I liked Stuck in a Moment and The First Time acoustic. Walk On was OK, though, as you said, electric was better. Aside from that, I can't think of anything they did well acoustically.
I can't decide if Stuck acoustic was better, just because the song is so crappy that I don't care for any version of it in existence. The First Time was good, but, well ... it's not like the studio version is some serious electric rocker like Desire.

It's so much easier to name songs utterly butchered by the acoustic treatment. I'm especially thinking of Stay, SATS, and TGBHF here. Dear God, those sucked.

I wasn't saying they were similar! I was saying they should've put that in instead of SAMTM at your favourite setlisted show.

Axver, do you have the link to your alternate U2 history? I'm trying to finish mine and want to compare.

Oh, I thought you were, since some people have argued that SAMTM is an early LIB, lyrically.

They should have played Acrobat. It originated at a New Zealand Lovetown soundcheck.

Anyway, Axver, it's your chance to destroy me in posts. Because I've gotta get going for a few hours, actually. To, you know, dream it all up again or some bullshit like that.

Just a few lines. To tell you the truth, I forget which. He snippeted Heartland over the start of Streets on both the 13th and 16th of October 1989, but I don't listen to either show much as the boots are of unimpressive quality.

I don't see the connection. But yeah, should've just played Acrobat AND Love Is Blindness to end the show.
