HELP! I need pick only ONE song!!

The girls in my house are making an official Chablis House CD. Each room in the house gets to pick ONE song for the CD. I have my room to myself for this semester, so I get to pick my OWN song! (muwahaha!) The girls are expecting me to contribute a U2 song and I can't let them down! Since nobody else in my house is a massive U2 fan do I:

A) Use a song that will elicit a "what the hell?!" response
B) Use a song that they all know
C) Use a song that that they won't know but I think they will like

I'm leaning towards option C because it's always fun to rope in new U2 fans. Right now I'm thinking of going with "In A Little While," but I would like more suggestions.

Please help! It is up to me to see that the girls in my dorm become U2-corrupt!!

Shake them up with a cool B-side

In that case, go with Big Girls or Salome, or Lady With the Spinning Head.

mmm... Dancing Barefoot, perhaps?

Vibrates in the memory;

Live within the sense they quicken.

OK, I just went by the big board where you write down the song you want on the CD. It is not looking good. Here are some of the selections:

There You'll Be - Faith Hill
Red Neck Girl - The Bellamy Brothers
Someday Never Comes - CCR
Don't Let Me Be the Last to Know - Britney Spears
Crawling - Linkin Park
Pop - NSync
Look What You've Done - Tree 63

GRRRR!! bad music bad music!!

Since that list is so bad, go with the longest song you can find to ease your pain...maybe "Bad" from Wide Awake in America.

hahahaha I can't believe that list!!!!

Alright... rope 'em in I say (since they obviously need it)... perhaps you should go with "If You Wear That Velvet Dress"--simply because it is so uniquely U2. I just love it and it's SURE to grow on them (here's hoping)

Go for All I want Is You from R+H. They will soon see the errors in their ways.

LOL! Good idea- go for the longest song you can find....a live version of Bad would be an excellent choice.

More selections:

The Sign - Ace of Base
I Wanna Be With You - Mandy Moore
My Sacrifice - Creed


I've lost all hope of trying to rope em in. I'm gonna feckin' put in Numb or else the Live Aid version of Bad (Good thinkin' Swan 269!). My friend is gonna do "Subterranean Homesick Alien" by Radiohead. That oughta screw up the CD a lil bit...MUWAHAHAHAHA!
