Songs out of left field...

Recommended Posts

What would you want to hear that would be totally out of left field, but perhaps a hidden "chestnut " for long time fans? I'd take any of these...

God part II

Last Night on Earth (which is just amazing live)

Dirty Day

Wild Honey

Original of the Species

So Cruel

Crumbs

A Sort of Homecoming

 

What are yours?

All great suggestions.  What this shows is the depth of the band's catalogue and how they could really mix it up more.  I've seen Pearl Jam on consequetive nights, with almost no overlap at all. Of course, they play 30 plus songs, which allows more breathing room as well, in addition to the fact that they don't have a lot of technological stage design they are tied to.  But with U2's pretty standard set of 23 songs, the hits that they always play, and about 1/3 of new stuff, it doesn't leave much room for change.  I'm not complaining.  From what I've seen here, the show is going to be amazing.  I'll take whatever they play.  And to be fair to the band, I did see an amazing "Your Blue Room" in Chicago that has only been played about 5 times.  And I saw them close with Bad once, which is the only time that ever happened.

Would love to hear them try Silver and Gold one more time.   Any of the above would be awesome.  A Sort of Homecoming too.

Hearing this morning that they played In Gods Country with the fan Bono pulled from audience makes me realize why I love the live shows!!! reminded my of hearing Party Girl in 2005 at MSG- Bono couldnt even remember the words that day- had to ask fans down front to sing it for him- then they broke out the champagne! We need more of that!!!! Crazy great!!

Acrobat

Heartland

Crystal Ballroom

A Sort Of Homecoming

A Man And A Woman - this would make a great b-stage (e-stage?) song

Fez-Being Born

 

"Slow Dancing" used to be on this list, but I finally got to hear them play it in Providence in 2001, so it feels greedy to ask again - but I will always, always take that one, it's an incredibly lyric and beautiful tune.  Anything from Zooropa and Pop will always make me ridiculously happy (especially if it's something other than "Stay" or "Staring At The Sun", which I'm still always overjoyed to hear, but those are the ones you expect from those albums).

I hope they play "Troubles" and "New York" when I see them.  "A Sort of Homecoming" would be the cherry on top of a sundae.
