We want Mofo, Gone, Last Night on Earth, Please, Discothèque and Lemon! Not songs that have been played during most of the last 20-25 years
WOOT!

As most of you know, I really do not like the song Mofo. But when Bono sings it live, it sounds sexy, so I'm good with this list.

It's very interesting to see that only 3 people out of 40 don't want to see the return of The Fly or Bullet the Blue Sky.

I said neither because The Fly has had its day (several days, actually) in U2 setlists. I feel like I've seen it live plenty of times just by the concert footage. I desire to see something new.

And no to Bullet because I don't like it. :P

If that's your criteria, then, Beautiful Day, Streets, WOWY, One, New Year's Day, I Will Follow, SBS, Walk On, Mysterious Ways, UTEOTW, COBL, Vertigo, Stay, SIAMYCGOO, ISHFWILF, Elevation, have all had their day.

The Fly in one helluva more spectacular performance song than most of those.

Except all of those are also massive hits (minus UTEOTW and Stay). Elimination of those would irk audiences far more than The Fly.

That said, killing WOWY, One, IWF, SBS, MW, UTEOTW, and/or Stuck wouldn't bother me in the slightest either.

*sits back and imagines a concert free of UTEOTW* :)

For me, Bullet has been the highlight of every tour they've played it on, so I'd really like to see it back. It would work great toward the end of the main set, leading into at least a snippet (though preferably the entire) Cedars of Lebanon:
Crazy Tonight-->Bullet the Blue Sky-->Cedars of Lebanon-->Sunday Bloody Sunday

The Fly doesn't excite me quite as much, but I do still  really love it too. I think The Fly could work well thematically and sonically if it preceded Boots.

The Fly of course  8)

I actually voted for both. I love The Fly as you might have guessed, and I really like Bullet The Blue Sky aswell. I would really like to see Love And Peace Or Else played live again. That solo absolutley kills when The Edge plays it live. Either Love And Peace or Cedars Of Lebanon would be a great addition to the set-list. Cedars would be a great concert closer I think... maybe one for U2 to think about?

I love Love Peace or Else too!!! And I love the version of The Fly the way they sang it on Elevation with that slow part in the beginning.

I voted neither.

not because I don't like the songs, but because there are so many other songs that would fit in better.

I like the idea of replacing the entire "political" section of the show with something else. Goodbye SBS and Walk On. Keep Scarlet, add L&POE, Cedars, and Seconds.
