IS no Q!
Running to Stand Still (red flag day a close second)
A sort of homecoming
Two shots of happy, one shot of sad
Unforgettable Fire (sorry UTEOTW)
Vertigo
The Wanderer
Xanax and Wine - tough choice  8)
Your blue room
Zooropa

For the record there's a high chance I would have picked J Swallo even if there was another song starting with J. I'm more familiar with Fast Cars than Xanax and Wine though.
