Only 1 song

If U2 could only play 1 song from their catalogue, which one would they choose to best represent themselves as a band (I am thinking of this question in relation to the song they would play at the rock and roll hall of fame induction).

My choice: One

"We're one, but we're not the same. We get to carry each other."

They usually play three and air two.
I say it'll be Pride/Streets/One
or Beautiful Day/Streets/One

And they'll air Streets and One

Just kidding, I would vote for One too. It is so universal in meaning. It's still one of my favorite U2 t-shirts - one in different languages and but not the same on the bottom.

Where The Streets Have No Name.
"Mediocrity is never so dangerous as when it is dressed up as sincerity." - Søren Kierkegaard

Ian McCulloch the U2 fan:
"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."

The universal hit would be Pride, the emotional hit would be One and the new hit will be Vertigo.

I see them playing a new song in their RnR HOF set...which I'm betting will be longer than the normal set at the RnR HOF show.

mmmm ... considering this Bono´s voice I wouldn´t go with songs like Bad, Pride, With Or Without You, etc, etc.

I´d go with Running To Stand Still ( lovetown tour version )

Still Running, Still Running ...

Streets/One would be the most soaring, beautiful representation of the accessibility and warmth and universalism of U2's catalogue.

Streets. I think it sounds more like a U2 song, even if the lyrics aren't as good as One.

Well, it won't be Beautiful Day, because the band has made it clear they don't want to be in any Hall of Fame, so to them it won't be a "beautiful day."

I think One is a good choice. Or I Will Follow.

But I would pay good money to see Edge walk up to the mike, look everyone in the eye...and start intoning Numb.
