All studio recordings, hopefully a good way to introduce friends to the best band on earth. You can even make this yourself. Perfect for an 80-minute CD-R.

Where The Streets Have No Name
Mysterious Ways
Pride (In The Name Of Love)
Walk On
City Of Blinding Lights
I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For
Vertigo
With Or Without You
Miracle Drug
Angel Of Harlem
Unchained Melody
Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own
Elevation (Tomb Raider Remix)
Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me
All Because Of You
One
Original Of The Species
MLK

Elevation just plain sucks. Put in something like Eleven O Clock instead.

Thats a very good list with one glaring omission. I can't believe you left out Beautiful Day. I would change that for one of ABOY, Angel of Harlem or Original of the species.

Also i would have the single version of Walk On instead, which to me is an improvement on the outstanding album version.

I would substitute Beautiful Day for Elevation, if this is for someone you are trying to convert. But that's a pretty good list.

TOO MUCH HTDAAB why ? Original of the Species is the worst U2 crap I've ever heard. Those "do do do do " really bother me . No other Bono's singing upset me at that level of angry and shame.

Unchained Melody ? No, you are putting out quintessential songs like Please, Stay, Bad or Sunday Bloody Sunday !!!

My compilation would be:

1- Where The Streets
2- Pride ( in the name of love )
3- Even Better Than The Real Thing
4- Mysterious Ways
5- One
6- Sunday Bloody Sunday
7- I Still Haven't Found
8- Stay
9- Lemon
10-Desire
11-New Year's Day
12-Bad
13-Running To Stand Still
14-I Will Follow
15-Discotheque
16-Please
17-With Or Without You

Heheh, I just try to be unique, and I love it.

Also, even though it would be stupid to take it out, as it's probably one of U2's most popular songs, I'd take Pride out just by personal choice. I'd ditch Pride and put something like Bullet The Blue Sky in instead.

Way way way too many songs from the ATYCLB/HTDAAB era.

To put songs like ABOY, Elevation, Miracle Drug, and Vertigo on a compilation like this when you're missing songs like Sunday Bloody Sunday, New Year's Day, Bad, All I Want Is You, Until The End Of The World, The Fly, Stay(Faraway, So Close), Staring At The Sun, Please, etc etc, is to give an inaccurate representation of what U2's music is really all about.

And what is Unchained Melody doing here??

Great compilation, but my first thought was also, where's "Beautiful Day?"
