Yeah!! Streets is live much better but it depends! I love the Rattle & Hum Streets and the one from Slane Castle where it comes right after All I want is you.. The version from Chicago isn't that good!
I also love the two version of Running to stand still!!!

I love, love, LOVE the version from Slane Castle. It never fails to give me goosebumps! And Running to Stand Still is one of my all-time favorite songs, so I love any version!

XD I think we have the same favorite songs.. It's really hard to say which are the best songs because I like nearly all of them!^^ but Running to stand still is definitely one of them!!!  :)

"Mercy" is below average and I'm glad it was left off the record.  That's right, I said it.  If they ever decide to finish it, I'll reconsider my position.

Also, I love "A Man & A Woman," "One Step Closer," and "Wild Honey."  (Proceeds to board up his windows for the oncoming hurricane of abuse)
However, I can name all the albums in chronological order so I should be good to keep coming to the shows.

I also have Salome on my iPod, so that's got to count for something, right?

Hey, I like "One Step Closer" and "Wild Honey", too.....SO WHAT?! :P They're good songs.


Yes, they are very good songs.  I have just noticed the ridicule they seem to draw on this forum.

My big confession: at the moment, another Irish band is far more important and meaningful to me than U2 (or any other band); I'd go so far as to say that, for the time being at least and possibly for good, they've overtaken U2 as my favourite band.

Wow, who is it?

The Frames. I still love U2 and always will but am finding a lot more for me in a lot of ways in Glen Hansard's songs, both with The Frames and the Swell Season, at the moment. Music is like that though - sometimes you don't control what speaks to you emotionally etc.

My confessional: I've never heard them play 40 live, in the six times I've seen them. Everyone tells me what a wonderful closer this is, but I have no idea what they're talking about.

I know exactly what you mean! (Although, this is not a fault of yours). Every concert I go to I hope and wish and cross my fingers that they'll close with 40, but to no avail. Argh!

I confess:  I don't like Pride live--I think its boring.  I know, I know....  I was glad to see that it wasn't on the set list this time around (though I did miss Bullet the Blue Sky  :'()

I'm with you there, never really liked Pride and love Bullet, but I understand why they dropped it.
