RED HILL MINING TOWN
EXIT

This +1

One Tree Hill is third place for me.  I'm surprised so many have chosen Streets and WOWY since U2 plays those all the time.  I guess I'd pick those if I hadn't ever heard them live.

I would pick Streets even if I'd heard it a million times...but, that's just me.

Spotlight on the Edge, he could do a super Running to stand still.
And the B man would have to play harmonica again, won't he?

Exit of course. What a belter that could be. And I voted OTH as the 2nd favourite of the tracks I've never seen live.

Apart from the usual big three, I'd love to hear them whack out Exit and In God's Country.

i'd LOVE LOVE LOVE for them to drop ISHF and WOWY in favor of RTSS and AIWIY. I know AIWIY isnt JT but it fits the WOWY mold and it's not played to death. ISHF just needs to go away in favor of at least a JT deep cut.

and yea i wouldn't even mind an Edge RTSS. i'd really like the spotlight to be on Edge singing a song. RTSS or any other "Bono" song, i.e. not necessarily Numb, Seconds, Van Diemen's Land.

Yes...I think Edge could do RHMT...anybody else agree?

Tough vocals, very dependant on 'passionate' delivery. Unless it's completely rearranged I think it could be real disaster.

Which reminds me: Spring Hill mining disaster...

Red Hill Mining Town and Exit.

I love Running to Stand Still as well.    I know TTYW doesn't get a lot of love here, but I would love to hear it again.
