songs at superbowl

from u2.com:

All they will say is that one of the following songs will be on the playlist.

* I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For
* Desire
* Beautiful Day
* Pride (In the Name of Love)

Which of those do u want to hear the most?

I would have to say pride - it is the perfect song for getting thousands and thousands of people on their feet (and it'd be nice to see it, after having it ruthlessly omitted from the DVD. I could rant for hours about that)

Beautiful is probably the most likely, as its already been established as a sports nthem (Olympics)

I would say Pride is a great stadium anthem so go with that. do we get to vote on which one they do or is this just a little informal Interference question?

We've got to keep in mind that this is a big opportunity for them to make a big impact on the Grammy voters, so I think that at least two, if not all of the songs, will come from ATYCLB. Also, the songs must fit with the huge superbowl crowd and audience; they must be "big" sounding songs.

As a result, I'm going with the following:

Elevation
Beautiful Day
Where The Streets Have No Name

gah! time for our twice a week discussion on what they might play at the superbowl.

I have decided that they should play...hmmm...actually, I'm not even going to speculate. I'll just have my VCR handy and see what happens.

My prediction is.......

Beautiful Day
One
Walk On (Bringing in New York City Firefighters and police officers on stage)

Bet the house on it.

If I could choose:

When I Look at the World
Out of Control
Pride

But then that's not very realistic

I agree with BD and Walk On (for sure), but I don't know about One, seems like kind of a downer song for the Superbowl. I would lean more towards Pride.

Once again, if anyone cares, One will be played; this is not speculation.

According to this article, they will play Walk On:

I think Hitman may be right.

I think they will play one. Post 9-11 at their shows it was pretty emotional. Now they are on stage at the largest sporting event in the US and on TV in front of 800 million people. I think they will do One in tribute to 9-11 victims

I would love to see One performed.

I also would love to hear In God's Country but they'll probably stick to what the non-fans would know.

1. beautiful day or elevation (i would perfer BD)
2. pride
3. walk on


...one and streets are both powerful live songs for a stadium full of U2 fans, but when it's a nation full of half drunk football fans, you need something that will keep them grooving and reflective at the same time. one is too slow and streets is not a standard get up on your feet and dance song, although U2 fans know it's really a great song for that.

I've come to appreciate Mug's insight on matters such as this.

Mug is usually accurate..
Mug will you write to me?

I think it would be cool if they play "Desire" at the tip of the heart similiar to the Elevation DVD.
