Social principles

I was pleased to hear recently from a lay leader at Colonial Hills UMC in San Antonio TX who has been teaching an adult education course using the curriculum on U2 spiritual themes in the back of Get Up Off Your Knees. He tells me his pastor visited the class recently just in time for "One Tree Hill," and after getting a little more educated about U2, asked this lay leader to make her a compilation of U2 songs she could use in another class on social justice - specifically the "social principles," a phrase Methodists will recognize. (From announcement of the class: Two of the passions of John Wesley, the founder of the Methodist Church, were personal holiness and social action. Hopefully, both of these passions can still be found in most United Methodists.)
So here's Don Buelter's tracklist of U2 songs to use when teaching Christian social justice. Anyone have any additions or comments?
Sunday Bloody Sunday
North and South of the River
Peace on Earth
Walk On
Where the Streets Have No Name
In God's Country
Crumbs from Your Table
Mothers of the Disappeared
Miracle Drug
One Step Closer
When I Look at the World
If God will Send His Angels
Drowning Man
When Love Comes to Town
