PLEASE TRY TO BASE YOUR VOTE MORE ON THE LIVE PERFORMANCE OF THESE SONGS NOT THE ALBUM VERSION

Breathe, because the live version doesn't sound very good in honesty.

Larry's drum solo is awesome, but it doesn't translates well, it also doesn't help that the album version has 2 guitars.

I say Unknown Caller.  I like the song, but after 4 gigs of it I could have done without it.

The question is moot.  It seems U2 are rotating the songs from NLOTH and moving them around the set list.  This allows the band to play fewer than 7 new songs each show but not become predictable or rigid in their song selection.  As a fan attending a concert I would like to be suprised in which songs will be played that night and in what order.

That ain't going to happen.  Unknown Caller is a much more effective song live than SUC or F/BB could hope to be.

NLOTH is painful to listen to. The key is too high, and Bono wasn't in tune once in the three times I heard it live.

I am in the minority, but I love Breathe live.

Unknown Caller is a little painful, both because of the silly graphics and because nobody knows it so Bono can't get a sing along going.

Magnificent is great live.

MOS is great only when everyone is in tune. It was a mess during Chicago 2 but good during 1 and Toronto. Unfortunately, it's a stadium emptier and people just won't stay for it.

The best of the bunch? The Crazy dance mix! Wouldn't it be great to hear that seque into Mojo or Discotecque?

Normally I would say keep the disco out of a U2 show but I'll Go Crazy(Remix) into Mofo would sound great.

I don't want ANY of them gone but it'sd be a particularly CRUSHING blow to remove Unknown Caller, Moment of Surrender or NLOTH in my view!

I think all of those songs work well within the context of the show. I can't imagine leaving any of them out.

None. I'm glad that I was at a show where all 7 of them were played.  Now if you want to talk about older songs they could drop, well that's a different story.   :-X

I vote "None of the Above"   I enjoy all those songs!  But since they didn't play "Unknown Caller" in Charlottesville, I guess U2 did drop a new song from the setlist.
