Sorry to bump this...

But it's been almost 20 years as the curious cat suddenly got me wondering:

1. Was (above) the single version ever released in the US?

BTW, this answers the question another has posed: The last time U2 were cool? Right there is your answer.

Best: I'd agree with most of the videos listed before. 'Numb' and 'Lemon' are particular favourites.

Worst: For some reason, despite the (now) classic appeal to it, I can't stand the video for 'Pride'...something in Bono's eyes makes me cringe...

Best: Beautiful Day, maybe Vertigo

Worst: Magnificent (I still cannot understand how they thought pulling sheets off of buildings would make a compelling video)

Easy:

Best - "I Sill haven't Found ..." (Old-school Vegas version)

Worst - "I'll Go Crazy, If I Don't Go Crazy ..." (It's a cartoon for Pete's sake.)

Best: Lemon and Stay
Worst: Gloria

What, "Gloria" worst?

Adam's Phyllis Diller wig, stacked speakers with electrical cables running through the water to a drifting barge and an early sighting of Bono's pubescent mullet?

Blasphemy!

Early U2 Dublin at its absolute finest!

I can't watch the video for EBTTRT without feeling sick! By far my favourite is the Fly though, really captured the feel of the song.

I don't watch videos but the live performance video of Please is very good.

I love the video for I'll Go Crazy because it's a cartoon! I think it's creative and cute and they should have done that more often. I also like that it tells a story separate from the actual song, and the song is just the background music.

Best: LEMON! or Streets
Worst: I Will Follow, Magnificent, I couldn't finish watching Get On Your Boots because t was an eyesore

I've never seen the American version of Stuck and I guess that's a good thing. But what do people think about the other version? I find it hilarious.

Agree with this.  I'll give extra credit to the bar version of One, just because Bono looks so damn good.

Best: Vertigo

Worst: This one is not even close, the US version of Stuck in the football stadium.

Worst...Sweetest Thing...love the song, hate the vid.
Best...maybe The Fly? Maybe One, either version. Maybe all of them, except for Sweetest Thing and Stuck In a Moment...football version. Numb is great, but that's only because I'm an Edge-girl.

Best: sweetest thing

Worst: every breaking wave. The cinematography is excellent but it relates to the song in now way. They should've done a propervideo. Not used the short movie
