What? Is there never any love for Miss Sarajevo?

It went up in my estimation when I saw Bono and Edge perform it at the Clinton Foundation.

But it doesn't come anywhere near to a live version of Breathe or the supersonic soundscaping of Promenade.

Ultraviolet and Promenade.

So, TD, are you including all tracks from Original Soundtracks or will Miss Sarajevo be the only one? And, will any b-sides or soundtrack songs be in the tournament, or will it just be album cuts?

Wow, Promenade may kick out Breathe.

Didn't see that coming.

Just the bone fide original album tracks + I was thinking Miss Sarajevo, YBR, Windows, Electrical, Sweetest Thing and Batman.

Awe, I would have probably put Slug over a lot of tracks if included.

Now you mention it, yes.  How could I have overlooked that one.

Ultraviolet and One Tree Hill, with Breathe closely in third.

Miss Sarajevo and Hawkmoon 269. Anytime, over basically anything but Gone.

But it hurts for The Ocean. 0 votes.

Perhaps we should have an ultimate non-studio album track u2 song tournament since we all know that 'Streets' will win.

It'd be interesting to see which b-side/soundtrack/unreleased song/etc. is the favorite among fans.

But this is called the 'Ultimate U2 Song Tournament', not the 'Crappy-Couldn't-Make-An-album-Release-Or-Single-Release-U2-Song Tournament.'
