U2 unplugged
« on: March 22, 2021, 06:59:50 PM »
I know - I know - U2 unplugged sounds about as exciting as watching paint dry. BUT

Let's make a KICK-ASS U2 unplugged nevertheless. Dig through the archives, figure out ten songs that would rock the world of a non-u2 audience. Without electricity.

Stay
Staring at the Sun
Wild Honey
White as Snow
Running to stand Still
The First Time
Every Breaking Wave
Summer Rain
Wake up dead Man
The Wanderer


He was in the world, and the world was made by Him, and the world knew Him not.

John 1:10

Not sure I could handle Bono being Elton John for 10 songs. Every Breaking Wave was bad enough.

Although enjoyed 'Songs of Acoustic'.

I can't really unite kick ass with that amount of unplugged in my mind! :) 

Sunday Bloody Sunday
Running To Stand Still
Van Diemen's Land
Stay (Faraway, So Close)
Staring At The Sun
Stuck In A Moment You Can't Get Out Of
Vertijo 
White As Snow
Every Breaking Wave
The Showman (Little More Better)
We Get To Carry Each Other

Elevation
Mofo
Discotheque
Lemon
Slug
Miami
Get on Your Boots
You're the Best Thing About Me
Where the Streets Have No Name
Bullet the Blue Sky

Ok, a couple of these could actually turn out pretty cool.

not sure about some of the choices you have, but i think you've got the right idea.  Everyone else has picked songs that could obviously be done acoustically, but you've got some selections that the band would have to get innovative to find a way to play differently.

Yup. I've tried a few of them, actually. I could not really do them justice but there's potential : MOFO, Discothèque, Lemon, Bullet...

Slug is a great idea.
A dangerous idea that almost makes sense...
