Like the thread.  Personally, I don't understand why so many fans dislike the 2000's work the band has done.  They're still very much U2... expanding, finding new directions, but keeping the great lyrics and beautiful touches of their songs.  In fact, I originally was disinterested in the 2000s albums (before listening to them) because I heard U2 fans bashing them.  Then I listened to Atomic Bomb and my jaw dropped.

In no particular order...

Elevation
Beautiful Day
Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own
Electrical Storm
Walk On
City of Blinding Lights
Vertigo (seriously, who doesn't love singing along?)
All Because of You
Yahweh
Iris
Honorable Mention... Stand Up Comedy

City of Blinding Lights
Cedarwood Road
Kite
Volcano
Magnificent
I'll Go Crazy If I Don't Go Crazy Tonight
Crumbs From Your Table
Breathe
The Troubles
Beautiful Day

Those top 3 are pretty much set.
4 and 5 could switch spots any minute now.
The last 5 could be completely different 6 months from now.

...and I'd also love to see an all-21st century show/tour. Yeah, it'll never happen, but can't stop me from dreaming.

Beautiful Day
Vertigo
Kite
Walk On
COBL
Crumbs From Your Table
Cedarwood Road
Breathe
Every Breaking Wave
Iris

I'd like to put "When I Look At The World" somewhere in there. Could also potentially swap Crumbs with Miracle Drug. I think once SOE is released there will have been enough 2010s songs to separate the two decades.

I believe the second half of Songs of Innocence is the easily the best work they've done since Pop.  Hopefully, Songs of Experience picks up the baton right there!

Kite
Magnificent
Every Breaking Wave
Iris
Raised by Wolves
Cedarwood Road
Sleep Like a Baby Tonight
This is Where You Can Reach Me Now
The Troubles
The Crystal Ballroom
