HTDAAB live: which will soar, which will sink?

three questions:

1. Which songs will end up as among the best live U2 songs, songs that will be considered staples (i.e. WTSHNN) for tours to come?

2. Which songs will get dropped early and never be heard from again (i.e. IGWSHA)?

3. Which song(s) will grow the most from the studio to the live setting (i.e. Please)?

COBL will be a staple. they just know it's a great song!

i'd love to see Yahweh get dropped as i hate it but that won't happen. i can't see AMAAW lasting too long.

i think a big raw live version of LAPOE will blow us away

City of Blinding Lights already soars. But live, this song will be utterly amazing. I have no doubt of that. We already know Miracle Drug and Sometimes... sound great live too.

As for which songs will sink? Probably Yahweh, and A Man and a Woman. I can see those getting played live, but not for long.

Already I think Sometimes... is a live classic. City of blinding lights could be up there too.

Vertigo, All because of you, Miracle Drug are very good.

As for others, Original... if they can Edge to play that ringing guitar in the chorus, could be beautiful live.

Love and peace or else and Crumbs could benefit the most live IMO.

As for sinking, possibly A man and a woman and Yahweh. I'm not sure One step closer will be played.

love and peace or else and yahweh will be monsters live.

a man and a woman, despite being a great song, will probably not be played live.

Love And Peace Or Else will become the noughties Bullet The Blue Sky. It has so much room to grow live beyond the constraints of the album.

I believe Yahweh will close everyshow much like a 'walk on' song. Yahweh is the perfect ending song. It just leaves you so warm inside.

1. Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own... the "sinnnnnnnng" part is as goosebump worthy as any moment in any other u2 song.

Vertigo & All Because of You have a raw power that translates very well to a live setting. They rocked @ Brooklyn.

City of Blinding Lights... we'll come back to this one.

2. Love & Peace or Else... will sink like the Titanic. Tough arangement... NOT anything like Bullet The Blue Sky and I'm still trying to figure out how people see that those two songs are anything alike. Bullet is as dark a song as U2 have ever done. That's why it plays so well in a live setting. How anyone can say the same about Love & Peace or Else... which I admit has grown on me (I hated it at first)... is beyond me.

3. The song that absolutely... 100%... will grow the most from the CD to the tour is City of Blinding Lights. When I heard them play it at the Brooklyn Bridge show, it was simply amazing. The emphasis on the CD in the opening parts of the song seem to be on the xylophone with Edge's guitar backing it up. When they played it live, all the emphasis was on the Edge's guitar... and it was very It's a great transition piece... a song to plug in between a slower song... i.e. all i want is you... and the apex of all things live U2... Where The Streets Have No Name. I can't wait to hear it again.

One Step Closer = Sink.

All it deserves in my opinion unless they change it DRASTICALLY.

I hope CFYT will sink, because I don't link the studio version (but maybe I'll change my opinion after opening night )
COBL will become one of the highlights of the shows (like Streets) and Vertigo will be a fine opener (like Elevation) followed by ABOY.
I would like to see AMAAW survive the tour in acoustic set
