Your favorite U2 for each letter of the alphabet...

This is simple...choose your favorite U2 song for each letter of the album...i.e., your favorite U2 song starting with the letter A, your favorite U2 song starting with the letter B, etc. You can see what songs are under what letter by looking in the lyrics section of u2.com here

I'll go first:

A: All I Want Is You
B: Bullet The Blue Sky
C: City Of Blinding Lights
D: Drowning Man
E: Even Better Than The Real Thing
F: Fire
G: Gone
H: Hold Me Thrill Me Kiss Me Kill Me
I: I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For
J: J.Swallo
K: Kite
L: Love Is Blindness
M: Mofo
N: New Year's Day
O: One Tree Hill
P: Please
Q: NA
R: Running To Stand Still
S: Sunday Bloody Sunday
T: The Unforgettable Fire
U: Until The End Of The World
V: Van Dieman's Land
W: With Or Without You
X: NA
Y: Your Blue Room
Z: Zooropa

If we're just using this list (aka no Mercy and The Fly is a "T" song )...

A: All I Want Is You
B: Bad
C: City Of Blinding Lights
D: Discotheque
E: Electrical Storm
F: Fast Cars
G: Gloria
H: Hold Me Thrill Me Kiss Me Kill Me
I: I Will Follow
J: J.Swallo
K: Kite
L: Lemon
M: Mofo
N: New Year's Day
O: One Tree Hill
P: Please
R: Running To Stand Still
S: Stay (JUST beat out Sometimes. This one killed me.)
T: The Unforgettable Fire
U: Until The End Of The World
V: Vertigo
W: Where the Streets Have No Name
X: Xanax and Wine
Y: Yahweh
Z: Zooropa

..Alright, so Xanax wasn't on the U2.com list, sue me.

And just for reference, I much prefer Mercy to Mofo (even though Mofo's a beast of a song), but I wanted to only include songs that were officially released.

we all know a song from U2's next album will be called

Quantum Love from Mars

to fill the hole in the Q, and a great song beginning with J, so we don't have to say J. Swallo

Re: Your favorite U2 for each letter of the alphabet...

I like Johnny Swallow, but I'll go with Jesus Christ instead. Also, any song that starts with "The" shouldn't be a "t" song. (other than The Three Sunrises)


A: All I Want Is You
B: Bad
C: Crumbs From Your Table (probably prefer COBL, but just heard it too much lately)
D: Desire
E: Even Better Than The Real Thing
F: The First Time
G: Gloria
H: Heartland (tough call between this and HMTMKMKM)
I: In God's Country
J: Jesus Christ
K: Kite (by default)
L: Lady With The Spinning Head (tough call with Luminous Times)
M: Mysterious Ways (close call with Miss Sajajevo)
N: New Year's Day
O: October
P: Please
Q: -
R: Running To Stand Still
S: Salome (close call with Surrender, good letter!)
T: Tomorrow
U: Until The End Of The World (best letter ever!!, love both UF and UV)
V: Van Dieman's Land
W: Where The Streets Have No Name
X: Xanax and Wine (by default)
Y: Your Blue Room
Z: Zooropa (love 'em both, Zooropa today, maybe ZS tomorrow)

I can't believe so many people prefer Vertigo to Van Dieman's Land.
