Neuromancer - Zooropa

I read an article lately that stated that William Gibson's book Neuromancer is being made into a movie.

U2's song Zooropa was based on this book. I think Zooropa would be and excellent song to be included in a cyberpunk/blade runner type movie.

Anyone think of any other U2 songs that would go well in this setting?

Also the Radiohead song Planet Telex from the bends album would also be Ideal.

Anyone think of any other Artists songs that would fit into this bleak future.

from the all mighty wikipedia:

Neuromancer is a 1984 novel by William Gibson, notable for being the most famous early cyberpunk novel and winner of the so-called science-fiction "triple crown" (the Nebula Award, the Philip K. Dick Award, and the Hugo Award). It was Gibson's first novel and the first of the Sprawl trilogy.

Neuromancer tells the story of Case, an out-of-work computer hacker hired by an unknown patron to participate in a seemingly impossible crime. The novel examines the concepts of artificial intelligence, virtual reality, genetic engineering, multinational corporations overpowering the traditional nation-state and cyberspace long before these ideas became fashionable in popular culture including the internet itself.

Gibson also explores the dehumanizing effects of a world dominated by ubiquitous and cheap technology, writing of a future where violence and the free market are the only things upon which one may rely, and in which the dystopian elements of society are counterbalanced by an energy and diversity that is perversely attractive.
