My top five, in order:

One Tree Hill
The Unforgettable Fire
Bad
Heartland
A Sort Of Homecoming

I also adore Bass Trap and think it is one of the best instrumentals ever. Clearly, I win the fight for compatibility with Vazza.

It's actually the instrumental at the moment

Piano =

One Tree Hill isn't counted in my usual top five because it wouldn't be fair to the other songs btw

Vazza?

UF is like number 6...Bad is always in the top 10 of course.

But I fucking hate WITS, and here's why.

It's just meaningless pop that sounds just like ATYCLB and leaves us no hope for the future

Haha to OTH.

I don't have the instrumental track. I might like it better without the most vapid lyrics Bono has ever written (yes, more vapid than One, which I think has its moments).

edit: and that's why i fucking hate WITS, which has the most inapt acronym ever.

Vazza. You can't marry someone from this part of the world without your name being butchered into a last name ending in either -azza or -o. But before you whip out the divorce papers, let me remind you that I think WITS is the very definition of bland "U2 by numbers" Coldplay music.

I don't get the -azza or azzo thing. Is it like poland where everyone is a -ski?

Anyway, I am the type to keep my own last name. Or in this case, my favorite baseball player's last name.

I'm tempted to afford the same luxury to Stay and TUF.

I faint every time The Edge plays the solo from the JT Paris show. I haven't watched the dvd closely but the solo that's on the bootleg makes me go numb, it goes to another level where it instantly becomes top 5.

It's just that ... Australians can't speak English and I've been here too long? Something like that. Incidentally, nobody has ever successfully been able to turn my name, André, into some Australianised nickname. Azza is commonly associated with the name Aaron.

But I know Shazzas and Kazzas and Dazzas and Bazzas, so a Vazza fits right in. Alternatively, you could be Varro and fit in with Stevo, Johnno, and Gibbo.

I generally just generalize the two cultures into the equivalent of US-Canada, and know nothing more.

(Before you Kiwis get upset, this means that I think you are smaller and dependant on Australia, but far superior socially/politically. But I have very little basis for this. I can, however, tell the accents appart, and though I've never pulled off an Irish or British accent, I can do a mean New Zealand. That you would probably laugh at.)

Timothius in the past argued that Australia is actually dependent on New Zealand. Vazza, you need to adopt that opinion.

I guess Valentine's day is a poor day to break up. So we won't get divorced if you'll send me the instrumental WITS. Because I actually do like the piano a bit, even if I loathe the lyrics and dislike the overall sound of the song.
