I love Zoo TV Live from Sydney. It's my U2 bible. Upon viewing that dvd aged 18 back in 2009 it was the experience that made me see the light and go 'Wow - these guys are fucking incredible!'.

But WOWY is one of the songs from that performance I seek out the least. I don't know why. So so many people love that performance and yet I always felt that it was very much in the shadows of other great performances such as Streets, RTSS, Zoo Station, EBTTR, Dirty Day. Maybe it's the big build up ending that I'm not fussed about? Maybe it's because it follows Lemon (LEMON!!!) and precedes THAT finale of Love Is Blindness and Can't Help Falling In Love. Or maybe it's because every time I search anything to do with WOWY on youtube some moronic dickwad in the comments can't resist saying 'Ross and Rachel's song'. Either way - I probably vastly underrate it.

For what it's worth, my own preferred WOWY performance is the Glastonbury 2011 performance. Absolute belter and rewatching clips of that gig makes me think of it much better than when I first watched it live on the BBC.

So, better than most of Bono's lyrics as of late then?

I prefer that other mix of Blackout. It's less hollow sounding.

4. It's going to go viral on Youtube/Last.fm, etc.
5. It's their best single since (insert BD/Vertigo).

That's two!
