So the idea is what type of songs would make up the Ultimate U2 album, not best of U2 but what sort of feel does the song have and what sort of balance of song types would work really well!? Choose a song for each of the 11 available song positions on the album! This must be the album that sells better then all the others, so it needs to be a bit progressive but also solid and balanced! Only studio albums no b sides, live songs etc.

 

The next U2 album should be based on similar songs/feel to these:

 

1. Even Better Than The Real Thing.

 

2. New Years Day.

 

3. Moment of Surrender.

 

4. The Unforgettable Fire.

 

5. Until the End of the World.

 

6. Staring at the Sun.

 

7. One.

 

8. Gone.

 

9. Mysterious Ways.

 

10. Love is Blindness.

 

11. Yahweh.

 

 

Tough choices, I would be interested to see other peoples opinions!?

 

You can't please all the people all the time!

 

The idea is to generate some interest and also give u2 some pointers on how the ZOO feels!

Nice selections guys, well done, many minds are better than one!

 

Age 20-30 :Boy, October, War, Unf Fire, Joshua Tree - these years are full of energy, maybe anger, frustration.

 

30-40 : Achtung Baby, Zooropa, Pop - these years are about personal achievement and trying to leave your mark on the world. 40-50 : All that YCL behind, HTD an Atomic Bomb - these years are about mid-life crisis, finding your femine side.

 

50-60 : ??? - these years are about balance and maturity and of course reaping what you have sown up to now!

 

All good music reflects the state of mind of the artists involved and how they see themselves and the world they are in. U2 have never been the Ivory tower types and so are in touch with the world and the lives of normal folk like us. My feeling is their best is yet to come, if they feel up to it.
