Oh and I would probably consider, for maybe about a minute and a half, going to see them if running to stand still was to start showing up in setlists with any sort of regularity...until I remembered how peef got screwed over with the fly, and how mediocre they were when I saw them, how expensive tickets were almost 10 years ago, etc.

For a moment, though, I'd consider it. Running to Stand Still is awesome.

I saw Miss Sarajevo three times on 360 and every time before it started I was hoping to just hear a slightly different series of piano notes... a man can dream.

Shuttlecock II: This is Where We Can Reach Around

The miracle song
Something else off the new album
Beautiful day
New Year's Day
Sunday Bloody Sunday
Three more from the new album
Three or four older songs but nothing too obscure
Something unfortunate from htdaab
A couple more from the new album
In a little while
One
I will follow
Streets
Another one from the new album that will be horribly anticlimactic pre-encore and pale by comparison even if they phone it in on streets
----
Invisible
Bad acoustic versions of the new songs they haven't played, playing everything from the new album minus the troubles and hopefully California + stuck in a moment
Some medley of past closers ultimately finishing with part of 40

I'd be fairly sure that 'All Because of You' and a reworked 'Mercy' will feature in the setlist. They haven't finished fucking with Mercy, as I'm sure we're all going to be aware.

I don't expect it to happen, but I would totally be into U2 adopting the "two sets with an interval, shorter encore" format that a lot of bands play these days.

Finally getting around to the album again for the first time since Thursday. Went ahead and put Invisible in as track 2 to check it out.

hearing Bad-Mercy live was still fucking astonishing, but I hadn't heard it before I saw it live, so to hear no bridge and that stupid fucking BECAUSE BECAUSE BECAUSE shit was heartbreaking. just the perfect example of all my frustrations with the band over the past five years... something great is there, let's fuck it up.

I can't tell if you're kidding or not. Remember this? Really? The single most divisive and most talked about song in the history of the message board? Of course everyone remembers Mercy.

it was very much rhetoric.

"remember this" as in "remember a 00s U2 song that could truly, truly stand with the likes of Streets and One".

Mercy - the one they haven't fucked with and can't because it's a studio track from ten years ago - is fantastic.

The 'because because because we blah blah blah' one on tours, less so. WHatever the fuck happened to 'love is come again, I am gone again' and 'baby I'm born again, and again, and again, again and again...'

With the likes of Streets and One? That's dumb even by your standards.

The love that song gets here is baffling. "LOVE! IS! WHERE I LIE!" As corny as Bono can get, and that's saying something.

Anyways, I was lucky to get Running to Stand Still on the Vertigo Tour before the debut of Miss Sarajevo. Thank goodness. It was one of the highlights of a great show.

While I don't care for the production on the track (years of familiarity with the live version, I suppose), I'm starting to think Every Breaking Wave is one of the better tracks on the album. Great chorus.

The amount of syllables crammed into every verse of The Miracle makes it nearly unlistenable. It's like Bono wrote down his memoirs and recited them. Pretty sure that's still my least favorite. California may be stupid and obvious, but it has a wonderful chorus.
