A Song For a Girl

There's a conference at an event I'm going to in mid-May, and there's a talent show one of those nights. I intend to sing a song and play the guitar with it, and dedicate it to a special girl. But I'm right confused as to which I should sing! I've got it short-listed to this (but not restricted to these):

Mother (Pink Floyd)
So Cruel
Tryin To Throw Your Arms Around The World
All I Want Is You

So help me out, which should I do? Any suggestions for other songs U2 or otherwise are appreciated.

If I knew how to make a poll I would.

This might probably wouldn't be the song to choose if you like her.

that's what i was thinking......but All I want Is You sounds good....although I can't really think of any other happy U2 love songs.

Hey Desire would be nice....but that wouldn't sound good for a solo act!

Hmm...I just realized that. Good point. Scratch "So Cruel" from the list.

oh... and any song that says "and a woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle" wouldn't be my first choice either... so it looks like you're stuck with all i want is you

Yeah, and most argue that AIWIY isn't a love song (though I personally see it as such from my own analysis).

Well a friend suggested it to me, so I put it on the list anyways...

Well it looks like the winner is AllI Want Is You

Unless there are any other suggestions....

the scientist would be perfect if you have recently broken up with a girl and want her back.

actually i would pass out if any guy played a coldplay song for me.
