In my case since I play U2 constantly in the car, nothing else ... ever. So sometimes it does become just back ground music.

But other times especially when I don't expect it, a song will just hit me and I will really hear it, and I get chills / tears and the works. Then I will be tuned in and hitting repeat over and over.

This morning All I want is you from the first Best of, just floored me. Near the end, the "All I waaant is youhoooo - All I waaant is youhoooo." *giant chills*

Whenever I hear any U2 unexpectantly on the car radio there is much excitement, plenty of chills and pumped up volume! If Ive just parked Ill wait till its over.
Songs that give me the chills - well so many, however hearing the first few seconds of Bad - ding, ding - ding, ding (best I can do, but you know what I mean) just turns ne into a lump of blubber - WAIA Bad with earphones has to be the ultimate U2 experience for me
Closely followed by
Walk On - "and love is not" .......OMG!

The combined performance of One and Walk On at Irving Plaza was astounding, and remains a gem that few people who aren't U2 fans have heard. One of the reasons I'm not a big fan of One is that it's not a strong enough song on the album for the most part, but they turned up the intensity for it when they played it live, and it comes through for them.

Almost any U2 song gives me chills when I hear it on the radio or in a store or a restaurant, simply because I'm not expecting it. When I'm listening to one of their albums I KNOW what song is coming next, so my heart doesn't suddenly start racing when I hear the first few notes.

There are quite a lot to choose from but the U2 songs that gives me the "chills" are...

New Year's Day live - it gets me everytime I hear Edge's guitar at the climax and hearing Bono's words "I, I will be with you again".

Streets Live - obviously its the build up thats amazing

Love is Blindness Live esp. the one in Sydney and New York Giants Stadium - beautiful guitar by Edge

WOWY Live - I quite agree with everyone here about the R&H version. its a truly amazing version especially Edge's guitar and Larry's great drumming! Woah, never seen Larry really sweat it out there!

Bad live - I still love the live version in R&H but everytime I hear it live in concert (about 10 times now), it still gives me the chills

BTBS live (in Boston) - that speech by Bono about Mark Chapman and the amazing guitar sounds by the Edge.... truly awesome!

One - what more can I say....

Electric Co live - UABRS version is amazing esp. the climax when Bono sings at the top of his voice "Electric Coooooooooo!"

others include Gone, Please, 40 all amazing songs live....
