Best intro into "Streets"

Greetings Zoonationals,

I decided to post an age-old question. What is the best lead into "Where the Streets have no Name"? Your choices:

"Running to Stand Still" (with the awesome harmonica solo)
"Please" (with Bono's amazing falcetto)
"Bad" (with a variety of songs between the two such as "40", "Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses", "Allison", etc.)
"All I want is You" (with the usual crowd singing while the strings fade in)

I personally loved "All I want is You" at Elevation as the lead into "Streets". It was so beautiful to hear every person in the arena singing the words to "All I want is You" and then hearing those strings coming in as the redness filled the air.

Then again, the amazing and inspiring version from Popmart is a top contender too. I'll have to stick by "All I want is You", though.

Which one will you choose?

I actually think the Superbowl version was the most incredibly moving intro to Streets ever!

I picked RTSS but Please was so very emotional.

I am beginning to think you could run anything into Streets and it would sound amazing.

Please into Streets.

U2 takes you from total desperation to total deliverance and jubilation. To see Bono on his knees while Streets begins, it's as though the music picks him up, gives him hope, and takes him higher. And the music does the same for me. I get chills every time I hear or watch it.

Bad is good! I think that combination sounds best. It was very intense in concert!

Bad, as the last notes fade away, and the Streets intro kicks in, and Bono is praying, WOW that is intense! Nothing is more chillworthy. No contest baby.
