My vote goes to EBTTRT. I love the song but it's out of place in the set. I don't necessarily think they should drop it but it needs to be moved much later into the set and rotated out every few nights. I would replace it with Gone or Magnificent.

If they did that I think it would flow a bit better.:)

IWF with another early song from Boy-October-War, or as another rotating spot. Surrender preferably.

MW would make sense too with Discotheque.

ISHFWILF. Replaced with Love is Blindness, to close every second night (The Troubles to close the other night).

mysterious ways as heard it at pretty much every U2 concert I've ever attended, zzzzzzzzzz

Invisible ran it close like as it's just a crap cheesy type of song, but not heard it live hence my reasoning for mysterious ways.

With Or Without You. Absolutely embarrassing and cringe worthy listening to Bono try and sing this song now. It had its day, on the Joshua Tree, Lovetown and Zoo TV Tours it was great. Ever since it has been on a downward spiral. Awful. Just awful.

Replace it wit anything from Pop or Zooropa.

With or without you is a box check for sure.

UTEOTW or EBTTRT. As much as I love the songs, they (especially UTEOTW) have been done to death. Same with MW.

The Fly would be awesome in the screen after Invisible (yes, I'm defending that song), though they would have to change the intermission song.

So, Pride, WOWY and Steets are ok, even though they have been played a 100+ more times that UTEOTW, EBTTRT and MW?

Odd.

Personally I don't care for earlier versions of WOWY... I think it sounds great on this tour and every tour since Vertigo. It's also a crowd favorite, like MW, COBL, etc.

I'd definitely drop EBTTRT for Discotheque. They could leave the screen during the bridge.

Invisible live isn't that great, Mysterious Ways is getting boring; WOWY is better than it was on 360, but is still lacking, so it got my vote.

Well, I never get tired of Streets, but the difference is that those songs are expected to be heard by people. A lot of casual fans (unfortunately) don't know UTEOTW or even EBTTRT.

MW. It's just not a song I want to hear every night. Same thing with a close second EBTTRT.

Replace either with Discotheque and the show gets so much better
