Correct my dear friend. I'm yet to hear a version that comes close to that one. And I've heard a few.

Popmart's take was great.

Tough one, they're all amizing esp the rattle and hum one. Possibly though, Live Aid wins it.

Beetween these two I take the Red Rocks-

But my favorite must be the 1986-06-15 - East Rutherford. Bono have never sing the song so good on any other show

Also the the 1992-08-16 - WC version is also a good version, very special.

Of the two choices I always liked the Red Rocks version better. The Live Aid performance was special because it was Live Aid, but I wasn't hugely impressed with their performance on it's own.

Rattle And Hum version is not here, so I'm gonna choose Red Rocks version... I hate that "Shhhhhunday" of the Live Day.

no - you're wrong. It's worth a look - but the presidents version I of course also posted - the second one...

Red Rocks did it for me. Red Rocks hooked me totally. I knew I was in trouble.

Yeah, what the hell is it with the "Shhhhhunday" business at Live Aid? I've never heard it sound this way before. Perhaps Bono was using a different mike on that day, not his normal one. Who knows, but I always thought it was way out of left field given the other few hundred versions of the song I've heard. One thing for sure Larry's snare drum has never sounded so great as it does at Live Aid.

I love both, but have to go with Live Aid; have no idea why, I just think the passion Bono has on that day when performing is amazing.

Lol, the "Shhhhhunnday" doesn't annoy me nearly as much as "where the shhhheets have no name" from Boston. I can't even watch that performance in its entirety! Once the sheets make an appearance, I have to flick to the next song!

But back to SBS: Rattle and Hum just blows every other performance away (though I do love the Conspiracy of Hope and Pop versions)

Hey had just end a long tour and Bono's voice was a a little worn out...

Forced to seperate the two....ad say Red Rocks is superior. Live Aid version was amongst the poorest performances of that era IMHO.
Red Rocks pales in comparison to many other perfomances of the song.
The 00's versions have been played at too slow a tempo for my liking

From these two, definitely Red Rocks, although everyone knows that Bush's version is the best
