I would definitely add "Moment of Surrender".  It's a gorgeous slow builder.

I'd find it hard to include in a top-50 list any post-Pop songs other than maybe Stateless, TGBHF, SLABT, Being Born, The Troubles, and (maybe if I'm feeling really generous) MOS.

That's five out of fifty, or 10%. Sounds about right.

PS - If Never Let Me God would be allowed, I'd add that too.

I totally agree with this. Pretty much the same songs I would include and MOS would be last of them. Never Let Me Go is amazing - a forgotten song unfortunately!

Never Let me Go is a fantastic song....the kind of stuff u2 do brilliantly. I know it isn't technically u2 but...

Sadly they seem to prefer the kind of sh**e they are awful at these days like Elevation et al.

Excellent. We'll schedule this for October 30th 2020 then.

Should we have some posters with the lyrics printed?
