12 song CD...
« on: January 22, 2009, 10:46:43 PM »
Ok. Let's say you have a friend who has never heard a U2 song. You're gonna make them a CD with 12 songs on it. These 12 songs must be able to easily make them an instant U2 fan.
Note: This is not a U2 greatest hits CD.
What 12 songs do you put on your friends CD?? Here's mine:
1. Bad (Live)
2. Two Hearts Beat As One
3. The Fly
4. Love And Peace Or Else
5. Bullet The Blue Sky
6. One Tree Hill
7. So Cruel
8. Stay
9. City Of Blinding Lights
10. An Cat Dubh/ Into The Heart
11. Surrender
12. All I Want Is You

i loved these songs on first listen

1. city of blinding lights
2. when i look at the world
3. sweetest thing
4. walk on
5. beautiful day
6. with or without you
7. new years day

10. desire
11. mysterious ways
12. all i want is you

it should probably be taken into account what the hopeful fan is like or in to.

It's YOUR friend, and YOUR CD...They will hopefully be "in-to" whatever songs you choose to put on their CD.
