Silver and Gold

Which version of Silver and Gold do you like best? I know, they all have a certain wonderfulness that makes each of them unique, but which one is your personal preference? Let's keep it to these three; no bootleg versions. That way, all of us have heard all three versions and can make a fair comparison.

Don't really care for the Sun City version much, the b-side version is good... but it's got nothing on the live version

i said version too much there, i think i might develop an aversion to the word.

Don't think I've heard the Sun City version yet...the b-side version is okay, but I prefer the R&H version.

Although I am not a particularly big fan of any of the versions of this song, I'd have to say I believe the R&H version to be the best.

I remember uploading it to Sicy's FTP server a while back, so dig around there.

Me, I think the U2 studio version was best. Bono recorded a fantastic vocal, alternating between whispered baritones and sharp yipes, and I dig the false ending.

Yeah, that's cool.

I haven't heard the Sun City version, just the "Rattle and Hum" live version and the studio version. I like both of them.

But I think I'd have to agree and say the live version of the song from "Rattle and Hum". Anytime I hear the live versions of songs from the "Rattle and Hum" movie, it makes me think of the performances from the movie, and that makes the songs more enjoyable (it happens with studio versions, too, however...I've gotten to liking "Bullet The Blue Sky" more and more after seeing the live performance from R&H. Same goes with "Sunday Bloody Sunday").

Well, I know that Bono prefers the Studio version (he said so in an interview).
