A friend and I were talking about how U2 has yet to play Window in the Skies live, and it got me to thinking about songs they have never played live or haven't played in a long time.

What songs would you like to see the band either bring back or play for the first time? I'd love to see them bring back anything from the Zooropa album, especially Zooropa. I'd love to see if they could pull off a full version of the song.

Miss Sarajevo would definitely be fun to hear live.

Although if I had to pick one U2 song from their entire catalog, it would have to be "All I Want is You."

Actually, does anybody here know how I could play "All I Want is You" on my MySpace page?

Miss Sarajevo was awesome live. Seriously.

Stop me before I go on and on and on about how fantastic it was to be threee feet away from Bono when he was singing that.

Seconded. That is my favorite all-time U2 song. I think it'd be a monster to play live, but I would have a dream come true if they would play that & I could sit somewhere close to watch Larry playing it.

Out of all the songs the band has never played live, the one I would most love to hear is Heartland. That would be quite incredible.

And out of those that haven't been done in a bloody long time, bring on Twilight. It hasn't been done in 22 years and I cannot fathom why. I think it's the best song on Boy apart from The Electric Co.

Miss Sarajevo IS fantastic live. Bono gives an incredible performance.

One that they havne't played in a while (although I know that they did play it a few times during the Elevation tour) is 11 O'Clock Tick Tock. I love that song live. I'd also like to hear some stuff that we haven't heard since the Joshua Tree Tour, like Silver and Gold or Exit. Also some stuff from Pop, like Please and Mofo.

Also, I know it will never happen, but I'd really love to hear Native Son live.

Haha, Native Son would make for a lot of confuuuuused people. (I'm laughing out loud at the image...)


I'd love to hear...pretty much anything I haven't heard yet live, but I suppose All I Want is You would top that list. (I've been to two shows...3rd coming up in 11 days...!!)

Yeah, it does surprise me that they never played Red Hill Mining Town live. Such a great song.

Promenade and A Man and A Woman.

Roman candle lightning lights up the sky <-- I *heart* that lyric

And song that they played relatively recently, but I would like to hear live is Stay (Faraway, So Close!).

I just read on u2.com that they're going to play Window in the Skies on the next show, in Tokio, for the very first time :-) I'm looking forward to hear what it sounds like when played live!!

Yep! They snuck it in between Beautiful Day and Walk On.

I'm predicting we'll see it on youtube within the day.

Surrender is one I loved from the 1983 tour. And I miss Gloria. I can't believe they blew off BOY and OCTOBER with the new SINGLES disc.

why has no one said Electrical Storm!?
Bono has said that it's one of his favorite songs to play, yet they almost NEVER do it live!

Which would you rather hear them do live? The original version or the William Orbit mix?

oooo.. good question.
most likely the original, the orbit mix is better as just a promo or (like it's called) a mix.
