The U2 Mixtape

Well, in honour of today's festivities, I thought that I would adapt a meme that has been circulating on several blogs (Janny's blog, A Mandolyn and Ky, Queen of West Procrastination) to celebrate THE concert. So I present to you my mixtape, U2 style (along with the album from which the track is taken).

1) A favorite political track. U2, "Bullet The Blue Sky" (Rattle and Hum) and "Sunday Bloody Sunday (Under A Blood Red Sky) (tie)
2) One of those tracks that make you dance on the dancefloor no matter what. "Discotheque" (Pop)
3) The song you’d use to tell someone you love them. "All I Want Is You" (Rattle and Hum)
4) A song that has made you sit down and analyze its lyrics. "Until The End of the World" (Achtung Baby)
5) A song that you like, that a two year old would like as well. "Sweetest Thing" (Best of 1980-1990)
6) A song that gives you an energy boost. "Elevation" (ATYCLB)
7) A song that you and your grandparents (would probably) like. "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" (Joshua Tree)
8) A song that you really liked when you were 14-16, and still really like now. "Hold Me Thrill Me Kiss Me Kill Me" (Batman Forever soundtrack)
9) A sad song that would be in the soundtrack of the movie about your life. "Bad" (Unforgettable Fire)
10) A peppy song that would start the opening credits of the movie about your life. "Even Better Than The Real Thing" (Achtung Baby)
11) A good song from a genre of music that no one would guess that you liked. "Lady With The Spinning Head (Extended Mix)" (Achtung Baby B-side, electronica)
12) A song that you think should have been playing when you were born. "Beautiful Day" (ATYCLB)
13) A favorite artist duo collaboration. "When Love Comes To Town" (with B.B. King, Rattle and Hum)
14) A favorite song that you completely disagree with (politically, morally, commonsenically, religiously etc.) "Stuck In A Moment That You Can't Get Out Of" (ATYCLB)
15) The song that you like despite the fact your IQ level drops several points every time you listen to it. "Mysterious Ways" (Achtung Baby) (This was the best I could think of)
16) Your smooth song, for relaxing. "Where The Streets Have No Name" (Joshua Tree)
17) A song you would send to someone you hate or are mad at. "With Or Without You" (Joshua Tree)
18) A favorite track from an outfit considered a "super-group." "I Will Follow" (Boy), "Vertigo" (HDTAAB) (tie)
19) A song that makes you reminsce about good times with a family member. "Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own" (HDTAAB) (not because of a direct experience, but because this is a song Bono wrote about his own father which makes me think of my father.)
20) Your favorite song at this moment in time. "City of Blinding Lights" (HDTAAB)
