Wake up dead man should have been played full band.

My favorite is Gone. I still think this is one of U2's best songs, live.

I thought:


took a life of their own during the Popmart. You could really feel the energy from those songs. Plus, Larry's drumming during Discotheque was considered illegal in 14 states.

Last Night On Earth
Staring At The Sun

Gone is only #3 because of the line 'you can keep this suit of lights'. On the album, the phrase 'suit of lights' has a melody - 'suit o-of li-i-i-ights'. Bono has never sung that melody live, it's always just a matter-of-fact, 'suit of lights'. That's the only thing that bothers me about Gone live.

The original studio version of Discotheque is perfect, imo. No live version has come close.

Gone (studio) pwns Gone (live)
Miami (studio) pwns all Miami haters on this forum!

Okay, my answer(s) to this thread: Mofo & Please. One was a seriously kickass show opener and the other was sweet foreplay before the climax of Streets!

I forgot about Last Night on Earth.

Go and listen to a good version of that and tell me it didn't fucking kick ass. Do it.

Kind of agree with you, I loved the Chicago version, but the guitar soloing during POP was brilliant, and Im glad we didn't miss out on that...

I thought the First verse during the pop tour sounded weak. I honestly believe that the band were deceived by the click track. If you listen to bootlegs with it on, it sounds so much better than those without.

For me, Gone and LNOE were the songs of the tour. Lyrics from each of them were so where I was at that time:

From Gone it was....

You`re taking steps that make you feel dizzy
Then you get to like the way it feels
You hurt yourself you hurt your lover
Then you discover
What you thought was freedom is just greed

And then, from LNOE, the lyric that will always remind me of the madness of the tour

She's living, living next week now
You know she's gonna pay it back somehow
She hasn't been to bed in a week
She'll be dead soon, then she'll sleep


Oh God... I can't wait til next year!!!!!
