80's Bloody Sunday or Bad?

I've recently watched both the Live Aid and Rattle & Hum DVDs. IMO Sunday Bloody Sunday blows the Live Aid version of Bad away, much more unique and emotional. Any thoughts?

Well, I've never been fond of the entire U2 Live Aid performance, to be honest. I think it's highly overrated....there are much better versions of Bad and SBS out there.

I'm refering to the R&H version of Sunday Bloody Sunday, compared to the Live Aid version of Bad.

Agreed. Live Aid was great, but the performances of the two songs you mention are far and away better on Rattle and Hum. Especially Bad.

I don't think it's actual musical aspect of Bad that most people remember from Live Aid. It's all about the circumstances in which it was played, the emotion of it, plus Bono's interaction with the crowd (jumping off the stage to dance with a girl, conducting a little audience sing-along, etc.)

I do enjoy the performence on Live Aid...but during the R+H versions of both songs, totally outshine them I feel.

Weird fans here most of U2 fans out there ( including me ) think Bad from Live Aid was the very best ever ( Note I´ve listen more than 300 versions from UF to Elevation Tour ). Bono´s voice was at his best during "Wade Awake" part. I agree Sunday Bloody Sunday wasn´t their best - Larry´s singing during the chorus wasn´t a good idea - , but Bad was something out of body, including "Walk On The Wild Side", "Satellite Of Love", "Ruby Tuesday" and "Simpathy For The Devil". 13 minutes long

Peace

I enjoy both versions, but i think that Bad should have been shorter, because i dislike jumping in the attendance, yeah it's emotional, great and all but it's too much pussylike and he kissing those females...
Best moment of Live aid was Simpathy for the Devil/Ruby tuesday when he said: "Bonnie came from Miami,Fl, hitchhiked all across the Usa, she could hear the satellite coming down, pretty soon she was i London town, Wembley stadium and all the people there said dudududdududu...."

Yeah, Bono added the lines from Lou Reed's "Walk On The Wildside" to Bad from Live Aid too, thus stretching the song out more.

Ponkine is right - Live Aid's "Bad" was by far one of the bands shining moments of thier ENTIRE career!!! Period...no argument.

"We're an Irish band...we come from Dublin City, Ireland...like all cities...it has its good, it has its bad....this is a song called Bad."

Love the intro at Live Aid.

Weird fans indeed.
"Bad" from Live Aid was pure magic...period.
To even suggest otherwise is nonsense.

BAD - Live Aid - best vocal performance ever by Bono ; the band - simply spectacular. R and H is good but doesn't carry the emotion that BAD had. SBS is a good song, but not in the class of BAD live or studio.

Bad - Live Aid gave U2 their immortality. It is a 13 minute birth of "Rock Gods" status.
