What U2 Song Reflects Your Reaction to "the news"?

What U2 songs are you listening to while coping with the recent news of Bono's injury & the postponing of US tour dates?

Oh, man. I just put my "favorite U2 songs" playlist on shuffle for the morning commute. I just wanted to listen to all of it.

I'll crank some concert DVDs in the next few weeks.

I listened to U2 all the way to school and on the way home. I think the song I've played most since the injury is With or Without You. It's good to hear that he is doing better. As for the tour dates I'm not going this year but many of you are. Most of you have been saying how Bono's health is more important than the postponed dates, and I give you all a high five. Very mature and unselfish of you all. I'd do the same had I scored tickets to a show. Just thought I'd say a little on how you guys reacted. I hope you're doing better Bono and I'll keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

PS: Rose Bowl DVD soon.

Wave of Sorrow is really getting to me. I know it's supposed to be about his trip to Ethiopia, but some of the lines just fit:

"Bent over without a breeze
I'm sick without disease
Nobility on his knees"

Don't know why it helps to listen to it though.

I do also love WOWY right now as well as Bad.

All That You Can't Leave Behind always is the one I go back to in these difficult situations.
