Norwegian Wood 12/5/05...a snippet?

I just want to make the case to axver and the setlist gods that monday's performance of norwegian wood had nothing to do with original of the species.
Bono had has guitar, the tech is about to take it from him so they can start the next song, and he just starts playing it randomly....it was only maybe a minute and a half or 2 minutes, but it was clearly an impromptu performance that no one else expected, so I'm not sure what you would call it.
Annnyway, it was an amazing show, they def. were having fun out there.

That's why I've chosen to list it as a proper song on U2VT. It wasn't a part of OOTS (or SYCMIOYO) at all, and is it right that Bono sung the majority of the song? By all accounts that I've read, it doesn't sound like it could be construed as a snippet.

Hey, Axver - slightly veering off topic but staying on snippets -

I don't know if this has been posted before (I can't remember seeing it) and its not on the U2VT site, but If You Wear That Velvet Dress was snippeted at the Gothenburg 29 7 05 show.

It happens right at the end of AIWIY as the COBL keyboards start up - sounds nice

Just thought I'd let you know.

Oooh, thanks so much for that! I was aware Velvet Dress had been snippeted at some point during July in Europe, but I didn't know what show and I was quite curious!

I really liked it how, at the end of the song Bono looked at The Edge and Edge giving him a thumbs up. As a 'good job Bono... for remembering (most of) the lyrics'.
