Stuck, which I've had the misfortune of hearing live 3 times. This is my least favorite U2 song.

Pride, which I'm just plain sick of. They were kind enough not to play it at the last concert I went to.

Vertigo, which I've heard live 4 times, at 3 concerts. Yep, I was at one of the Vertigo concerts where they played it AGAIN as part of the encore. Hey, U2: Of all the songs in your catalog, you're gonna bust THAT one out twice?

Runners up:

New Year's Day, which I'm sick of.
WOWY, which is my favorite U2 song. Bono just can't/doesn't sing it right anymore.

I also hate Unknown Caller, but they spared me the torture at the 360 concert I went to.

That's an interesting selection.

I would like to suggest replacements for the three that have to go.

01. Sunday Bloody Sunday Replace it with ---> Even Better Than The Real Thing
02. Pride ---> Replace it with The Fly
03. I still haven't find what I'm looking for* ---> Discotheque

I've been very fair! All the three are singles replaced by other singles!

*The title says it all, just give up on this one guys, do you really think that after 23 years of the release of this single you are going to find it? I know U2 songs are often about hope, but this is getting ridiculous.

1. Your Blue Room- not working with the claw, not to mention everybody sitting down
2. In A Little While- just plain boring after seeing the Rose Bowl DVD. meant to fill space... or contact space as seen on the DVD
3. Sunday Bloody Sunday- despite the incredible performance I saw of it, its true meaning is now over with, it's not a protest song anymore, or it doesn't need to be at least

2. Anything acoustic
3. GOYB

Ultraviolet has been stunning on this tour, and he can still perform UTEOTW pretty damn well too. Ultraviolet aside, most of the song off AB aren't that hard to sing.

Smee said "pre AB" ;) Bono talks his way through UTEOTW and Ultraviolet.

Woops, I'll put that error down to tiredness :p Most of AB has an almost spoken tone to it (can't remember the musical term for that, begins with "r" I think!)

I know a lot of fans are tired of WOWY and I can understand why (even though I still like it), but wouldn't it be awesome if the band replaced it with Love Is Blindness on the upcoming legs of the tour?
