Let me revise my list a bit, to (1) conform with the no covers rule, and (2) a recent revelation for me

Beautiful Day
Stuck In A Moment You Can't Get Out Of (Album version)
Falling At Your Feet
Cedars Of Lebanon
Love And Peace Or Else
In A Little While
Fast Cars
Fez - Being Born
City of Blinding Lights
Breathe
The Ground Beneath Her Feet
Flower Child
New York
Stateless
Vertigo
Rise Above 1 - Feat. Reeve Carney
Window In The Skies
No Line On the Horizon (Original Mix)

I know "Flower Child" is well known to a lot of fans—I had completely forgotten I had it as part of the Unreleased fan CD. But it wasn't until the re-release of ATYCLB that I revisited it. It's great! It has a loose vibe that hasn't been heard on a U2 album since, and has a perfect subtlety to it that didn't need any more tinkering. At the very least, this would have been a better album track than "Peace On Earth". In retrospect, IMHO it has aged much, much better than the song it was overwrought into: "Walk On"
