Running To Stand Still

Can we talk about the wonderfullness of this song?

The raw emotion and power behind Bono's voice is amazing. The way he performed it in ZooTV made my jaw drop.

the zoo tv version of this song is even better than the original version. the throbbing rhythm guitar and bono's hallejuahs are perfection.

One of my all time favorites!! I used to sing it at parties with my room mate on guitar.

The entire song is just brilliant. . .some of his best song writing!

I love the presentation during Zoo TV as well, Bono in his miltary outfit, walking the catwalk with the smoke rising.

Alle, alle. . . Alleluia.

Does anyone have an MP3 of that version?


The mood of that rendition is so simple but it has so much strength and sheer emotion.

my favourite version is from outside broadcast. the whole thing is worth checking out, it's amazing:

http://es.geocities.com/u2extremadura/index.html

click on the downloads section to get to the files. all you have to do is change the files from .txt to .mp3 and enjoy!

if the link doesn't work (the site is sketchy) let me know and i can e-mail it to ya.

How does one change it to .mp3? Just right click on rename and type it in? I'll definetly check it out.

I still one the ZooTV one though...if anyone's got it.

I also love Edge's guitar in this song....the twangs are wonderful.

I have a few videos from that tour. . .I think the one from Nassau Colesium (NY) has soundboard quality sound. However, I have no idea how to copy the sound digitally to an MP3.

I wish I knew how to transer it from the video....

And in relation, what the hell is taking U2 so long to make DVDs of Popmart and ZooTV?!

Anyone read the story about the Bullet/Running/Streets combo in Flannagan's Bible?

It makes me go

Basically, they worked the three songs together on that tour, complemented by Bono's military attire, into a story about a friend who went into the army (vietnam?), became addicted to Heroin, etc.
