Most of The Unforgettable Fire (the song) is chills-worthy. I can't believe I forgot to mention it.

On the late 360 tour version of Beautiful Day where it goes from the "oh beautiful" to the opening notes on the guitar. It reminds me of how incredible and unexpected the emotions were when I was in the pit and they played that part at the show I was at.

The intro to Streets (in most versions), especially the Sydney ZOO TV DVD.

In Please (live) when Bono is yelling and Edge is going nuts with the guitar in that section that's not in the album version.

A Sort of Homecoming, "Just a screeeeeammmmm... oohhhhhhhh"  Yeah, you know the part.

The outro to With Or Without You, about half-way along when Larry does a fill and hits the crash symbol.

Velvet Dress, the "Sunlight fills my room" part.
Streets, the whole thing, live especially.
Miracle Drug, Edge's singing/guitar solo part "Beneath the noise".
Ultra Violet, studio version, the "I remember when we could sleep on the stooooones" part. :)

There are lots of U2 songs that can send a shiver, but the first for me is "Streets" from the Rattle and Hum video.  The red background, the intro, the silhouettes of  Adam, Edge, Larry and then there's Bono.  The hat, the coat and those boots.  I couldn't wait for the lights to go on.  Great song.  :)
