If you had to construct a single CD "Best Of U2", what would you put on it?

You have one 80 minute CD. Make the most of it. Your all time favorite tracks, not necessarily "the hits" or even singles. Live versions acceptable.

Here's my recently constructed CD:

1. Hawkmoon 269 (Live 12.18.89)
2. Running To Stand Still (Live 12.26.89)
3. The Unforgettable Fire
4. Elvis Presley and America
5. Heartland
6. Tomorrow
7. October
8. Bad (Live WAIA)
9. Ultraviolet (Light My Way)
10. The Fly
11. Discotheque
12. Lemon
13. With Or Without You (Live RnH)
14. Walk To The Water
15. All I Want Is You

80 minutes of pure bliss. Yeah, weighted heavily in U2's "2nd phase" (84-89) so I did shortchange Achtung (and Stay was the last song eliminated). But I love some of the late 80s ballads, what can I say? WOWY version is high quality and short, hence its inclusion over Chicago 4.29.87 or Dublin 12.30.89 versions which are superior.

Thoughts?
