looks like Mofo and Exit are neck and neck

with Red Hill Mining Town and Kite not too far behind...

now Drowning Man is making a come back.  I remember reading that on the 360 tour they practiced it but couldn't fit it in because it seemed like too much of a downer song to come back from.  Perhaps with this new album which is their "blue period," will better fit with the song.

The more I see the votes increase for these songs, the more I keep hoping to hear all of them instead of the old, over-played hits (Beautiful Day, One, With or Without You) which the band feels they have to play and probably will every show. 

I guess I'm deluding myself that they will read this poll and really mix up the set list this tour since they claim they want to do something different.

At the same time, I realize that if people have never seen U2 live and go to the show, they will want to hear the hits.  I would think they'd also appreciate the deep album cuts too since U2 is one of the greatest bands of all time.  Wouldn't most concert goers of the band recognize the non-released-as-a-single tracks too?
