So, does that mean you want their sappier love songs, then?

With Or Without You
Luminous Times
Walk to the Water
Everlasting Love
Sweetest Thing
In a Little While
Wild Honey
Ultra Violet
Even Better Than The Real Thing
Do You Feel Loved
Two Hearts Beat As One
Heartland

Well, Sweetest Thing would be an obvious choice. I've always thought Ultraviolet was romantic. Don't go with All I Want is You, it might look sappy. If you wear the Velvet Dress, Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses, and So Cruel are sexy. If you want something more edgey, I think Spanish Eyes is romantic. Depending on your relationship with her, Wild Honey could be charming. And Mysterious Ways would be cute.

That's all I can think of off the top of my head.

Here are some songs that I think would be good for the casual fan:


In A Little While
Stay (live from Toronto)
With or Without You (live from R&H)
Wild Honey
Stuck in a Moment(acoustic version)
Two Shots of Happy, One Shot of Sad
Everlasting Love
ISHFWILF (from R&H)

Good Luck!

Hmmmmnn, What would I want on a U2 mixed Cd from a guy???

In a Little While
With or Without You
If You Wear That Velvet Dress
Trip Through Your Wires
Love is Blindess
Dancing Barefoot
Two Hearts Beat as One
Angel of Harlem
All I Want is You
Hallelujah Here She Comes
Grace
Slow Dancing

...and if you have it.... 'I've Got You Under My Skin' by Bono and Frank Sinatra..... that is the song of seduction If there ever was one.

1. elevation (tomb raider mix)
2. with or without you
3. Kite (with intro of the song by bono at
notre dame)
4. Until the end of the world
5. In God's Country
6. Stay (Live from Toronto)

I've never had the pleasure of hearing The Ground Beneath Her Feet live, so I am not sure how the acoustic version sounds. However, I really love the song myself.

Here's a few other suggestions.

Stuck In A Moment (also consider the acoustic version)
Numb (a little on the odd side, but shows her what variety U2 has in their music)
Discotheque
The Playboy Mansion
Staring at the Sun
The Fly
Beautiful Day (a MUST)
Zooropa
Walk On (also a must!)
I Will Follow
Sunday Bloody Sunday
Where The Streets Have No Name
I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For
Running To Stand Still
Bullet the Blue Sky
New Year's Day

Throw in the Bad/40/Streets combo from the Elevation Tour. If that doesn't wow her, then nothing will!

A few more suggestions:

October
One (live from Irving Plaza becuase it has a snippet of "Walk On")
Definitely the acoustic version of Ground...

Hmmm no one has mentioned "Please" I'd put that on the tape. It's so powerful. Maybe even "Please/Streets" from the Popheart EP.

Definately "Ground Beneath Her Feet" but I'd opt for the album version and I believe "Walk On" is a must.

For 80's stuff--> "Unforgettable Fire" and obviously "Bad".

Don't want to bombard her with just greatest hits.

Let us know what you choose!

I think all of these songs are terrific suggestions, especially Wild Honey...any guy wanting to melt my heart would do it with the song.

Good luck!

good suggestion bbug but eventhough this is going to a really good looking girl , it has to start out rocking.

i was thinking "elevation" for the opener.
