Just down the line... Zoo Station!

Every now and then I'll realise how much I love Zoo Station. I mean, I know I automatically love it because it kicks off my favourite album in the world ever, but on its own merit it's a great song! I love the fuzziness and the unclear vocals and the guitar and the lyrics... So basically, everything. I was really glad they played it this tour, having never seen them live before!

Zoo Station is just something, I can't describe it... it has that big stadium feel, and so much space in it, I like hearing the song every time, preferably the live versions for the drums and guitar. Bono's vocals live on this track rock.

Zoo Station is my favorite U2 song. It pwns the world's head (crust?) off.
It cracks open live and even more pours out of it, if possible. Lovelovelove.

Zoo Station really gets me for some reason. It's always been one of my faves and I was psyched when I heard it was on the setlist this time around. Unfortunately they didn't play it at any of the 5 shows I went to! But when the DVD came out I ran out to buy it just for Zoo Station...it still gave me chills. Just a fabulous song.

Uh huh, and notice how the Chicago crowd were really getting into it

Seriously though it is just an awesome song. Best U2 concert opener without doubt!!!

I don't care about what the crowd is doing on the DVD so I didn't notice.

I admit the song wasn't played the same as it was during Zoo TV but IMO it still rocked.

that track sums up what was, for me, the best period for U2, between the release of The Fly and just after Passengers. The golden summer of '93 and their stunning Wembley concers, will always live in my heart and the opening sonic booms of zoo station will always be the soundtrack

I just clicked on the link and downloaded it. Try again, when the timer counts down the link will be covered by a popup window. Close that window and you should be able to click on the link. I've only just uploaded it, there is no way it could be exceeded. I'll try to upload the mpeg later.

Cheers

I love Zoo Station. It was the perfect opener for Achtung Baby, the album where they'd 'dreamt it all up again'. "I'm ready. Ready for what's next"

Zoo Station

That song is amazing beyond words. I love putting on Achtung Baby, and hearing those first amazing riffs rip through my speakers.

Love Zoo Station, the opening riff... the lyrics, Edge's chiming guitar in the chorus.
