Best U2 Songs to Dance To?

Ok so I have my birthday party in two weeks and we're having a DJ. I can play my choice of music. Thing is it's also my sister's birthday too and let's just say that she likes the crap that's on radio today as well as everyone I invited. I'm not going to play all U2 or a lot of U2 either. I just wanted to know what U2 songs these kids could relate to. That and what would be the best songs to play (Ex. dancing, partying). It doesn't necessarily have to be what they can relate to just whatever you guys think.

Depends on what kind of party you're having. Mescaline + Viva Davidoff = good times.

Well, we're pretty much gonna sit back and dance and party and chat it up a bit. There'll be food and other stuff but mainly with this party music is gonna be important.

Mysterious Ways is the first one that comes to mind.

Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me
I Will Follow
Out of Control

Those last two are only good if you like to do the jump-up-and-down-as-if-your-life-depended-on-it kind of dancing.

DYFL and EBTTRT always get me, as does MW. "Summer Rain" is probably my favorite to dance to.

Seriously, The Fly (Lounge Fly Mix), Lady With The Spinning Head (Extended Dance Mix), Mysterious Ways and Do You Feel Loved are probably all you need. Also, there are some awesome, obscure dance mixes of Streets and In God's Country out there, as well as the less obscure Quincey & Sonance mix of Beautiful Day from U2 7.

EDIT: Forgot Discotheque (DM Deep Club Mix) and, of course, Lemon (Perfecto Mix). I used to collect fruitlegs, so I have a ton of this crap that I never listen to. If you don't have these tracks already, run a search on blogsearch.google.com for "U2 discography" and maybe they'll have the singles available. The U2mp3s.com forum is pretty damn slow, but if you need anything specific, they'll upload it for you. One day.

Mysterious Ways is the only correct answer.

Then, the Lemon Jeep Mix.

Looks as if Mysterious Ways has the first spot on the setlist!

1. Mysterious Ways
2.
3.
4.

I'm thinking four might be good. Maybe even five, but that would be pushing it. Anyway I was thinking Pop might have a couple good ones.

^ Well, it's all about taste... For example, my fav one from POP is Mofo

IMO (and as many of you said):

Even Better Than The Real Thing (The Perfecto Mix)
Mysterious Ways (Solar Plexus Club Mix)
Discotheque (Hexidecimal Mix)
Lady With The Spinning Head (Extended Dance Mix)
Salome (Zooromancer Mix)
Lemon (Perfecto Mix)
Beautiful Day (Quincey & Sonance Remix)
And perhaps a POP one, but I'm not sure...

To sum up, I think you need remixes

Maybe you could also try The Electric Co. or something like that from Boy

Well maybe the Artificial Horizon CD will show up in our mailboxes for those subscribed to U2.com in the next two weeks. It is supposed to have all remixes.

Lemon

I have to check out those remixes. It'd be neat if they were on YouTube. I would download them but I just don't know about having files that I'd never listen to again in my life.

Ok so I heard the Lemon remix. Unfortunately I am not too big a fan of it. I have to check out Discotheque's remix. I think Discotheque on it's own is a very dance-able song. I love it!

1. Mysterious Ways
2. Discotheque
3.
4.
*5.

I'm thinking of adding LWTSH (Extended Dance Mix) to the "setlist". It's a good one and it kind of sums up Achtung Baby in one song.
