Best of 2000 - 2010

We all know the story; U2 made a deal with Island as a 'thank-you' to release three best ofs. I was just thinking of the singles that would be on a Best of 2000-2010, and got a warm tingling feeling. Best of 1980-1990 was good, Best of 1990-2000 was better, and Best of 2000-2010 has the potential of being the best...

Potential Tracklisting (so far):

1. Walk On
2. Elevation
3. Vertigo
4. All Because of You (North American release)
5. Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own
6. City of Blinding Lights
7. Mircale Drug (?)

Can anyone think of odd ball tracks in line with "The Hands That Built America" or "Miss Sarajevo" that have been done since 2000 that might be included? I can't off the top of my head...

Song of the Day

Today's Selection is...

"Your Blue Room" from Passengers: Original Soundtracks 1


Image hosted by Photobucket.comAdam owns this song. His bass is the lead instrument (I would say) and it's the only song that Adam lends his voice to. For the most part, Bono sings it in his deep throaty voice, but also gives us falsetto!Bono during the chorus. :) Again this song isn't all U2 and it's quite evident with all the people singing the "Your Blue Room" part(though I can't be too sure who is contributing there). The song is alright, not really something I can listen to like a regular U2 song. I listen mainly to hear Adam talking the lines at the end which is, unmistakeably, the best part of the song for me. The guitar doesn't even start until Adam starts singing. !

Also, new Verdana love from now on!

i heart you

U2 & Coldplay?

I don't know if any of you are not only U2 fans but also Coldplay fans BUT....

Is it just me or does the hidden track on Coldplay's new album X & Y (called Kingdom Come) kind of sound like something U2 (esp. Bono) would write & play?

I don't know...it's just something I came across & I wonder if anyone else agrees.

Thanks!

un photo!

i have a quick question about a picture of Bono and Edge that's been saved on my computer for a few weeks.

well, basically... does anybody know where the picture is from? it looks like Bono and Edge are wearing the same clothes that they're wearing in the "Pride (in the Name of Love)" video that's here, but after watching that video, i don't think this picture is from it.

any help would be appreciated. thanks!

Hey! I joined this community a few days ago, ive already commented on some of your posts. Anyway, U2 is definitly my favorite band. Ill be 17 in 2 weeks so I know i'm not REALLY old enough to appreciate everything that they have done, but whatever. I started listening to u2 when i was about 14 (my mom is irish and knew of them and liked their music) and I fell in love with them. The first cd of theirs i got was the best of 1990-2000, and listened to it basically religiously for about 3 months and ive expanded my collection since then.
I know the general consensus is that The Joshua Tree is their greatest album and is most people's favorite, but my favorite album is definitly War.
It has been said that the mark of a truly great band is when your favorite song by them changes like the weather, and at least for me, that can definitly be said about u2. One day it will be New Years Day, the next it will be Like A Song (hence the username lol), the next it will be The Hands that Built America, and the next it will be A Man and A Woman, and so forth.
I live in Los Angeles, and it would be my dream come true to see them play at the Staples Center in November. Its my birthday really soon and my mom said that she would try to get tickets for me, but of course, since its U2 its pretty much sold out, so if anyone knows where I can find tickets for not TOO much over the face value that would be wonderful.

I could write all day about what I think about different songs of theirs and what I want to see happen with them in the future and all that but this would get way too long and i'm sure nobody wants to hear all that right now, so I'll end this here. I just want to say that I'm really glad I found a good u2 community, I was a member of one before on my old livejournal but nobody ever posted or anything and it kind of...died. Everybody here seems so nice and knowledgeable and I really like it. :)
