Sounds like 6 or 7 glued together. I like the single version better.

Fuck acoustic. Not with that guitar sound.

The Amsterdam electric version destroys the studio recording and any neutered live performance.

Which date is that from Laz? Now you've made me curious, so I'll give it a listen.

July 16th, 2005.

It's also the same night they played that KILLER Wild Horses electric, the best live version I've ever heard.

Those damned lucky Dutch.

They played that full band Wild Horses a couple of times I think, right? I haven't heard that particular version in awhile, but they played a very similar one on May 28 in Boston that year, which I was there for. It was awesome needless to say. The third leg versions of just the acoustic only didn't compare.

Perhaps, yeah.

Making it even more frustrating that they didn't keep playing it that way.

9. Another one of my favorite U2 songs. When I first heard it, it was like a warm embrace. (cheesy I know, but that's how I felt...) It meant so much to me emotionally. Not as much now, but I still love it.

Yeah, that was a really good show. Wild Horses also segues into a really nice version of COBL. And that's my favorite live version of OOTS, other than the beautiful Milan performance.

WGHRYH was played in non-neutered capacity five times on the first and second legs of the Vertigo Tour, in Boston, London, Glasgow, Dublin, and Amsterdam.

Try any of the ZooTV 1st leg performances, most of them are even better. The March 18th, East Rutherford show is one of their best performances in general - such a shame that there isn't a better recording of it.
