If they were to bring back one NLOTH song

If U2 were to bring back *one* previously played NLOTH song which they aren't currently playing on the 360 Tour, what should it be?

Bring Breathe back as the opener.

I have voted for NLOTH myself as although I want them *all* back, and although Unknown Caller is my favourite of them, I thought NLOTH was easily the best live!

To be honest, whilst i absolutely love this album, none of these songs are very suitable for a stadium setting. None of them are very upbeat (except CT), or jumpy, they don't make you want to sing along, and they're just not very well known. They don't have the right qualities for a stadium filled mostly with casuals wanting to hear the hits.
It's a shame, i think designing the 360 tour spelled doom for NLOTH - it would have worked a lot better in arenas, but a lot of the songs are almost too dark to be played live at all, if there are many casual fans in attendance.

NLOTH.  It was INCREDIBLE live.  But I would like to see them all come back on some basis (except the Crazy album version)

No Line. One of their best rockers since The Fly.

Bring them all back . If I wanted to watch a greatest hit band there are plenty of 80's revival bands around . loved the new song one the first leg of the tour .
really miss Unknown Caller so that got my vote .

Do something different and play I'll Go Crazy in the album style, move The Real Thing to the Crazy remix spot and open the show with Desire.

Oh and add Please in place of SBS, alternate The Fly and Acrobat in the encores, and then film a show and release a second 360 DVD.  :)

No Line on the Horizon! Great song, really stands up live, and at one of my shows it definitely got the best reaction out of all the new songs.

Breathe! Bring back Breathe!!

I don't think NLOTH is as good as the rest of you, I guess. I wouldn't even compare it to The Fly, let alone call it their best rocker since The Fly.

Unknown Caller is an amazing song.  I love it and would pick that one.

No Line On The Horizon for me. I always thought it should be tightened up a little more, but all in all it's an amazing live song. My second choice would be Breathe, but not as the opener.

I voted for No Line, believe it or not. But it was a toss up because I really wanted to say Unknown Caller too.

And now maybe Magnificent. But to be honest, I'd prefer Breathe came back... I love Magnificent, but I love Breathe better.
