Create Your Ultimate U2 Double Album!
« on: September 12, 2018, 05:17:54 AM »
Fairly simple concept - create your ultimate U2 double album!

The only rule is you are only allowed to use your top two favourite songs from each of U2's 14 studio albums across two discs.

You can also put them into an order of your choice which would create a type of theme for each album if you would like as well  ;)

Here's mine:

Disc 1
1. Where The Streets Have No Name
2. Magnificent
3. I Will Follow
4. Gloria
5. Cedarwood Road
6. Pride (In The Name Of Love)
7. Stay (Faraway, So Close!)
8. One
9. Miracle Drug
10. Red Flag Day
11. Like A Song...
12. Angel Of Harlem
13. If You Wear That Velvet Dress
14. The Ground Beneath Her Feet

Disc 2
1. Zooropa
2. The Fly
3. New Year's Day
4. Tomorrow
5. Twilight
6. Kite
7. Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own
8. Get Out Of Your Own Way
9. Stand Up Comedy
10. Last Night On Earth
11. Volcano
12. The Unforgettable Fire
13. With Or Without You
14. All I Want Is You

Tough to do.  Especially since, based on the rules, I have a couple of songs that connect directly into other songs, (Disc 1 Boy song, and Disc 2 SOE song), so if I were to put it together, it would be a rough transition.  Also, my Disc 1 is a little ballad heavy, but hey, those are my favourite songs.  Anyways, here's my double album.


Disc 1:
1.  Beautiful Day
2.  Gloria
3.  I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For
4.  Every Breaking Wave
5.  Stay (Faraway, So Close!)
6.  I'll Go Crazy If I Don't Go Crazy Tonight
7.  Into The Heart
8.  Bad
9.  Original Of The Species
10.  Ultraviolet (Light My Way)
11.  Love Is Bigger Than Anything In It's Way
12.  Gone
13.  All I Want Is You
14.  40

Disc 2:
1.  Zooropa
2.  Sunday Bloody Sunday
3.  With Or Without You
4.  Moment Of Surrender
5.  Last Night On Earth
6.  The Fly
7.  City Of Blinding Lights
8.  Song For Someone
9.  The Unforgettable Fire
10.  Get Out Of Your Own Way
11.  I Will Follow
12.  I Fall Down
13.  Heartland
14.  Walk On

This is a hard one. You didnt mention anything about the non album songs so I've put my favorites in. As a result I dropped. Some songs from October and songs of innocent that I don't realy like.

Disc one has a more easy set and set 2 starts of with a party mode.

But doing this I've realised that it has to become a 3 disc thing because lots of great songs are left behind...

Disc one :

1 : where the streets have no name
2 : beautifull day
3 : red flag day
4 : I will follow
5 : gloria
6 : Sunday bloody sunday
7 : pride
8 : starring at the sun
9 : one
10 : magnificent
11 : sweetest thing
12 : song for someone
13 : bad (wide awake in America)
14 : all I want is you

Disc 2

1 : zooropa
2 : even better then the real thing
3 : lemon
4 : hold. Me thrill me kiss me kill me
5 : vertigo
6 : elevation
7 : blackout
8 : last night on earth
9 : City of blinding lights
10 : out of controle
11 : new years day
12 : unforgettable fire
13 : with or Without you
14 : heartland

Secret bonus track : ordinary love
