What other POP song would you have chosen for the Vertigo Tour????

Friends ,

Since they weren`t happy with Discotheque and Mofo didn`t show up but was ( rumored? ) rehearsed , what other POP song would you have chosen for the Vertigo Tour?

You may pick only one Pop song.
( excluding Discotheque and Mofo offcourse )

Mine would be : Last Night On Earth.
I would`ve put it in the setlist in place of Zoo Station at multiple shows.
The 1st night Zoo and second LNOE
( Imagine : after the Baby-head screaming Mama you hear the intro of LNOE and Adam`s bass comes in )

Offcourse the obvious choose would be Please or Gone.
But both showed up at the Elevation tour so I go with LNOE.
( But they do need to bring back Gone the next tour )

Now what POP song would you choose.

Cheers ,

they should play MIAMI everytime they're in Miami...

I would've loved that in the slot-machine thing the McPhisto logo would've appeared and they launch into HMTMKMKM... followed by LEMON or Mofo

MOFO, they have rehearsed it. I remember all those setlist partys on the 3rd leg and the disappointments they didn't get to play it.

Well I recall Edge saying in U2 by U2 that Gone always sounded better stripped down to accoustics to maybe that would've been nice.

Considering the human rights and the political angle of the tour, Please.

Please would have fit perfectly in the second half of the main set, but not playing Gone at all should be considered a crime.
"Mediocrity is never so dangerous as when it is dressed up as sincerity." - Søren Kierkegaard

Ian McCulloch the U2 fan:
"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."

the other would be the album version. i kid, i kid...pop is one of my favourite U2 albums.

i'm gonna say discotheque, cuz they did an awesome version during elevation. i would've loved for them to have played it during the vertigo show i saw. would've been nice to have something to wake everyone up with

Last Night on Earth was sorely lacking on this tour and the Elevation tour. It's the one song that really, really needs to come back out of the Pop songs.
