Funeral or tribute songs for U2 when they die

When U2 members die, which I hope will be a long long time from now, they will play songs from their career as a tribute to them. You know how when someone famous dies, they show their lives and careers and work on TV and play their songs on the radio? Which songs do you think will be appropriate ones to play at their deaths to remember them by and represent their career? I think One and WOWY are good choices. What songs will they play, what will the media say, how do you think they will be remembered and what will be their legacy when they are gone?

You didn't get the memo? They're immortal.

Ok, real answer? I don't want to answer 'cos it's such a terrible thought.

I hate shows like that

The Unforgettable Fire would be appropriate

I got it.


Seriously, they will definitely play One, maybe they will also do Beautiful Day, ISHFWILF, IGWSHA, One Tree Hill, or Kite.

But that's going to be a loooooong time from now. Sad thought.

I think they should have a big sendoff concert.

There are so many. There will probably be a lot of tribute shows and specials when the sad time comes. There will be books and magazines too. Of course this all depends on how long they live and how well remembered they are at the time, but I'm sure they always will be. I'm sure Bono will be remembered for more than his music too. Being I'm as old as they are, I will be going with them, and be in Heaven with them before you younguns.

Please, can we speculate SOME MORE about when U2 will die?

Any other bad things we can think of to talk about?

just before the release of ATYCB a mexican journalist asked Bono the same question and he answered:

"uhh tough question (pause), (then he stared to sing) .... Love is blindness
I don't want to see
Won't you wrap the night
Around me
Oh my love
Blindness
A little death
Without mourning
No call
And no warning
Baby...a dangerous idea
That almost makes sense"

He actually chose LIB for his funeral? I wonder if now he'd like to add an ATYCLB song since so many of those are now associated with death. I'm sure the media will have a field day with him when he dies. Oh, Bono don't die! None of them
