How Much $ Is That U2 Song Worth To You?

cup-of-joe

I hate set-lists. The only thing I hate more than set lists are the people who create them.  Extreme set-list makers will agonize over everything from song selection to placement. These nuts spend days, weeks and months making sure every U2 CD and decade have equal representation, to which I say, “F*CK THAT!” Getting that off my chest makes me feel much better. Now, let’s go make a U2 set-list. Wait, what?  Not any old set list, but a set list with a u2radio.com spin on it. Here’s the catch, you have $25 to purchase songs to create your own set list.  You must spend exactly $25, no more, no less. Hey, I’m running out of change, Too bad! Regardless of the length of your set list, (2 songs or 8 songs) you will leave your show completely satisfied.  Each song below has been given a dollar amount. You can pick as many or as few U2 songs as you want. Songs not on the list below cost $3 each. Dollar amounts were calculated using a very complicated algebraic algorithm. Not really, I just made it up. All sales are final and there are no refunds or rain checks.  Shop wisely and post your list in the comment section.

    Chris, I should take $5 off for screwing up, but since you bought The Fly, you are forgiven.

    Are you sure you’re a U2 fan???
    .
    First you want their gigs to start at 10:00 AM… now you’ve set the show to be a max of 8 songs, and that is only if I choose Your Blue Room and Return of the Stingray Guitar.
    .
    .
    I want a 3 hour set list where Invisible gets played over and over again, and I want Chris right next to me for the entire show. David’s paying.

      Leeny, stop your whining and make your selections. Invisible is going to cost you, so pay up and remember, The Fly at $10 is a STEAL!

    Bleaah..Gross…Eeeew….I want a show with a 3 h setlist where Achtung Baby gets played in its entirety and where Bono apologizes for ever releasing Invisible and that we’ll never hear it again ! EVER ! That they’re working on a smashing ROCK album with quality synth-shades, hard beats from Larry, groovy base by Adam and long solos by Edge..of course good vocal performance by Bono too ! And I want Leeny to be there to hear this…

    Joe…if you have to put Invisible on the list might as well price it at 300 bucks !

    I figured you and Chris had that covered.

    After much deliberation, I’m going to go with:

    $10- The Fly
    $8-Mofo
    $4- Crumbs
    $3- Stand Up Comedy

    Leaving off some classics is like a dagger through the heart. Also, I felt the need to rock out here, would love to hear Windows & When I look at the world, but cuts had to be made.

    Difficult task to take a decision…So many great songs are listed here. Acrobat is expensive in comparison to some other pieces, but I insist on it! After trying different possibilities I let you know my final version:

    Acrobat
    HMTMKMKM
    Window In The Skies

      Great selection Pam. Acrobat was too costly in the end for me.

    Good morning, Joe! I also like your set list, especially Stand Up Comedy. A live version of that song would be a powerful highlight in a U2 show.

    I have a new question…a bit of a twist of Joe’s original question:
    .
    How much is that forthcoming album worth to you?
    .
    Are you willing to give up some of your free time for it?
    .
    Bono has said they are waiting for God to enter the room where/when they are working on the new songs.
    Believers, have you been praying for this to happen?
    I wonder what would happen if all of the believing U2 fans made a concerted effort to pray for inspiration to come to Bono and the band. Would it make a difference to the band, knowing that thousands of fans are praying for them? Would it change the outcome of the new CD?
    I don’t know, but I think I’ll start. Can’t hurt. Will anyone join me?

    Leeny, I’ve been praying for the new album since the 1st listen of NLOTH. 😉

    Joseph, you are a brat. 😛

    At least a prayer chain won’t get held up by the European postal system.
