Definitely "Unknown Caller" of the choices listed.  And if they start not playing "Magnificent" and yet continue playing "Get On Your Boots," that will be the biggest WTF ever.  I mean, they have slowly been dropping songs from NLOTH, yet that dog of a song is still getting played?  Really?

I voted for Crazy. Weird choice, I know.

I watched Letterman the week U2 was on in 2009 and they did a full on band version and I thought it was great. I really didn't care for the song that much after NLOTH came out, but after seeing it on the show, full band, I thought it was pretty good.

I really don't like the remix and all that, I prefer straight up full on band versions of songs.

I can't believe Magnificent was dropped, I wonder if it's temporary. Let the Greatest Hits Tour flames begin....

I wonder if EBTTRT is in because of the region. It may have been a bigger hit in Latin/South America than elsewhere, so it showed up in the setlist.

Hopefully Unknown Caller, the birds of Fez intro and the crowd interaction with the oh oh oh's!  , for me made it a strange choice to be binned so early. There was never a great crowd reaction to No Line or Magnificent or Breathe compared to Unknown Caller.
 The biggest reaction was for GOYB which although it is pretty poor effort it still managed to energise every show I was at on 360. I don't think it is always what is considered their best song from an album that makes an impact live, Bullet is a great example , never ever listen to it outside a show but everytime I have seen it live, I have loved it.

Magnificent will obviously be added as an option if it actually misses a few gigs, rather than hysterical overreaction to missing one.

i can't choose between the first 3 on the list. they each have their own merited claims to be rightfully put back on the playlist.

Apart from the fact I would have to say Magnificent (I hope thats just because its 3 shows in a row) No Line for me because i think its fantatstic live! Probably better than the album version IMHO  ;D

Had to vote for Unknown Caller. It's such a great song and I loved it live! Too bad it's so underrated...

I wanted all of them back, especially Unknown Caller & No Line On the Horizon.

However, I voted No Line on the Horizon just because they couldn't figure out how to end Unknown Caller.
