An intro to U2 (for a friend)

Just emailed about 60 U2 songs to a friend I grew up with, (birthday gift).

I'd always thought he didn't care much for U2, but when I last visited him a few months back, he had some well-known U2 on his iPod, and showed interest in learning more about them.

He admits he used to be less interested, and he still sort of thinks a lot of their material sounds "the same." He later said that was probably due to Bono's distinctive voice.

So I picked the songs to show some variety, and to show him how good some "lesser known" songs are...

I Will Follow
Out of Control
The Electric Co.

Like A Song...
The Refugee
Two Hearts Beat as One
Drowning Man

The Unforgettable Fire
A Sort of Homecoming
Wire

Red Hill Mining Town
In God's Country
One Tree Hill

Angel of Harlem
Desire
All I Want is You

Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)
Unchained Melody
Spanish Eyes
The Three Sunrises
The Sweetest Thing

Acrobat
So Cruel
The Fly
Tryin to throw your arms around the world
Ultra Violet
Until the End of the World
Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses

Stay (Faraway... So Close!)
Lemon
Daddy's Gonna Pay for Your Crashed Car
Some Days are better than others

Do You Feel Loved
Mofo
Gone
Staring at the Sun
If God Will send His Angels
Last Night on Earth
Please

Electrical Storm (2 versions)
Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me
Lady with the Spinning Head
Salome
Miss Sarajevo
Your Blue Room

Beautiful Day
Elevation
In A Little While
Kite

A Man and a Woman
City of Blinding Lights

tsk.

I am close to liking it better than the original. Don't know why so many u2 fans are intent in ripping on this version.

I just wish they had extended the ending and added the extra lyrics Bono always does on the live version.

Make it easy and give your friend a copy of 'Achtung Baby' and tell him to listen to it all way through on headphones...

There's more to the story... i didn't want to bore you with, but i wanted to also fill in the better known songs he doesn't have on the iPod...
