Any songs off the Bomb which could work well acoustically?

Thinking back to the last album - Stuck In A Moment sounded fresh and great at first but interest died down only to be renewed by a very different treatment - the acoustic version recorded in Vienna mid way through the European leg of the Elevation Tour.

Now (forgetting Edge's inspired banjo version of Vertigo) which, if any, songs off the new album do you think might gain a new lease of life by being given the acoustic, stripped down, treatment?

One step closer. Original of the species with Edge on piano and Bono on acoustic guitar.
(I'm hoping they will put Bono behind the piano on tour so Edge can play the electric guitar, though)

A man and a woman, but that is already played on acoustic guitar.

Maybe Sometimes...?

Actually, I can't think of any song from HTDAAB that wouldn't sound good (at least, interesting) done acoustically.

I mean, if Vertigo can sound that good on the banjo - anything is possible!

Remember how beautiful SBS was done acoustically?

All Because Of You is a typical chords song, probably written on acoustic guitar. A slower acoustic version might sound nice.
The same for crumbs.

Fast Cars??????
You'd take away what makes the song great.

I would say Crumbs OOTS for sure because they did it at the ipod thing.

Isn't Fast Cars already predominately acoustic?

I would vote for All Because of You and Original of the Species.

Altough my least favorite song of the album (by that I mean I like it, don't hate it, but just the last one I like), I think crumbs would be great!

On the DVD, before Larry comes in (no offense Lar!) I just think the song is so much better!

No, I'd say definately not (at least at the start). I think the two live versions we've already heard will set the tone for the tour. It'll work like "Kite" really IMO .
