My parents hated "Discotheque", but when they heard it live on PopMart and Elevation, they said it wasn't as bad.

Hell, they're U2.
Most of their songs sound better live.

New York. Didn't care for it at all until I first heard it live. Now I can't get enough of it.

The Fly was always a great tune, but done really well on this past tour.

Sweetest Thing. I thought they took a classic b-side and made it WORSE (on the Best Of.. album), until I heard it live.

The best song they've ever done live is Gone on this past tour. Again, like The Fly, was always a great tune, but I really lose myself when they play this live.

I think Charlie"s Angel hit it right on the head though. They can take an average studio track and just give it amazing life when they perform it live. Pop was a great example of that, and, believe it or not, Actung baby. Listening to U2 for 10 years before Actung Baby came out, that was a HUGE sound difference at the time, and I had to listen to that album a bunch of times before I accepted it. Then, of course, Zoo Tv came along and they played practically every song off of it, and I fell in love with the album.

my two cents

I would have to agree with Bad. The studio version of that song kills me. I can't even listen to it which is odd since it is SO incredible live

I think the real question here should be which songs don't sound better live. I mean, I think the fast majority do.

Most definately...

The Fly
UTEOTW
Bad
New York

And to answer Ody's question... off the top of my head, I prefer the studio version of 'Ultra Violet' better than their live version.

WOWY looks really cool live with the star charts, but the Fernandes sustainer guitar and the Ebow that the Edge has used live don't sound nearly as good as the Infinite Guitar on the studio version.
