Zooropa: Dirty Day (awsome zootv performance!!!) Numb

Pop: the Discotheque/Velvet Dress combo and Last Night on Earth ("you got a give it away"! i liked how the screens project bono's and edge's face when they sing that part.)

From Achtung Baby: Love is Blindness - I'm addicted to the guitar on that song.

Zooropa: Lemon - Everything about the performence is unique.

Pop: Please - It gives me chills...

(But I think this theard should be on EYNIW)

Yeah, I'd say this isn't lyrics, plus you get a larger response in EYKIW.

Achtung Baby - Zoo Station, The Fly, Even Better Than the Real Thing, Until the End of the World, Mysterious Ways, Love is Blindness

Zooropa - Dirty Day (so bad on studio, great live)

Pop - Discotheque, Please, IYWTVD

Last Night On Earth for all three...

Close seconds:
AB: The Fly, of course, and the ZooTV version of Mysterious Ways

Zooropa: always gotta love Lemon...Bono belting out that " where the day begins!!!" I think Zooropa live was good too, although only played twice, neither of which were full, I think it would have kicked off the Macphisto encore georgeously. Just picture the Mac in his dressing room mumbling something about "Vorspung dur tecnik" and then walking out to the screaming masses as the song kicks into that outstanding second act...

Pop: Discoteque. Boomcha.

Other: The current version of Miss Serajevo is lovely, but the one in Serajevo sort of sucked (but due to the situation, was amazing). Definately the winner in this category goes to Hold Me Thrill Me Kiss Me Kill Me...soooo good live, love to see them break that one out again.

Zoo TV - Fly - So dark it's dangerous.

AB: Zoo Station (Vertigo),The Fly (Vertigo), Mysterious Ways (PopMart), UTEOTW (Vertigo)

Zooropa: definitely Dirty Day!!!

Pop: Mofo, Discotheque, Miami, Please, LNOE (all Popmart versions), Gone (Elevation)

But if I really have to chose ONE song from each album I would pick Mysterious Ways, Dirty Day and Mofo.

ACHTUNG BABY: what a tough choice...ill go with UTEOTW, its so much better live than on record.

ZOOROPA: Dirty Day, awesome live and the album version is kind of dull to me.

POP: Mofo, love it live

Achtung Baby - Until the end of the world
POP - Please

Zooropa is my favourite album out of the three but (or maybe it's because of that) I don't think any of the live versions is as good as the album version
“Some scientists claim that hydrogen, because it is so plentiful, is the basic building block of the universe. I dispute that. I say there is more stupidity than hydrogen, and that is the basic building block of the universe.”

AB - The Fly, no question. Zoo Station though, I never got into it at all until I saw it live on ZooTV.

Zooropa - Dirty Day. Live version has so much power, album version is a bit flat to me. DD is the one Zooropa track that should have been played more.

Pop - Please. Popmart version, though I've grown to love the Elevation version too. Gone on Elevation tour is close 2nd.
