I was tempted to do this last as a "favourite" batch, but I'm removing my personal opinion from it and picking the ones I think people should hear if they could only hear one song from each album. And that changes things quite a bit for me, if that makes any sense. Particularly with the earlier albums. :D

The Electric Co.

Sunday Bloody Sunday
Bad
Where the Streets Have No Name

Cool Post idea....Here we go!

1. Out of Control
2. Gloria
3. Surrender
4. A Sort of Homecoming
5. Bad (Wide Awake in America) - LOL - Still counts no?
6. Streets
7. Until the end of the World (this choice was hard)
8. Zooropa (skip the 90 seconds of nonsense in the beginning)
9. Last Night on Earth
10. Beautiful Day
11. City of Blinding Lights
12. Magnficent

Pretty predictable but just  being honest.  I'd love to burn a 2nd cd with Stay, Gone, TUF, An Cat Dubh, Two Hearts, etc. on it and hide it from the OP.  Quick someone give me a distraction....

6. Angel Of Harlem
7. The Fly

These aren't necessarily my favorites, but I think they sum up the sound of their respective albums.

Whoops! I forgot Rattle & Hum.  I'd have some DJ do a Mashup mix of "Angel of Harlem" and "Heartland".  I refuse to just choose one! REFUSE!

Great choices. I almost went with these too, but chose mine after much agonising thought.

Thanks.. yeah it was tough for me too.

Running to Stand Still was close with Mothers, Streets and WOWY.

Fez was an easy choice though.

1) Out Of Control
2) Tomorrow
3) Two Hearts Beat As One
4) One Tree Hill
5) Silver And Gold (R&H version)
6) The Fly
7) Babyface
8) United Colours Of Plutonium
9) Discotheque
10) Elevation
11) Fast Cars
12) No Line On the Horizon

This is not a best of comp, but instead, I've tried to build an arc of suspense with this playlist. This is just one possible mix as there are many more songs. None of those mixes can be definitive, but this one surely rocks out.

The "90 seconds of nonsense" at the beginning of Zooropa is, to me, one of the most important parts of Zooropa's mood and message. It's incredibly disorienting and menacing. I consider it as vital to the song as Streets' long intro.
