I really like Larry's drumming on Gone. It's not a typical Larry drumming song that comes to mind. For some reason it does it for me.
I like his drumming on POP. Of course there is also Stories for Boys, which is great, it's the other end of the spectrum from POP.

Gotta give God part II a mention don't we?

Personally I like the drumming in Until the end of the world.

with or without you(rattle & hum) you can see how quick larry's hands are in this song.
bad-its exhusting just watching him playing this live and the fact that sometimes it can go on for 15 mins or more.
sunday bloody sunday-i know from personal experience just trying to mime along to this song for a talent show, how difficault and energetic this song is .

Thank you Spanner for nominating With or Without You from Rattle & Hum, I was begining to shake my head wondering why no one had mentioned this. The power and the pace are superb. Agree with you as well about Bad and with other posters about Please.

alright, this is my kind of post.  Top three Larry songs:
1: Until the End of the World.....This song is the ultimate U2 rocker and Larry rocks with the best of them
2: The Fly.....I like the Vertigo tour version the best (U23D to be exact)  Here, Larry shows his drumming ability--muscle combined with grace
3: Tough one so Im just gonna throw one out there...."Bad" particulary on R&H.  This song is a marathon sometimes and Larrys technique or spirit never dies down

I could go on and on since Larry is my favourite and the fact that I'm a drummer, a novice drummer at that but here is a good starting point
