I like snippets (especially those rare times U2 snippets their own songs) but entire covers annoy me. I'm there as a U2 fan wanting to hear U2 music. They have 12 albums full of songs I would love to hear and only 24 or so songs to play at each concert. To sacrifice the possibility of hearing a U2 rarity for a cover song just would irritate me.

^THIS. I love snippets. It's a form of art that shows Bono is aware of the relevancy of other artists besides himself. It's like we're all a part of the great group consciousness of a music experience. I LOVE IT.

I'd love for them to play Tower of Song - I really loved the band arrangement of the version they did with LC in "I'm Your Man" and would love to hear a version with Bono singing the whole song (even though it'd never live up to the great man's vocals!).

Tower of Song is one exception I'd make to a complete cover song being played.

I think U2 sometimes does a poor job covering some songs sometimes (like when they did Instant Karma). Much prefer people covering U2's music.

Did a really good job though performing Dancing Queen with ABBA. I'm really just thinking of random live performances right now though.

Bryan Adams - "Here I Am"

If we count Passengers as a cover song, I'll take "Slug" over anything else.

And Stand By Me sounds like a great idea  ;D

I was just thinking that I wouldnt mind an Edge Karaoke slot like they did on PopMart. It would be neat to see/hear Edge singing again.
