It depends.

I would ask what are their musical tastes and then choose a song that I think suits them.

Whereas if it was to shut up a hater, Acrobat is always the song to go.

Interesting. I don't disagree, but what's your rationale?

Serious question: why does it matter if someone doesn't like U2?

If I'n going to tell 'em to listen to one song only, I'm gonna point 'em at U2's best song - "Stay."

I think on that song there's everything you wouldn't expect from U2 (in the most positive way).

It would serve as a valid encouragement to not judge a band only from the stereotyped radio songs.

What would it be? This person has never listened to u2 and doesn't know anything about them. You get to recommend one song.

If I told someone to listen to one song only I would be a horrible person.

Depends who it is. Assuming I do not know this person's music taste: I would recommend Red Hill Mining Town to an older person and Do You Feel Loved to a younger person.

If I could have them listen to two songs I would have either person hear both, one after the other. I like to let people new to U2's music know how different they can sound right off the bat.

El-e-va-shun!

Only one song...man, that's tough. I think it would depend on that person's personality. Possibly WOWY. Just because it's so different.

Hmm not a bad shout that....think i would be tempted to go with UTEOTW
I'd second UTEOTW

I would put on lemon and only tell it is u2 afterwards. They probably won't believe me and want to hear more to prove it...
