How do you like Kingdom compared to the other intro songs ?

U2's used various "walk out" songs on the tours before : the George Bush rap/Bono's wailing on Zoo TV, Popmuzik on Popmart, Elevation remix on Elevation, Arcade Fire's Wake up/"Everyone" (a pre-recorded Gavin Friday, I think) on Vertigo and now Kingdom closely following David Bowie's Space Oddity.

How do they rank for you ?

I gotta say Wake Up was really awesome, but Kingdom really is my favourite. Just the fact that when we first heard it we didn't have a freakin' clue whatever the hell we were listening to!
When you go to a show, most of the stadium actually sings along! That's really cool.

Pop Muzik... well... it's just special. MOFO!

Don't worry baby, it's gonna be all right. Uncertainty can be a guiding light...

I was like WTF, what is that.

But I like it a lot, a whole new sound. Sing yourself on down the street, sing yourself right off your feet...

I loved the "Ode To Joy" Zoo TV intro (From the Sydney DVD), but i'd have to say my favourite is Pop Muzik. The segue into Mofo is just perfect.

In terms of opening sequences, PopMart's was mind-boggling, and the Zooropa/Zoomerang legs were very close behind. But in terms of the actual intro songs, my favorite are Wake Up and Kingdom. I really do love Arcade Fire, so I should probably wait to hear all of Kingdom before judging between the two.

I didn't hear Kingdom on bootlegs before I saw the show so I didn't know which of the pre-show songs it was. Good to know it was the one with the hypnotic "soon......soon.....soon".

Zoo TV Zooropa leg every time in my view. The most brilliant intro to a show in rock music history.

I think the fact that we didn't know what it was, and it's a new U2 track, and is just plain awesome makes Kingdom win. ZooTV and Popmart were also quite awesome.

I like Kingdom, but Wake Up was my favorite, followed by Influx mix of Elevation and Popmuzik

I don't think they will ever top the Pop Muzik intro. It was just about perfect for the tour.

I like the song, but I think it is far behind the other four tours we are discussing.

1. Pop Muzik
2. Zooropa/Ode To Joy
3. Everyone
4. Influx Remix
5. Kingdom

ZooTV is untouchable. Pop Muzik--->Mofo is the only thing that comes close. Cool that the band was gutsy enough to use an unreleased song though.
