I can't believe this is it's own topic, but when something inaccurate is posted, I must reply.  According to u2gigs.com, on the Vertigo tour only, there was played:

· Beautiful Day (132 times played)
· Elevation (132 times played)
· Stuck In A Moment You Can't Get Out Of (35 times played)
· Walk On (11 times played)
· Kite (8 times played)
· In A Little While (2 times played)

· One (132 times played)
· The Fly (90 times played)
· Zoo Station (70 times played)
· Mysterious Ways (67 times played)
· Until The End Of The World (41 times played)
· Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses (16 times played)
· Love Is Blindness (1 time played)

The totals are: 320 times an ATYCLB song was played, and 417 times an AB song was played.
We could also say that 7 different AB songs were played and 6 different ATYCLB songs were played.

And so on and so on.  Clearly, AB songs have more staying power given that they were about 15 years old during the Vertigo Tour, while the ATYCLB songs were closing in on being 5 years old.

Yes, AB is a better album than ATYCLB.

Those are a lot of songs for the two albums.  I bet those are the top two most played U2 albums on that tour (other than HTDAAB which is the album they are promoting).

How many times were POP songs actually played?

I guess this just reinforces the notion of how highly the band consider ATYCLB and its status as U2's third masterpiece.

Cheers,

I have an idea for a new drinking game. Every time Jick states an opinion as fact (I'll use the acronym "OAF"), we all take a drink. Could be a nice Friday.

So, here's to the first OAF !
