I had to stifle tears the first few times I heard Little Things.

Also, I had an emotional moment yesterday listening to One Tree Hill. Was not at all expecting that.

Yes, "One Tree Hill" is certainly a peak emotional moment.

Yes, absolutely. This is his young voice but really using his lower register. And the emotion is fantastic. Very beautiful performance.

Bono did a great job singing EBW on someone's front porch this past summer.  It's on Youtube.

It was nice but it wasn't the EMAs.

The EMAs was out of this world.

I think Bono’s voice sounds like butter on the Joshua Tree just love the richness of it.  I love the breath he takes in With or Without You.
I got some surprise feels listening to Running to Stand Still the other day.

Original of the Species, especially at its peak.  Very underrated song.

Just listened to the Dublin performance of Dirty Day and I was horrified. One of the great things about the original recording is the restraint in Bono's vocal through most of the song - the dynamic is amazing, particularly when he goes into the falsetto. Sadly, there's none of that with the latest live interpretation - it's like he's bludgeoning his way through the song with zero dynamic. It's one of my favourite songs off Zooropa and I was so excited at the prospect of it coming back into the live performance. Such a shame.

Edge should have sung it!
