A couple months back we did a regular draft format where you could only pick a song after 3 other people posted. Then we took all our picks and created a setlist it was a fun exercise. It's too tough to do a Snake Draft unless everybody agreed on a set time to do it.

This time I just want to see the 'market/stock price' for a song live based on everybody's opinion. If the starting point is IWF = $10 (I've seen it at every show I have attended). Here are my prices for live tracks based on the price.

Vertigo = $15
Stuck in a Moment = $1
Bad = $55
Reach Around = $90
Mofo = $125
God Part II = $190
Acrobat = $450
Grace = $0.13

I prefer Rotisserie fantasy baseball because I like the auction part of it. We should do a Rotisserie style draft rather than a regular style draft. We could cap the draft at 10 people who each get 24 songs, for a total of 240 songs. Each person gets a certain amount of money, like say $300 for a ticket and then the 10 people bid on each song that comes up at a certain time each day. You could choose 10 songs a day to bid on. All someone would have to do is create a list of songs and choose 10 people to participate.

Could you guys make a separate thread for U2 fantasy setlist or whatever? It's kind of a cool concept, but give it its own thread.

Didn't think two posts warranted a whole new thread, I just wanted to share a concept, but I'll probably start a new thread if we take this farther.

Well, it carried over from the last thread, and of course I meant if you were going to do some drawn-out thing, I thought it warranted its own thread.

Usually the two of us are fighting over Global Warming now we're pricing songs.

I started on the last thread that a ticket could become more or less valuable if you knew the setlist. IE less valuable if you had Stuck instead of One Tree Hill. How much would you pay to a base ticket price if you knew you were going to get a gem.

I'd cash out my 401K for ASOH, Discotheque, Mofo and Gone.

I know we've moved on, but I admit to mild trolling with the ATYCLB comments from before. Don't take me so seriously. ;-)

That said, it's still, easily, the most universally beloved U2 album since 1992.

That's not particularly an achievement, given either company or context or both.

As they were, pretty much unarguably, the biggest band in the world again it was an achievement.
No amount of U2 2000 bashing on Interference will change that.

Actually, there were bigger bands commercially in 2000. U2 being the biggest band in the world back then is hardly "unarguable" and if one thinks that, maybe one should stop listening to Bono that much. It's just that those other bands were pretty much awful and didn't have U2's longevity.

Like Outkast...

That line comes solely from that Bono comment about reapplying for the top job.

There were also bigger acts commercially in the late 80s and definitely during the early 90s
but I don't think anyone would mistake any other band than U2 being the biggest band in the world back then either.
Bono does talk a lot of hyperbole, but that doesn't mean that once in a while, if only by accident, he is right.
