Glorious by Andreas Johnson always reminds me of U2.

Ha, I was just about to look for the YouTube link to this. Everything about it is U2.

Shine by Mondo Cozmo is a killer song with atmospheric guitar similar to the Edge. It sounds like it could be from Rattle and Hum partially because of the gospel influence. It has a religious theme like many U2 songs but offers the irony (like 90s U2) of glorifying marijuana use.

I think "All You Do Is Talk" was Black Rebel Motorcycle Club's stab at doing a U2 song, right down to the "church organ" intro.

I'll Be Waiting - Michael Franti

Nearly identical to Bad: same verse chords, same key, even delay pedal use.  The only difference is the tempo is slower.  Still a great song.

Robbie Williams - Into the Silence

Very Edge-like guitar riff, among other things. Also uses several versions of the popular IVviIV progression throughout the song, which matches progressions used in Ultraviolet and The Fly.

My band recorded this song and I got a little too excited over how "90's Bono" my singer sounds during the bridge.
