Wow, that was tough. I am surprised One is leading here. I went with WOWY though it was a difficult choice for me. One is just too powerful a song to me.

I can't vote.  I love these songs too much live

I know.  It is my belief that a U2 show is not a U2 show without With or Without You and One in the set but I voted for One SOLELY on the fact that WOWY is higher on my favorite songs list

I love them both and would REALLY miss either in my show. But for me, while I recognise that objectively, One is a better song, I personally prefer WOWY. So One would have to go!

I'd be pi**ed if they weren't played at my show

Both great songs, ad both songs that are concert-staples, so it's a tough pick, but I choose One, only because i like WOWY a little better as a live performance.
WOWY hasnt gotten quite as much concert play as One either.

I'd rather them leave out One. I enjoy both greatly, and though One is the superior song lyrically, as Ledbetter said WOWY is the better live performance. It just soars. :)

WOWY. I didn't really like Bono's performance of it at my 360 concert.

I love both songs, but to me One is the better song, and I like One more.

So bye bye WOWY.

I could live with One being canned assuming Bono stops hanging off the steering wheel!  ;D

I LOVE the recorded versions, but Bono cant sing them as well anymore live.

Leave them both in the show though. they make great bathroom breaks  :D

I would take a bathroom break during the bongo-ified Crazy Tonight

One. to me, WOWY was performed with real passion for this tour. I also thought it worked very well with the lighting and costume. It was a great fit for this tour.

One. It's not the same anymore...

Besides, I'd KILL to hear WOWY live, even if it sucks. Even if it was the worst performance the world has ever seen... it's still worth it for me.

Crazy Tonight was a highlight of the show I was at. It was fantastic.

I say One. WOWY still packs an emotional punch for me while One has lost it.

I knew I would get that question.  I dont think U2 was really the U2 we know and love before Achtung Baby.  Correct me if I'm wrong but they weren't known as arguably the greatest live band on earth until Zoo TV, which was the first tour that featured One and With or Without You

Agreed. :( It's lost its emotional punch.

both are good.

but WOWY is legendary, and much less in-your-face preachy than One.

besides, I'd let both slide if they'd play Mofo.  ;D

Ok, I will  ;D

U2 would not have ever made it in the music business if it were not for their live shows/constant touring. That is how they made their name and became popular. They were known, from very early on, how good they were live. It was really their performance at Live Aid that cast them into the stratosphere and world prominence for their performances.

And then Zoo TV cast them outside of the bonds of our atmosphere and into a territory never explored by any bands before them ;)

Ive seen 7 or 8 show on elevation and vertigo without WOWY and you don't even notice it's gone. I consider WOWY to be the biggest risk at Glastonbury. This will not be a pro U2 crowd as the festival was sold out before U2 was announced. The way WOWY is played shows their age and I don't think it will come across well.

Well, based on their current performances they both are less than what they used to be... :-( WOWY's been performed this lazy since Popmart, but One is a disappointing surprise. Bono should not be resting his voice on classic tracks. It devalues them.
Personally I'd like to hear One instead of WOWY anytime, this said though, I'd keep WOWY in this particular setlist, just for first time concert goers. The communal singing of "Wooaooooos" is fun.
