I remember watching this live, I sincerely hope for their own sake that U2 weren't watching that! Reckon I could have got all of them to be honest.

About what I would expect from that cross section of people.

U2 have never really had a massive single that has really burned into Joe Publics mind so people knowing lots of their singles would never really be likely in my view.

That isn't a bad thing either, I just wish they would stop trying to get one!

i would agree with alot of that apart from one and with or without you...  u2 for me never put their best stuff out as a single..even i cringe when i hear all because of you and get on those horrible boots
add to that 4 people who are not u2 fans no surprise to be fair the other 4 made up for the first group :)

I saw a quiz when some woman could only get 3 or 4 Beatles songs. Amazingly weird

Today the finalists had "name any track from The Joshua Tree".
They went with "Where the Streets Have No Name" which scored just 11!
They got two pointless answers and won the money - Running To Standstill and Red Hill Mining Town.
My choices were Exit, Mothers of the Disappeared and Trip Through Your Wires all of which were pointless.
The missus said "If we were on there today I'd say YES! We've won!" when that came up.

I had a feeling The Joshua Tree would be one of the options when I first saw the category! Glad the guy came up with some decent answers - though was Streets really the most obscure track he could think of to make up the numbers?!
