Hmmm...   So many good ones, it's tough to narrow it down to three.  I'll say:

"Lady With the Spinning Head"
"Luminous Times"
"Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me"

There's certainly a very, very solid 12-song LP that could be conjured from U2 songs not on U2 albums.

U2 have certainly released an albums worth of songs which have not been on official U2 albums. Surprised they haven't released an Oasis esq Masterplan type album.

My album would be -

HMTMKMKM
Window in the Sky
Electrical Storm
Hands that built America
The Ground beneath her feet
Ordinary Love
Lady with the Spinning Head
Slug
Your blue Room
Miss Sarajevo
Satellite of love

Top 3 would vary depending on my mood.

ground beneath her feet is on studio album released on all that you cant leave behind ,australian . ;)

IMHO, that doesn’t count.

My 3 are:

Just remembered 'Ground' was on my ATYCLB CD as well. So not sure it should be in my new CD.

Also just remembered that 'Fast Cars', which I like,  was on my HTDAAB CD. Although that was not included.

Luminous Times, Electrical Storm, Love Comes Tumbling
I think Winter and Soon are strong contenders, too.

1. "Mercy" (original HTDAAB-era version)

2. "Lady with the Spinning Head"

3. (tie for now because too hard to choose) "Luminous Times (Hold on to Love)"/"Walk to the Water"/"Love Comes Tumbling"

And "Winter" (Linear version) is not very far behind . . . also, I count Passengers as officially released, as I do "best of" albums (even if, in the latter case, they're new songs designed to sell the album to those who wouldn't otherwise purchase it) . . .
