ODD moments in U2 history.

I only started this thread because I love this smily face

I keep getting these when I post.

Anyway, there have been some odd moments in their history that have deserved this . Not necessarily bad, but weird in a U2 way that we are all used to and love

My favorites:

When he takes out that chick in the UABRS video and spins and spins her in slow motion. That was

The funky sounds about one minute after the end of "the wanderer" in Zooropa. Maybe this has an answer that I am unaware of.

After reading the drug thread, I was reminded that the Edge discovered the secrets of the universe whilst tripping on shrooms... and spoke them into the battery cover of a tape recorder

In the Pompart HMTMKMKM, Bono says, **coughcoughhackhack** FUCK THIS

Those sounds are made when radio stations have moments of 'dead air', meaning nothing is playing.

And I too, love the face.

I think that for this thread to go on adequately posters must provide detailed stories as to why, how and when and what reactions they caused.


Carry on now,

...oh and:

Nothing wrong with those WOWY performances. Sydney Zoo TV WOWY is amazing. On the other hand, 1st leg Elevaton WOWY is terrible. They did work it out later in the tour though. Slane WOWY is pretty cool.

Bono playing Mcphisto thing... (what was he thinking, he's not Gene Simmons)

I don't like it at all, it's kind of boring, and pretencious; but yeah, it's Bono, so, no one tells him 'no'...

Ok...another Popmart video question of ness.

There's a part (I forget the song) where you see Bono in the audience yelling "Give it to me" and then saying "Asshole" with a very mad glare. Who was he yelling at?!

yeah...at the end of LAOE...I think someone in the crowd either had a joint or a cigarette and bono motions him to give it to him, and when he does not, bono calls him an asshole.

see, now if he did that to a member on this board, he'd be in trouble.

Where did you get the joint or cigarette idea? Can you see that in the video?

A lot of the Rattle & Hum movie, I think that deserves two .

Like Edge said, you watch some of it and think "who are these people?"
