Hello Hello!!


June 20th, 2003

question for you all @ 10:52 pm

ecchinkgrl:
I'm currently hearin: u2 - One

say that you're given the task of trying to convert as many people as possible to U2 fans (silly fools if they're not already fans, but i digress...) you can only play this single, solitary song to as many people as possible...so my question is, if you were to pick a SINGLE U2 song to get people to love the band - what song would it be?



my choice...is pretty obvious, check out what i'm listening to.

One is my first choice; With or Without You is my second. I think if you are trying to get the most people to respond, you need to go with a more low key song. Then once you hook them, you hit them with songs like Lemon (I love that song!).

Sunday Bloody Sunday. 'Cause that's what it was for me, anyway.

hmmm...that's a tough one...i think i'd definitely play bullet the blue sky, but the version from rattle and hum...live stuff is always the best :)

AHHHHHH! That's my favorite U2 song, but very few people claim it.

Amazing.

It's not my absolute favourite, but it's one I think would really hook people onto U2.

Good Question! So many people have so many different tastes. I'd have to think of the song that I think has the most widespread appeal.

So I think I'd go with "With Or Without You".

I can't pick just one song for everyone. Know if I could just play each person one song and I could play different songs for different people that would be easier. You could figure out which songs are most suited to each person's taste.
I guess I'd go with Pride because well it's one of my favs and my sister who hates U2 likes it so there you go. :p

Wow.. so many songs and to pick just one.
umm..well.. I have deducted all low tempo songs, because they are not appealing to everyone.

Mysterious Ways.

Yeah.. Mysterious Ways. Rocking, but a little dancy.. deep, but hidden under a groovy bass line.

Yes Mysterious Ways, should please everyone.

i think it would depend on the person's taste in music

if they were into lyrics it would definately be one. but if they just listened to music and ignored lyrics probably with or without you because its my favorite. even though if they liked faster songs, i'd probably do streets or sunday bloody sunday. and theres all sorts of other goodies too.

Depends on the person...but I know that if I'd never heard U2 before and someone played me a live version of "With or Without You" I'd be beyond stuck.
