We have a winner.

I've only seen one opener live (EBTTRT), the rest on DVD/YouTube - but really:

1) Pop Muzik / Mofo
2) Zoo Station
3) Even Better Than The Real Thing
4) City of Blinding Lights
5) Where The Streets Have No Name

What about "I Could Have Lost You" from ZooTV?
The only openers I've seen are "Breathe" and "Even Better". I really, really love EBTTRT.

POP Muzik / MOFO

Nothing touches that. It had a great flow to it so natural. That's what i missed at the 360 show there was so little flow between songs.

My favorite was Streets opening the Joshua Tree tour.
Made me cry the first time I saw it.

No lights, no fancy stage, no crazy outfits, just four guys on a platform rockin' the Irish kids at Croke Park:

Pop Muzik/Mofo, hands down. Thread over!

Tied for second:
Zoo Station (the Zooropa tour opening sequence version)
Streets (just a great opening song, nothing flashy)
City Of Blinding Lights
Hawkmoon 269

Third:
EBTTRT
Vertigo
Elevation

Fourth:
Out of Control
Gloria
Love And Peace

Fifth:
11 O'Clock Tick Tock (sorry, never thought this was a great opener)
Breathe (mediocre opener)

DEAD LAST:
Stingray into Beautiful Day or Beautiful Day period (worst opener ever, period)
