The more snippets the merrier. It's not as if they are sung in place of U2 lyrics, or are so long that they cost us another U2 song (like the fucking speeches do).

This man has the right idea. Besides, even a chunk of, say, Discotheque is better than nothing.

Bono is the king of snippetry

I LOVE them! The references are kind of cool and I like how they are showing respect to other bands/artists by snippeting their songs. I hope it never stops. In fact, some snippets could be longer.

If I hear 40 sung at the end of Bad one more time i'm going to lose it. Seriously Bono, way to ruin the song!

If I hear Bad live one more time I'll count myself lucky regardless of whether there's snippets or not

i like when u2 snippet their own songs, but it's usually lame when they snippet other people's songs. especially when a drop of rain falls from the ceiling, then OMG MUST SNIPPET EVERY SONG MENTIONING RAIN EVER

This is such a part of U2's live shows, it would be so weird without it.

Except Bono apparently only knows two:

Rain by The Beatles

Singin' In the Rain by Gene Kelly

Seriously, if they're going to keep getting rained on, he needs to pull out some different songs.

You'd be surprised by how many times Bono can snippet the same song during a rainy show.

Or maybe you wouldn't be.

how true. and yeah, him snippeting the same thing more than once at the same show pisses me off more than it probably should.

The fact that Singing In The Rain has been snippeted three times per show at four shows this leg is just ... well ... yeah, I'll join in on the chorus of FIND SOME DIFFERENT RAIN SONGS!

As much as I love snippets and think they add some real flavour to the setlist, this particular aspect is getting ridiculous. It's not as if the world's only got a couple of songs about rain. How about, oh I don't know, Summer Rain?

Heaven forbid they should do something off the cuff and PLAY "Summer Rain". Screw snippeting.
