Since I finally bought the best of DVD this weekend, I feel that I can now make some proper comments to your thread.

*note there are many PLEBAesque remarks*

1.Discotheque –because i enjoy seeing Larry pissed off dressed up as a cowboy. I believe he borrowed that cowboy hat from his son Aaron.
2.Staring At The Sun (not the Miami version) – the light concept for this video was unique. Not to mention Larry looked pretty damn hot in it.
3.Pride (not the Slane Castle version) – this video because it was one of the first U2 videos that I remember seeing on MTV as a kid.
4.Stay - one of my favorite songs and just a pretty video, however the female singer's mouth annoys me. I like the concept of U2 being angels.
5.Miss Sarajevo - deep and meaningful video about War
6.Lemon - just a cool concept for a video. Oh and Larry looked hot.
7.Mysterious Ways - uh, bono and Larry on the ground, hello!
8.Desire -
9.Streets - U2 being defiant in downtown LA. Love it!
10.The Unforgettable Fire - it is all about Larry's smile.

I think that pretty much sums up why "Desire" is a great video.

Heh, my mom said recently that even though she's not nearly as into Bono as I am, when they were talking about Bono wearing the vest and the leather pants and all that on that "I Love The 80's" thing, and they showed that clip of Bono walking down that alley from the "Desire" video, she admits that he looked really cute there...I was so happy to hear that.

Bono in "Desire"...ohhhh myyyy......

*Fans self*

Desire and Bono = red hot! i love that Vh1 80's special and how they were talking about how he looked like a rock god in this video. my co-workers were quick to remind me about that the following morning at work. lol my friend came up to me and admitted to me that she thought Bono was hot as hell in this video. haha!

I'm surprised that more people aren't giving props to the WOWY video.

It, IMO, still ranks up there with one of those "gives you chills cause U2 is so damn cool" moments.

Bono looks slightly gay in his leather vest sans shirt, but the Edge is kickin' ass with that huge guitar and I like the lighting direction - very cool.

Bono strikes some of his JT-era signature poses in the vid too (guitar on back, one arm hanging down swinging slightly).

Great song, great video!

HUH?! How could you say that?! That is the look and pose that turn most of us ladies on! He looks very, very straight. Don't flame me, you started it, but I always thought POP Adam and Edge looked very homosexual most of the time. They all look rather gay on the back of the Best of 1990-2000 cd cover (not the two pack, just the one with the best of cd alone. I'd have gone with the Times Square AB pose myself. )Not that there's anything wrong with that, not being offensive, I have gay pals and all, it's just that I don't understand anyone seeing WOWY Bono as 'gay' when he looks about as hot a ladies' man as I've ever seen`

Desire4Bono -

It's all in the eye of the beholder - I was 16 years old and Bono looked a little gay to me in that vid. I quickly came to appreciate that it was more of a bad-ass look than a gay look, but what can I say?

(I'm a guy btw)

Haha, yeah, no kidding.

That's what I said to my sister-she just looked at me weird and said "Ewww..."

Meh.

stuck (euro)--it's just cool.

elevation--hey, you can't go wrong with good and evil u2 and edge winking

even better than the real thing--the spinning...the spinning...

gloria--maybe it's just the song, i don't know...and i'm mad i accidentally threw the file in the recycling bin...

discotheque--one word: BOOMCHA!

*wild card cos i'm so fucking incapable of chosing favourites*
