What songs are played prior to U2 coming out on stage?

Please post the songs that are played over the PA before U2 comes out on stage.

Not sure if it will vary from show to show but it would be nice to have a list in one spot.

For Vancouver 5/14:

The Cars - Gary Neuman
Flock of seagulls - I run
Joy Division - Love will tear us apart
The Clash - Should I stay or should I go

Baby I Love You by the Ramones just before Beat on The Brat (walk out/entrance music) according to twitter, was also available in bkgrd during Q104 stream. Those are the only two I can confirm since they were on radio stream.

Beat on the Brat is the walk-out song with elements of Discothèque and Even Better Than the Real Thing.

A few other ones as seen in the setlist party thread:
Quote:
Gary Numan - Cars
A Flock of Seagulls - I Ran (So Far Away)
Joy Division - Love Will Tear Us Apart
This article also mentions a few more:

The pre-show music was all vintage punk and New Wave: Most of Talking Heads: 77, the Jam’s “Town Called Malice,” Simple Minds’ “Celebrate”

Holy shit, I used to have that CD!

I loved that one just because it was basically my favorite Donna Summer song:

But after Phoenix 2 and the Ireland equality vote, they played Macklemore's Same Love.
