I forgot to add "One Tree Hill".  Also, I meant Zoo Station obviously, not Zooropa.

I think there are a lot of great set lists here, but I think I'd really just love them to play a whole album from start to finish with my choices (in order)

1. October
2. Boy
3. Pop
4. Zooropa

Of course they all go over 10 songs, but who cares?  If I was going to be more song specific, I'd end up choosing a lot of tracks from the 90's releases, but it's quite tough to just pick 10, and I like the idea of just picking an album.

October appeals because I think it is the most underrated U2 album just because it is always at the bottom of the list.  I hardly think it qualifies to be towards the top either, but it does have a lot of tracks that are better than people give them credit for.
