SPOILER - Poll - Songs to drop from the set list
« on: September 10, 2009, 07:01:03 AM »
I'm in favour of edgier set lists from U2 when they play live. The crowd pleaser may please the crowd but the crowd need to be challenged too.

Which of the usual 'classics' would you like to see dropped?

Pride is a great song, but long overdue for a vacation.

Pride and One stand out immediately. Streets gets a bye because it's Streets, and SBS always rocks. I personally think COBL should be played more sparingly; it's a good song but not worthy of being in every show imo. Especially since it was in every show in the last tour.

None of the above- I think every one of them should be kept. :)

Seriously, who even thought about dropping Streets, don't tell me the show would be better with Streets out of the setlist, it would actually be a major hole in the set.  Like an interrupted climax.

Well I'd ditch SBS, Pride, WOWY and NYD too... I voted SBS, they've written better pacifist songs.

Never drop Streets, but jeez, give the others a rest. This isn't a PBS special. It's a gig for people who avidly follow the band and some newbies. You don't have to reintroduce yourselves each night.

I'm gonna go with Unforgettable Fire.  I know it wasn't played for a while before this tour, but that song has not aged well.  I'm actually kind of not really looking forward to it.

eat humble pie. I say rotate out Pride, SBS, WOWY, Still Haven't Found, and play 1 or 2 of those 4 instead of 4 out of 4 every night.

Drop With or Without You.....I never thought I'd say that!
Bono sounds tired of singing it and I did not like how the band played it at Wembley in August.
Give WOWY a rest.
They should not drop Streets because it is one of the highlights of the live show

Ugh. I have no problem with Drowning Man, but I think it's be a dreadful closer, whereas MoS was MADE to be a closer...

I only said that because they said they don't like playing DM so early for the mood it makes.
