One from Iriving Plaza with a couple lines from Walk On is another good version.

Given the nature of the band at the time of the recordings in Berlin, 'One' may have been the song that saved them. And maybe some of us as well. You can hear that on the album version, it grabs you and pulls you into it.

For that reason, I think 'One' will always have the signifigance of 'Pride' when played, but I think the never really get there with 'Pride' like they do 'One'. They are both audience songs, IMO like 'Kite'.

Having said that, ZooTV Sydney video performance of 'One' is absolute perfection and their strongest performance on video that I am aware of.

ZooTV version of "One" is breathtaking, but for me the "POPMart in Mexico" version is the most heart-breaking performance of that song. Although sometimes it makes me a bit uncomfortable, a bit too much like intruding on somebody's private grief - you can just see that Bono is -that- close to going to pieces during the performance.

The version on the ZooEuropa boot from Dublin 93 is also outstanding, still the best live version I have heard.
