Which never-performed songs do you most want to hear on E+I?

With the tour coming soon I thought it'd be interesting to see which never-performed songs you guys would most like to hear performed on the E+I Tour. I have only included album tracks. You can select up to three. Leave a comment on which ones you picked.

My picks:
Drowning Man
Grace
Cedars of Lebanon

I wouldn't be surprised if Drowning Man actually got performed given its rehearsal on 360 and fairly regular snippets towards the end of the Joshua Tree Tour.

If Bono's able to pull it off, Heartland would be a dream live!

I think we just missed our chance at that one.

1. When I Look At The World
2. Some Days Are Better Than Others
3. The Playboy Mansion

I would have included Heartland as number three, but the fact that nothing from Pop ever gets performed has caused me to plug Playboy Mansion into that spot.

I have my doubts that Bono can conjure up the vocal ability to pull off Drowning Man as well as I want it, but I still want it.
Acrobat would be a dream.
I want "When I Look At the World" for sure.  The one song I heard when listening to ATYCLB all the way through, that made my jaw drop and instantly wonder "Why haven't I heard of this song before?"  I also think it may fit the tour well, with the experience lyrics/theme and innocence vibe.  Maybe as an interlude, or just a snippet.

1) 80ies: 4th of July. May be a nice transition song where Bono can rest his voice and change clothing or accessories.
2) 90ies: Acrobat, obviously.
3) 21st: SLABAT. Would also like to hear TIWYCRMN, but I feel that the crowd would not be into that.

Went with Drowning Man, Acrobat (of course) and Fez. Surprised so few people have gone for Fez given the love of the more experimental stuff. When I Look At The World and Some Days would be awesome too. But, we will probably get Stuck In A Moment.

Can I vote 3 times for "Like A Song"?  I know it was played once, however I'm writing it in because only a few hundred heard it.

Love that one.  Doubt we'll ever hear it again outside of the album. 

I don't think they will play any of these from the list unfortunately.

Fascinating. I've run this poll both here and at TalkU2 and the top 3 there are the same as here: Acrobat, Drowning Man, and Sleep Like A Baby Tonight.

Noticed that '4th of July' is on the list, but I'm pretty sure that I have a live version from 1985 kicking around on a disc somewhere...  It's from a performance in Europe and I believe that it's the opening to the show...:-)
