Okay, it's finally ready for public consumption. My Spotify playlist:

U2 songs that were not Big Hits that non-U2 fans should listen to

Not allowed/supposed to shuffle it - the order was chosen with purpose. Tracks 4 and 5 must be played together as they are on U2's first album.

So... regarding carmaggedon. If they wanted the 405 to be out of service, why not just rename it 404 so people wouldn't find it, or 403 to keep them out?
