What will be the SOI Tour's "Mercy"????
« on: October 16, 2014, 11:56:13 AM »
They listen....They have people who troll the boards. So, Mercy came about after a fan outcry in my opinion. So with that said....What will the next Tour's "Mercy" be? I'd like to hear:

1) Blow Your House Down
2) Love You Like Mad

These are always tough because parts of these are drawn into actual released songs. Always a fun thing to think about though. I do think we're going to hear some songs we haven't in a very long time.

Yeah, Acrobat is the song everyone wants to hear. I'd like to see Disappearing Act too.

To be fair, I'm not sure Mercy really was in reaction to fan pressure. My memory is that while the song was still popular, Mercy wasn't really on anyone's minds back in 2010, five years after the leak. It's much more likely to have been the fact that they were working on it *at that moment* with Danger Mouse as a candidate for the next album, hence why it appeared at the same time as North Star, Glastonbury, Every Breaking Wave and Stingray.

So a 'Mercy' equivalent wouldn't be something like Blow Your House Down but rather something from SoE. Which is plausible!

Acrobat is probaby my favorite U2 song, really sacred to me. Bono in some interviews said it was his favorite from the album.

I'd go for Acrobat too, it's one of those songs you wonder why they never played.

though loving Crystal ballroom too.

Didn't Willie Williams say in his diary on U2's website that he suggested the band play it?

Clearly Willie is our close ally.
