I can never rank this stuff satisfactorily, you guys need to have ties in the ranking sections. Whatever I say also really only reflects my current feelings, which tend to change from month to month more than year to year.

I did it, though I hate to sometimes have to chose one because generally I don't have the one favourite.

anyway, for those who have taken the survey, what was the toughest question for you to answer?

The one about "it's U2's last concert, what song should they end with?"

I chose "Streets", just b/c (as far as I know) they've never ended with it before, but I was really torn between "Streets", "Bad" and "40".

How could you not like Walk On? I mean, just listen to those lyrics--that's one of the most emotional songs I've ever heard!

It would be interesting to know how those folks came up with their questions.

thanks for posting this- i took it a year or two ago, interesting to see the results.

please post the results here when they have them, as they didn't collect email addresses to send them out this time. (thanks!)

toughest for me was answering "If ___ left should the other three continue on as U2?"

I answered "no" for two of them and "yes" for two. I felt mildly guilty about that. It's good to know I'd never be the one in the position to make that decision. I think that's something they could only decide themselves.

REM seems to have handled that situation in the best possible way. i imagine U2 would handle it that way as well.

My toughest ones were picking favorite individual songs from albums. I hate to vote for the song that's obviously going to garner the most votes, like Where The Streets Have No Name or Sunday Bloody Sunday, especially when there are other great songs on the album that aren't quite as good but need to be more recognized.

Those were definitely tough questions to ask . . . especially since they had "An Cat Dub" and "Into the Heart" as two separate selections! (So I went with "Electric Co." )

I think my toughest 2 albums were "War" and "Zooropa", but I think I finally went with Surrender and Zooropa as my favs.

Surrender.

I found it very hard to vote for a favourite studio cover. I'm not exactly a huge fan of any of them.

The hardest question for me was "what would you like to do?" - it was hard to pick between watching them make and album and work on the tour, but I went with tour work in the end.


Is it hipocrisy if I said "no" to the "would you want the band to keep going as U2 if _____ quit?" question but said "probably" to the question "if U2 found a replacement for a member, would you buy their new album" question ?

I hope not, I did the same thing. I wouldn't want any of the band members to quit, but if one of them had I'd still probably buy their new album.

ok those questions about if someone left the band are bizarre...U2 is more cohesive than ever and they understand that...they all constantly remark about how inter related everyone is in the band...for a massive u2 survey to include numerous questions about it seems like they think are actually serious...am i missing something here? I mean, I've never seen anything related to those questions in all the hours and hours of looking and watching U2-related stuff, and now it comes up on a survey like this? Just seems kind of weird...this question seems very very far out there...almost too far out to be taken seriously...just my opinion...

Yep, you're quite correct. It's opened an encore before, and it ended the main set at every Popmart gig, but it's never actually been the final song of any full gig. Though out of its 3 non-tour appearances - liquor store rooftop in 1987, Super Bowl 2002, and Cannes film festival earlier this year - it was the last song at the latter two.
