Numb - Such a cool video, I could watch it over and over.

Beautiful Day - One of the best videos ever, IMO.

Discotheque - The Edge dancing :P and Larry trying to...

The Lemon video is one of my personal favorites. All the little commands that run across the bottom are hilarious. HAHA!!!

i'll say ebttrt, because it's such a visual experience. same with discotheque, it was like an updated version of ebttrt. then i also like lemon because it's so cool.

Well... can't say I'm the best person to answer this, as I haven't seen too many videos, really... but I suppose...

The Unforgettable Fire- Not sure WHY I love this one so much, but it is definitely one of my favourites... it's just incredibly haunting.

I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For- Bono annoying Edge is far too cute. (Also, I noticed once, wearing my black JT t-shirt, that there was a guy in the background wearing the same shirt...)

Numb- This is such a great idea, and reading in U2 at the End of the World about how it was made was so funny.

Sweetest Thing- Bono just cracks me up.

I Will Follow- this makes me laugh for many reasons... Bono's bouncing... the fact that they only gave Adam one close-up shot, which Bono bounced into as soon as possible... Bono messing up his hair... Edge doing his own little hops... Larry looking so young...

There are so many I want to see though... Love Is Blindness; Lemon; Discotheque; Stuck In A Moment (the European version, anyway, I'm not much for football); Beautiful Day; Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me.... and I could go on.

Ah, yes, I forgot about this one! It was cool to see the guys animated. Would've loved to have seen more Fly vs. MacPhisto scenes.

I have a lot of favorites

In no particular order:

One Drag Version - I think it's shot beautifully and the emotion comes through so well. I actually think this one might be my favorite.

Sweetest Thing - it's just so sweet and cute and funny.

EBTTRT - I love how the way the camera spins goes so perfectly with the song and the different visuals.

Lemon - a very weird video for a weird song.

Electrical Storm - My libido's favorite

ISHFWILF - the way bono sings to the camera and all the funny little things like edge rolls his eyes and adam's antics.

I Will Follow and A Celebration - so bad they're funny

Stay and WOWY - they are just so beautifully shot

Numb - hilarious

WOWY - This was not only the first U2 video I ever saw, but the first visual image I had of the band members. It is so beautifully shot, and very haunting and moody. It suits the song perfectly.

Sunday Bloody Sunday - Red Rocks, the rain, the lit torches by the stage and Bono with the white flag - does it get any better than that!

Where The Streets Have No Name - I wanted to be one of the people in the crowd so badly!

I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For - See comment for WTSHNN.

Desire - Because Bono looked so hot in it, and the seedy atmosphere fitted the song so well.

All three versions of One - if any song deserves three videos, it is this one.

EBTTTRT - The spinning effect is so cool

Stay - Beautiful concept, beautiful cinematography, beautiful video.

Lemon and Numb - funniest U2 videos ever!

HMTMKMKM - love the animation.

The Sweetest Thing - Awwwww!

Electrical Storm - beautifully filmed, very romantic and sad. Plus Larry is wet and half naked.

New Years Day - they stole my idea...one of these days I'll steal it back.

All I Want Is You - the look on the trapeze artists face

One- I nearly fainted when I saw the extra version I hadn't known about

Numb - the humour

Electrical Storm - the ill mermaid, the ocean full of crap, the anger, the love, the bathtub.

How can you narrow it down? Musical and visually artistic geniuses...imho. A body of work so immense, so diverse, so wonderful...

words are not enough eh?

U2 encore
