Nice. The longbows were awesome.

Though it's not exactly "instant" since you decide to build a wal first. It depends on which civ to use if you want to boom/rush/turtle though, I guess.

The full electric live version of Stay on ZooTV improves on the studio version so much, it's not funny. I don't like the mixing of the studio version, especially not the very start.

Numb, Lemon, and The Wanderer are right up there too, and live Dirty Day rules all.

As it stands, Zooropa has the craptastic Babyface, cheesy Daddy's Gonna Pay, and meh First Time, while HTDAAB has Vertigo, Miracle Drug, SYCMIOYO, LAPOE's title, ABOY, OOTS, and Yahweh holding it back.
Babyface, studio Dirty Day, The First Time, and Crashed Car I always skip. I removed them from my iPod cause I simply never listen to them and have no desire to.

TGBHF...sounds like one I need to listen (or re-listen) to.

God. This forum seems to hate OSC, but I really like it. It's my favourite HTDAAB song. COBL would be, but I can't bear the mixing, and LAPOE would be, but I can't bear most of the lyrics or the title.

yea it takes a long time to set up, but it works.. in the end it's just raping their villages and tah dah!
only fail is the lack of bombard towers/hand cannoneers by the britons..

Joining in.

Zooropa:
Zooropa
Stay
Numb
Daddy's Gonna Pay

Those are my favourites. The rest of the album is pretty good and there's a couple that bore me, but that's pretty much it.

Bomb:
Miracle Drug
COBL
One Step Closer
Yahweh (prefer acoustic.)
Love & Peace

I really can't stand Crumbs and the rest of it is alright.

COBL would be great with different lyrics or just as an instrumental.

YES. It's my favourite song on HTDAAB. (See location. I had an animated icon to go with it but Interference wouldn't let me upload an animated icon. )
I love COBL but I prefer it live.

I haven't listened to Bomb in so long I can't even remember half the songs. And I am not going to listen to it anytime soon. Just because I'm a fan of the band, I don't have to listen to all their albums every week.
