Which would you drop from the list and what would you replace it with?

I'm saying mysterious ways, even though I love that song. I don't want to see it completely dropped, but played sparingly, like desire. I think discotheque would be cool in that spot

I'd drop Mysterious Ways and replace it with Discotheque or give Crystal Ballroom a permanent position in that slot.

Invisible. I like it, but it doesn't really serve a purpose. I'd rather see Streets move into the opening slot and then see something different (like Discotheque, TIWYCRMN, etc.) in the encore.

EBTTRT.

You could put any one of the more upbeat Pop or AB tracks in its place. I'm keeping Mysterious Ways solely because it's still fantastic live and because the crowd always gets into it. I don't know another U2 song that makes the fans all dance like they do to it.

Yes, and yes. Fine points. Keep M-Ways, lose Real Thing. Keep either Desire or Angel, not both.

Boom Cha!

But that'll ruin the theme! Everyone would be so confused.

Wowy! Apparently Bono and the rest of the band can live quite happily with this conundrum, for probably close to 30 years now.

WOWY needs to be retired.

Within the confines of the show I&E is going for:

Not I Will Follow - it's the bridge between the opening rockers and Iris. I can't think of a song that would make sense being played inside the screen after intermission other than Invisible. (Let's assume that the band needs the break the intermission provides and that they can't just scrap doing a song and a half up there.) EBTTRT lends itself well to having the band shift from the catwalk to the e-stage mid-song. And from where I was standing, the band looked far too happy playing Mysterious Ways for me to cut it.

Truth be told, I was never the biggest fan of WOWY live to begin with. Walk On did a wonderful job closing the main set on 360, I'd give it the position again.

I'm not saying they should but if they were to drop WOWY, Bad should become a setlist staple. I think the Fly would be a perfect swap for Invisible, you would end up with The Fly, EBTTRT and MW ala Zoo TV.

I would vote for Vertigo if it was listed. Why not do 3 early songs in a row instead?
