Top 10 songs post-AtyclB era! (NLOTH included)

Just to be ridiculous.

1. City Of Blinding Lights
2. Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own
3. Electrical Storm
4. Miracle Drug
5. Vertigo
6. I'll Go Crazy If I Don't Go Crazy Tonight
7. All Because Of You
8. No Line On The Horizon
9. FEZ - Being Born
10. Moment Of Surrender

Best Of 1990/2000 - 1
HTDAAB - 5
NLOTH - 4

I will tally this nonsense and it should add more fuel to the "last album versus the new one" fire.

1. Fez-Being Born
2. White As Snow
3. Electrical Storm
4. Magnificent
5. Cedars Of Lebanon
6. Smile
7. No Line On The Horizon II
8. Native Son
9. Unknown Caller
10. One Step Closer

The top four's close. Magnificent could've been #1. And Moment Of Surrender was nearly #10, but OSC deserves some love. In any case, the chart's grossly stacked against HTDAAB anyway. 5 from NLOTH, 2 HTDAAB-era tracks, 1 Best Of track, 1 HTDAAB track, 1 NLOTH b-side.

6. I'll Go Crazy...
7. Original of the Species

You might want to read the original post (and revise your list). It's post-ATYCLB, i.e. material from after ATYCLB. i.e. Best Of 1990-2000, HTDAAB, U2:18, NLOTH, and whatnot.

Wow, that's true... but it's really weird. It should be post 1998 material. That would make more sense. Anyway, I don't think that would make any difference for you with ATYCLB songs.

I would've included TGBHF, though.

That's MDH. (Ok, it closes ATYCLB in some places.)
Anyway, now I just realized I forgot Electrical Storm, I'll need to revise my list anyway.

Beat On The Brat? What's that?

And if we can include live stuff, than this entire list would be a mixture of Vertigo Tour performances of back-catalog songs (and COBL) and new NLOTH material.

In no particular order

2. Moment of Surrender
3. Cedars of Lebanon
4. Smile
5. Original of the Species
6. Mercy
7. Window in the Skies
8. Native Son
9. Fez - Being Born
10. No Line On The Horizon v2

If this had included ATYCLB, then Kite and In A Little While would be on there.

Its good to see Mercy and Smile making people's lists. I totally agree.

A Ramones cover released on a tribute album. Not hard to find.
