Mysterious Ways

I hope that when they get to Boston, this won't be in the setlist anymore. I was bummed when it was added after San Diego.It is the 2nd worst U2 song and is way OVERPLAYED! (BTW, the worst is Even Better than the Real Thing.) I think Edge likes it because of his wife. I could think of many other songs to play instead of that one. Ultraviolet, A Sort of Homecoming, Unforgettable Fire, Out of Control, Seconds, Two Hearts... just to name a few. Who would want to hear those songs when we can hear Mysterious Ways for 500th time?

Wow MusicalJourneyman you really have to hear how they have played it the last few shows. They are at the top of their game with this song.

Sacrelige is not playing Bad, Hawkmoon or Heartland. It's time to retire MW. Bring back Kite and Walk On.

Fuck Kite. Talk about the worst song. I love to dance to Mysterious Ways. All you can do to Kite is hold up a lighter.

If you want to dance, go see KC or some other crap disco band. U2 isn't about dance music. They are a rock'n'roll band!

u2 isn't about dance music?
skipping the entire decade of the 90s are we?
mysterious ways is very rock n roll, but it is also very sexy. just like u2.
plus, the song kicks ass live.

The inanity of saying that one doesn't dance to rock and roll is just fucking stupid.

You apparently don't listen to much rock and roll.


PS Kite isn't a rock and roll song. It's a lighter-waving song.

First off, I don't wave lighters, especially at a U2 show. They aren't Poison. If you can't see the beauty of Kite than you are missing what U2 is about. Replies laced with obscenities don't make an argument stronger. They just show that you aren't eloquent enough to state your case.

Oh shit. I'm going to have to toss out all my U2 records because I don't like one poorly executed U2 song.

Bono and I have a problem with ineloquence. Damn.

I think there should be a separate forum entitled "Sacrilege." This thread would fit well with it.

<- To Mysterious Ways

journeyman, we will never see heartland, I don't think
that song is unreal, with those lyrics and that haunting sound...

but it's buried along with hawkmoon, actually have they ever played either of those?

the only thing I can think of is U2 brought out Mysterious for their female fans, actually my buddy is a musician and he suggested this (makes sense)

you're right on target though kid, where is bad or sort of homecoming kite walk on anything off achtung except mysterious and fly and zoo... walk on is like brilliant got to be the best song off leave behind...

I've been to 4 of the 6 hshows already... would have died to hear something off unforgettable.... besides ah the obligatory Pride

where are u from in MA, I'm from Falmouth class of '89...
