Opening to Streets live, all the time.

I'm sure there are more I can't think of. Maybe the "Don't turn around..." part of Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses... the "if the mountains should crumble" part of TUF... the "oh's" in WOWY....

wow, what is that, a master's thesis?

The Unforgettable Fire's keyboard effects and a lot of other tunes but I'm too lazy to write   :P

I guess he gets chills pretty easy

......yea apparently. or am i to picky that basically only one part of one song gives me serious chillbumps? i agree with Droo thou, the intro to Streets does to.

I don't get chills that easily, I just really feel the emotion that the band put into all of the examples I gave. Maybe it might seem over-the-top butthat's just how U2 make me feel  ;)

The rap during Moment of Surrender live (especially the Wide Awake in Europe version.)

Very true. I was at the show, actually and definitely felt that "chill down the spine" at that moment (of surrender). Intense.

Also, to me, there is this note and tone Bono hits in One when he sings "same" in "do you feel the same". I'm pretty sure he couldn't make it like that again if he wanted to. That's the sort of thing you have to catch "in the moment".

Slane Castle...

Specifically, the intro of Streets from AIWIY and after Bono completes his lap of the stage.
Out of Control, after the little interlude where Bono talks about the band and thanks the fans and then bursts back into song and the whole crowd goes crazy and the camera pans up. So good.
