I'm the only one who's voted for PopMart so far??? :-[ I think that's the most moving version of all.

Totally agree with that one, stipped down to it's basic essence the song was even more moving.

R&H.  speech about Eniskillon is what puts it over the top.

Alright, Ratttle and HUm has won this round.

Next song is THE live song: Streets

My pick goes to Slane again, since there's so much soul poured into it, and the AIWIY snippet is just awesome.

Your right, I do love that version. Right after 9/11, and when the screen with the names drops and when Bono opens his jacket, I just can't help smiling. That and ZOO TV Sydney are my other favorites

Slane cause it literally stops me in my tracks, haven't actually seen the Superbowl performance... shame on me... but I love Zoo TV version as well. Mostly for Bono in the video though.

Slane.  That shot of the crowd is mindblowing.  As great as the performance at the Super Bowl was (and the context), it will always have its grade lowered because of the fake, autobot fans filling the heart.  Slane was pure U2.
