Desire hands down but also because you don't really need to play with an effect and you're just switching off chords. Here are some others that are easy....

Ultra Violet is pretty easy
SBS
Discotheque

the Ultraviolet riff is ultra-easy, i always use it when testing out different effects


'All I Want is You' is also very easy.

i'd disagree about Ultraviolet. the riffs Edge plays live are a little more complicated than on the album, plus there's his falsetto which could be hard to pull off. easiest overall, i'd say I Will Follow

I say anything from their first 3 albums. All you need is an overdrive/distortion, a simple delay pedal and a Vox AC30 or something that can simulate an AC-30.

Yes what Edge did back then takes probably a bit more effort to learn as some of his new stuff but once you got it you can nail it easy because of the easy effects setup.
Yes a lot of new song are dead easy, but you need perfect hearing to obtain he right sound. No need for preprogrammed rack delays timed to the milli-second. Or guitar processors and effects that have been discontinued since Mozes crossed the Red Sea.

Vertigo or All Because of You. Great songs, but also very straight forward rock songs. Maybe Zoo Station if you have a flanger effect.

I don't care, it would be awesome to perform since I'm the lead singer, and I have the vocal tone down cold. Our guitarist is pretty good, I have faith.

the thing with the fly is ya gotta have the right tone, typical with most of edges guitar work really, easy to play, hard to get the right sound

Same with Streets. Many have tried, few have succeeded.

My guy has a good amp with a lot of effects, and he intends to be pedals. What do you need for The Fly and Streets?

You could use the Pod XT Pro rack for 95% of edge's effects..Even the fly..

The ones that have a wah pedal in them are not in the Pod..So maybe even 98%...

But it's like $400

Yeah, I don't think we could go that expensive yet. Right now we're trying to figure out how to get enough money to buy me a guitar, two mics for me and the guitarist, two mic stands, and our drummer a crash/ride cymbal. Funds are limited.

I don't know for The Fly, you probably need a Korg A3. For Streets a good stereo delay is critical. With modulation delay if possible. Ideally a Korg SDD-3000 or a TC-2290. Preferably both. With two Vox AC-30 amps so you get optimal use of the stereo effect.

The Pod saves you thousands of dollars for the same kind of sounds you would get on other machines..

We're going for the cheapest possible, so we may go for sounds that are not quite perfect.

His amp is a Fender, I think, not sure exactly what model.
