Man, I wish U2 still had the cajones to write and perform songs like Gone and Acrobat.

I saw Radiohead last night, so I am in a bit of a cranky mood, U2-fandom-wise.

How was the Radiohead gig?

Let me rephrase that - how good was the Radiohead gig?

It was mindblowing. They are so good live it's ridiculous. They played a bunch of stuff from OKC (Let Down, Exit Music) that I didn't expect. They also did an unplanned 3rd encore and busted out Fake Plastic Trees.

They're in a league all their own.

Shouldn't list 4 tracks from the same album. All AB's tunes voted.

I think the songs were randomized.

I can't believe Gone will be out and not Acrobat.

Every group from the start of the tournament has been created randomly.

Mr Galt used the shuffle on his i-pod and i used a random number generator on google.

Well, Acrobat is good but I think it really is helped here by the fact that it has never been played live. Sonically, Gone is more interesting and is one of the strongest songs in the entire U2 catalogue. Acrobat doesn't crack the top 10 on AB alone in my opinion.

To each their own. Acrobat may be my favorite U2 song, but it has always been a toss-up between that and The Fly.
