"Please" is far too over-rated on this forum  ::)

Have you seen the live MTV Awards show version? I think it's from 1997? You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login NOT overrated!!

I never said that Please isn't a good song, it is just over-rated by people on this forum. It isn't anywhere near as good as the songs that I chose yet it still gets hyped up to be better than them by some people. Yes that version is incredible, but it cannot compare to the sheer passion that Bono puts into Sometimes, Adam gives us on Magnificent, Edge on Acrobat or Larry on TUF.

Please is a fantastic song, but it isn't as fantastic as some others.

I think Sometimes is UNDER rated on this forum. I like Magnificent and I voted for TUF. Off to find the singles' version of Please. :)

When I was looking, I saw that one too and I wasn't sure it was THE official one. Do you know for sure that it is? I always think of the MTV one because of Bono's hooded hoodie. Isn't that the one where they did that crazy, incredible intro w/ Mofo? Love that one too! :)

No, the one I put up is the official live video complete with Northern Ireland political images over Larry's SBS drum beat.

Please was performed at the MTV Video awards and Mofo was the European MTV awards, introduced by Dennis F'in Hopper no less.

 :P

No but I mean their performance didn't reflect the U2 of the 80s, or the pompous rock star embracing U2 of the 90s.

I'm not even sure how to describe it.
