What's your favourite Edge guitar solo?

Whilst there are so many outstanding Edge guitar solo's to choose from, do you have a favourite? I've just rediscovered my love for his masterpiece during 'All I want Is You' which I believe is up there with his best work. What's your favourite?

No question about it for me .. Silver and Gold. The studio version of the solo is great, but the live version on Rattle and Hum with the great intro by Bono after his diatribe on South Africa, well, you just can't beat that in my book. "Okay Edge, play the blues."

Hence my handle.

Well, technically, there's no guitar solo in Streets, but no biggy...

I would say either the solo in Please during PopMart or the one in Love Is Blindness on Zoo TV.

New Year's Day is my sentimental favourite. Also The Fly, AIWIY, WILATW. I don't really think of him as a man for solos, actually. The Fly probably is his best solo.
