U2 Live Or Studio Poll

Here is a listing of 30 U2 songs.Please tell me if you prefer the live versions of these songs or the studio version.I wont list NLOTH songs because most to all of us have not had a chance to hear them live in person yet.I'll give my thoughts first:

1.Sunday Bloody Sunday-Live
2.New Years Day-Live
3.Unforgettable Fire-Studio
4.A Sort of Homecoming-Studio
5.Bad-Both
6.Pride-Both
7.Where The Streets Have No Name-Much Better Energy Live
8.With or Without You-Studio
9.I Still Havent Found What Im Looking For-Studio
10.Bullet The Blue Sky-Live (particularly ZOO TV)
11.Running To Stand Still-Live(particularly ZOO TV)
12.Desire-Studio
13.Angel Of Harlem-Both
14.Zoo Station-Both
15.One-Live
16.The Fly-Both
17.Mysterious Ways-Live
18.Daddys Gonna Pay For Your Crashed Car-Live
19.Lemon-Live
20.Dirty Day-Much More Kick Live
21.Discotheque-Studio(Vertigo version pretty good though)
22.Mofo-Studio a little better
23.Gone-Both
24.Please-Live
25.Beautiful Day-Studio
26.Elevation-Live(Vertigo Version Better)
27.Kite-More Passion Live
28.Vertigo-Works better live
29.Sometimes-Both
30.Original of the Species-Studio(with exception to Milan version)

So in closing I think we can make a case that U2 is both a great studio band and a great live band.

I'd have to go with live versions for most songs - possible exceptions are Original of the Species & Sometimes. IMO, a lot of the Bomb songs didn't translate as well live as previous albums' songs have (COBL, Vertigo & Fast Cars are the exception).

I'm surprised you went with studio for Desire. For me, Lovetown version of that kicks the studio version's arse ten times over - I wished they'd stuck with that version live rather than the stripped down version of later tours

Also WOWY - live with "Shine like stars" verse =

1.Sunday Bloody Sunday-Live
2.New Years Day-Live
3.Unforgettable Fire-Studio

8.With or Without You-Live up to 1992
9.I Still Havent Found What Im Looking For-Studio, except with Exodus or IALW snippet.

13.Angel Of Harlem-Lovetown live
14.Zoo Station-Meh... live.
15.One-Live until the Vertigo Tour

17.Mysterious Ways-Live, but only in 92-93.
18.Daddys Gonna Pay For Your Crashed Car-Live
19.Lemon-This song's brilliant enough that it would sound great on the surface of the sun.
20.Dirty Day-Live.
21.Discotheque-Any version
22.Mofo-Live
23.Gone-Live
24.Please-Live
25.Beautiful Day-Vertigo Tour.
26.Elevation-None.

28.Vertigo-Live and only live.
29.Sometimes-Skip, until Vertigo Leg Five
30.Original of the Species-Killhurtz mix.
