Best songs for cruising down the road?

Okay, guys, I need your help. I need to make a new U2 mixed tape for my car. As a reporter, I have to drive around quite a bit and it's nice to have great music to listen to. Post some of your favorite U2 "cruising" songs!

With this gorgeous summer weather we've been havin', I roll down the windows and blast "Wild Honey" everytime I drive.

Ooh! I hadn't even thought of that. Sounds like a great idea, and WH has such a "summery" feel to it, doesn't it?

Keep 'em coming, everyone! I can usually fit around 28 songs on a 2-hour tape.

Nope...I love that song! And I haven't listened to it in awhile either, so that would be great.

Best highway songs, and I'm a gypsy always on the road so I know! Well anyway I like driving to these:

Beautiful Day
New Year's Day
Streets
ASOH
Ultraviolet
Acrobat

Long road with lots of miles to cover at night- put on AB and crank it up, the whole thing. Watch the highway fly by!

Thats cool wertsie, I recently made a new U2 tape as well, I use an old fashioned tape deck in my car and I love to create my own selections. This last one is great, I chose a few songs from all 4 Popmart boots I have. It went like this:

Mofo, I Will Follow, Even Better Than the Real Thing, ISHFWILF, all from So Paulo 01/31/1998

Gone, Discotheque, If You Wear That Velvet Dress, all from Mxico

HMTMKMKM, Mysterious Ways, Please, Streets, Mothers of Disappeared, all from Buenos Aires 02/06/1998

Last Night on Earth, One and Mrs. Sarajevo, from Sarajevo

I loved it.

I didn't know you were a reporter. What paper do you work for? Strib? Pioneer Press?

Ooh! That was going to be mine! Really what I listen to in the summer is all of Pop...it's the best summer album, IMO.

Oh...Just our little county paper.

But it's just for the summer. In the fall I'm going back to school, even though my editor has been asking me EVERY DAY if I want to stay!

HEARTLAND - whenever i listen to it, i always feel like i'm driving on a looong road across the desert in this big American type car (like a cadillac or something) with the roof down (sort of a cabriolet touch) and U2 is in the car riding along with me!

(i know...i wish)

Here are my pics for your tape:


Zoo Station
Even Better than the real thing
Mysterious Ways
Discotheque (some may not agree)
last night on earth
Elevation
Beautiful Day
Party Girl
fire
and also if you have any remixes, I would put some in just to add some spice into the set! If you have the melon CD, I would put some remixes from that!! If you don't I can make you a copy of it!

Just have fun making your summer tape!
