Who's the best at...

Who's the best at deciphering Bono's ad-libs live? There was someone who always did this...not sure but maybe Axver?

I was really hoping the first post was going to be: "...sex?"


Might still be Axver, who knows?

I used to spend a fair bit of time trying to identify snippets if that's what you mean?

Vik.

Oh, wait, he's the best at shoving women around while Bono ad-libs live. My apologies.

Guess I sortof opened it up for all manner of jokery with that lead in lol

Axver, I'll try and find the video again but it's the snippet at the end of Running To Stand Still in Tempe '87...I know the chant is En Pueblo Vencera...but he also sings an additional ad lib and I can't really make out what he's singing..take a stab at it?

Whoa, I hadn't listened to that recording in years. I'm so glad to have been reminded of it. Seriously amazing performance. This is why U2 is my favorite band.

Well, I can't improve on the Spanish, but right at the end is a bit of Isaiah 40, which we've listed on U2gigs for some time: U2 Tempe, 1987-12-19, ASU Sun Devil Stadium, Joshua Tree Tour - U2 on tour
