There are so many to choose from that it is very hard to pick.  But one that has touched me lately was Bono's version of One for the Anton Corbijn benefit this last Fall.  You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login
And Bono adds a snippet that I now love from Leonard Cohen's Anthem: "there's a crack in everything, that's how the light gets in".

This is probably a top 3 version of One in my mind, I absolutely adore it!  Great post!

As for snippets, some of my favorites are:
Blackbird in Beautiful Day
Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band in Beautiful Day
Hear Us Coming in One (even though that technically isn't a snippet)
Young Americans in Mysterious Ways
Stand By Me in Still Haven't Found
I Know It's Only Rock and Roll (But I Like It) in Vertigo
Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow in Streets
Hallelujah and Rain regardless of what song it's in
Love Will Tear Us Apart in With Or Without You
Hey-- glad to see you OAP!
Mmm, that version of One is def. in my top 3.  I lived on that song for months after the Corbijn benefit.  (till everyone was sick of listening to it with me.  :D)

What is the technical def. of a snippet? (I've always wondered....  And the follow-up: what makes the "hear me coming" not technically a snippet? )
Like your list there!  :)

We are hitting the final stretch. . . so today is BLarry Day-- come on,  you knew it was coming.
Of course Larry is the man who started it all. My favorite fun fact about Bono and Larry is that in the olden days they used to room together on the road. Make of that what you will.


Enjoy the BLarry Goodness.
