Songs Macphisto should sing

What songs in U2's entire catalouge do you think would work with Macphisto's personality that he hasn't already done?

I think Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me would be amazing with Macphisto performing it. Maybe An Cat Dubh for the theatrical element.

I believe I read somewhere there was an idea of MacPhisto singing 11 O'Clock Tick Tock on the Zooropa tour.

That's true. Bono wrote 11 O'Clock Tick Tock to be sung like a lounge singer. Frank Sinatra and MacPhisto aren't too far apart.

If You Wear That Velvet Dress - Jools Holland version.

(I would also like to hear him sing the Doors - Light My Fire)

This might sound a little crazy but hear me out...

Beautiful Day

Imagine a fully irreverent and hammed up version of this as performed by Big Mac himself. I am sure the 00 lovers will cry sacrilidge but I think it would be brilliant.

I am imaginning it could be similar in vibe to the whole "what a night, what a show..." bit from the end of desire.

The beginning would also be great. Imagine "The heart is a bloom, shoots up through the stony ground" in that thick, posh accent. Brilliant I tell you.

So do you!

Back to the thread, I think MacPhisto would do a great version of Miami as well.

I would give my firstborn to hear that.

I second Jools Holland Velvet Dress, too.
