What song by U2 do u think is their best live?

personally i think its Streets...
no other song infuses or infects the crowd with so much jubilee.. especially with the light show they had for this Elevation tour that goes along with Streets.. everyone goes wild its just awesome... brings a tear for the memory of it =)

Hearing them play "One" live (which is my favorite song, btw) always makes me cry buckets...and I HATE HATE HATE crying in front of people!!!

I get excited whenever they play "New Years Day" live because I love Edge's "helicoptering."

And then there's "One Tree Hill" and "Until the End of the World." ah, yes!

Others...
"Please"
"11 O'Clock Tick Tock"
"Mofo"

It's between Bad and Streets. I lean towards Bad.

I have another (I know you said pick one but I can't! It's U2!).

Sunday Bloody Sunday (particularly Edge's acoustic version during Popmart)

Streets. No other song gets the crowd going for any concert or any band like this one.

All the obvious ones will be picked, but I'd like to profess my love for the overlooked live version of Tryin' To Throw Your Arms Around the World. Also, any live version of Running To Stand Still is amazing, especially the Zooropa version with the segue into Streets.

Above all......I'd have to go for...


SLUG

Ok.....seriously now....


Love is Blindness

Cause it just goes off! Bono's voice is so powerful, and from all the versions I've heard, they're all different.

In a close second place is


THE FLY

Bless ya!

It's a tie between Gone and Elevation

I still get goosebumps listening to Elevation, and Gone takes me to a completely different place. I love those songs live.

The best is Streets. Other favourites of mine include One, The Fly (Elevation), Bad, 40, One Tree Hill, Elevation, and Walk On with the Halellujah's tacked on.
