Favorite Snippets?

List some of your favorite snippets here.

I've really been digging the My Sweet Lord snips at the end of Mysterious Ways on this tour. And, of course, Discotheque was awesome during Crazy Tonight.

I also like Blackbird, Here Comes The Sun, and Sgt. Peppers snips during Beautiful Day.

But I gotta say, my favorite snippets of all time were in the Rattle and Hum version of Bad - when Bono snippets Ruby Tuesday and Sympathy For The Devil. They worked perfectly and I wish he'd do those ones more often.

Nothing, and I mean nothing, tops Ruby Tuesday and Sympathy for the Devil in Bad.

Fully agreed on the Bad snippets cobl04 and TheEdge25

Blackbird in BD is a great one, i remember at my first show that was one of the coolest moments at the start of the show, not sure why

Stand by Me in ISHFWILF pure rocks!

And I like the 'Rain' snippet at Zurich (II?) before streets!

oh and when they used to snippet their own songs like WGRYWH and The First Time etc in Bad during the 00's tours were ok

Those Bad snippets are iconic for sure! I always liked the Walk On the Wild Side snips too.

All time favorite is probably the Resolution and Independence snippet during the Streets intro at Lovetown Dublin (12-26-89?). Chills...

Shit, how could I forget.

Dirty Old Town snip at the end of Running to Stand Still tops the Bad snippets. Wow

The best Bad snip for my money is Norwegian Wood.

Been loving the Movin' On Up snippet this tour.

But my favourite, undeniably, is the Resolution And Independence snippet over the intro of Streets on 26 December 1989. Absolutely perfect.

I like IGC at the end of BD for this tour. I really wish they would play that song again.

For other tours, I thought WILATW after that one Bad performance sounded awesome. When Bono sings the Shine Like Stars part after WOWY is perfect. Stories For Boys with Vertigo was sick.

I'd beg to differ. I can think of better snippets in Bad alone.

Some examples:

Break on Through in Until the End of the World (number 1 for me)
Silver and Gold, Gloria (Van Morrison) and Riders on the Storm in Exit
Amazing Grace and Dirty Old Town in Running To Stand Still
The Fly in Discotheque
Daddy's Gonna Pay For Your Crashed Car in The Fly (Vertigo Tour, Chicago) and When Love Comes To Town (ZooTV)
The First Time, Fool To Cry, Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses, When I Look at the World, 40 in Bad
Send in the Clowns, Bullet With Butterfly Wings and I Can See For Miles in The Electric Co.
Hawkmoon 269 and Running To Stand Still in Desire (Elevation Tour, Cologne)

WILATW is not a snippet. It goes for about two minutes, and he sings the first verse, chorus, second verse and chorus again if I'm not mistaken.

It's still slap-bang in Bad; it's not an independent performance of WILATW.

As Axver said, it's incorporated into Bad and Edge is playing a variation of the chords over Bono's lyrics. It's a huge snippet though.

A huge, gorgeous snippet that I love, but still I want to punch the wanker in the face that keeps saying "I can't believe it."

Bono singing "it's raining men" at one of the Florida Popmarts during MW.

Vertigo/Gabba Gabba Hey was cool.
