1:58-2:08 of Until the End of the World when the guitar sweeps across both channels as it enters the guitar solo.

DISCOTHEQUE: That raging opening guitar riff.
STREETS: In live versions, when the white lights light up the venue.
ZOOROPA: The transition from "...without that ring of confidence..." to "And I have no compass..."

I think my fave few seconds of a u2 song...is in the studio version of RHMT, when the "we wait all day, for night to come and it comes, like a hunterchild".
I just adore the subtle brass section, in the background, at the "like a hunterchild" part. It gives me goosebumps

You ask me to enter to enter
Then you make me crawl
And I can't be holding on
To what you got
When all you got is hurt

so so many.....
I love Edge's rif in COBL starting at 2:54-3:07 that goes along with "can you see the beauty inside of me? what happened to the beauty I had inside of me?"

One Tree Hill when the rhythm really kicks in :30-:45

and Edge's easing into the end of WOWY from 4:05 on has fed me my entire life, it seems!

Around the 3:55 mark in "11 O'Clock Tick Tock" on Under a Blood Red Sky where Bono's voice is rising as he is singing "Call out..you better call out..." at the same time Edge is soloing.  It really sounds like Bono's voice and Edge's soloing merge into one sound.

Quite a few choices I know but I can't help but LOVE this band! (Also, in chronological order! :D :D :D)

I Will Follow - everything from "your eyes make a circle" onwards
Another Time, Another Place - 3:10-3:24 (Edge's solo erupts at this point!)
Gloria - THAT intro  8)
Fire - 2:01-2:16
Tomorrow - when the song explodes at 2:58 onwards
New Year's Day - when the momentum builds towards the solo from 3:15 onwards
11 O'Clock Tick Tock (UABRS) - 3:53 onwards... what a solo from Edge!
A Sort Of Homecoming - Bono's vocal between 3:50-4:05
Where The Streets Have No Name - Edge's outro riff from 4:50 onwards
With Or Without You - can I say the entire song?  ;D
Silver And Gold - "OK Edge, play the Blues!"
Angel Of Harlem - 2:00-2:18
Heartland - 3:53-4:00
Even Better Than The Real Thing - everything from "we're free to fly the crimson sky" onwards
Ultraviolet (Light My Way) - 3:15-3:48
Acrobat - when Edge's solo explodes into life at 2:53... AMAZING!  8)
Stay (Faraway, So Close!) - 1:41-2:01
Do You Feel Loved - 4:05-4:20
Last Night On Earth - 2:41-3:10
Gone - 3:08-3:41
Walk On - 3:50-4:05
Kite - "I'm a man, I'm not a child"... goosebumps every single time
When I Look At The World - 3:00-3:20... one of U2's strongest bridges ever
The Ground Beneath Her Feet - 2:02 mark onwards - faultlessly stunning, one of my favourite pieces of U2 music ever
Miracle Drug - 2:45-3:15 - possibly the best section of Edge ever put on record
Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own - 3:01 onwards
City Of Blinding Lights - 4:10-4:23
All Because Of You - the opening 30 seconds... the greatest intro of all time  8)
Crumbs From Your Table - the final minute of the song, another masterpiece of U2 music
Original Of The Species - 3:08-3:40
No Line On The Horizon - 2:11-2:50
Magnificent - 0:46-1:15
Get On Your Boots - the entire "let me in the sound" part
Stand Up Comedy - the whole song for me but especially 1:00-1:21
Fez - Being Born - 1:34-1:54
Breathe - 3:29-3:53
Cedars Of Lebanon - "choose your enemies carefully" onwards
The Miracle (Of Joey Ramone) 3:12-3:26
California (There Is No End To Love) 3:00-3:17
Volcano - 2:16-2:38
Raised By Wolves - the chorus is just EPIC! Absolutely love it!
This Is Where You Can Reach Me Now - when the song breaks down at 3:46 for the bridge and then picks up again at 4:26 is mega!
The Troubles - when you start to hear Edge's guitar becoming ever present at 4:09 before breaking into his solo at 4:18 is simply sublime

The last 10 seconds of Streets are amazing. And at the moment I'm loving the end of the 'Feeeeel' chorus in Vertigo when what sounds like added synth dissolves and they crunch into the 2nd verse. 0:50-1:00.

It's not ten seconds, but the final verse of Silver and Gold (studio version) contains what I think is Bono's best ever vocal, from 2:54 to 3:28.

I aslo find the French Horn part in White as Snow very moving. I had tears in my eyes the first few times i heard the song. It reminds me a lot of the beautiful brass section, in The Pogues version of The Band Played Waltzing Matilda
