I wonder if Bruce rolls his eyes every time Bono starts with America is an idea

A highly underrated part of the rock and roll 25th anniversary show was when Bruce cut Bono's rambling speech off before I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For.

I was there behind the stage. We could see the speech was on the teleprompter. It went on... and on...

I am eagerly awaiting those so I can add them to my Pearl Jam (both regular and zombie versions) and Eddie Van Halen Funko Pops.

Same. Also enjoyed watching Jagger Mick it up before going out on for “Stuck”

Songs of Surrender - New album discussion - 6

After a decent break I just listened to SOE. I still firmly believe if you removed GOOYOW and American Soul it is a fantastic album.

LIAWHL, LOH, SOL, RFD, Landlady, Blackout, LIBTAIIW, Book of Your Heart and of course Little Things. It’s actually really good.

I think this running order really works

1 - LIAWHL
2 - LOH
3 - TBT
4 - Landlady
5 - The Blackout
6 - SOL
7 - RFD
8 - Book of Your Heart
9 - Love is Bigger
10 - Ordinary Love
11 - Little Things
12 - There is a Light

Songs of Surrender predictions - some likely, some unlikely

- album will be a mix of stripped back acoustic renditions and more radical reinterpretations (different arrangements, keys, etc). All changes will serve idea the band has that these are solid songs, at their core
- first single will be Out of Control, acoustic
- all albums up to and including NLOTH will be represented, 1 song from each

My best guess tracklist:
Out of Control
Tomorrow
Drowning Man
A Sort of Homecoming
Still Haven't Found
All I Want Is You
So Cruel
The Wanderer
Your Blue Room
Staring at the Sun
When I Look at the World
All Because of You
Moment of Surrender

I heard they completely redid the lyrics for Ordinary Love, centered around the OJ trial and they changed the title to "Ordinary Glove".

I think this track list is a good prediction (especially Moment of Surrender, which they apparently rehearsed acoustically for the I&E tour, and Bono said recently it should've been the lead single on NLOTH)

Only thing I'd swap out is 'All I Want Is You' for 'With or Without You', because they played the latter acoustically at the Ukraine show, they rarely play WOWY acoustically , and something about the performance gave me the impression it was a little more thought through than just 'pick up an acoustic guitar and play whatever'. Struck me as one they might be considering for SoS.

good point. You could include Walk On too by that logic, though I listed WILATW because Bono recently made a point of citing that one in talking about songs of theirs that are under the radar
