I must choose Heartland, my namesake.

The opening bassline sounds like a heartbeat, the pulse of the Midwest as the land wakes up. The guitar part chimes in and makes you feel like you're watching the sun rise, driving down a highway with open fields in every direction. Bono's lyrics whisper over the landscape, like a ghost haunting the early morning hours. Throughout the song, you travel down the highway and witness what Bono is describing. When he starts the falsetto, you lose yourself in the beauty of the countryside. The song fades away, like a sunset, leaving you peaceful. All is right with the world.

At the end of Bullet The Blue Sky on August 12, 1993:

Outside it's Americaaaa!
AMERICAAAAA!
WHERE THE FUCK ARE YOU?!?
UNITED KINGDOM, FUCK YOU!
FUCK YOU, GERMANY!!
FUCK YOU, FRANCE!!!
ZOONITED NATIONS!!!!!
ZOONITED NATIONS!!!!!
ZOONITED NATIONS!!!!!
And we run...
Into the arms...
Of America.

I love the unbridled political rage in this song...you really have to hear it to appreciate it fully, and the Sarajevo Satellite Uplink and Bad right before this song.

Too many to list!

1) All of the live WOWY "Yeaaaaaaaaaah, we shine like stars..."
Instant chills

2) "MY OH MYYYY" in "Stuck in a Moment".

3) The opening chords (BELLS) of Bad....live, bootleg, album version...it doesn't matter. It still gets me every time.

4) "Get up off your knees NOW" in Please (live).

5) Ultraviolet "Baby, baby, baby light my way (oh, come on) Baby, baby, baby light my way" when he SHOUTS "OH COME ON".
Wow, its just amazing.

6) Last line of "Tryin' To Throw Your Arms"..........."Woman I will" with that last beat....chills again.

7) Of course, opening minutes of Streets....

Wow! Great thread!

Too many to list, but here are my top 12 favorites, in no particular order:

1. The gospel voice in The Fly (album version)

2. The bridge in Discotheque - Guitar by the Edge and then Bono goes Looooove...you want heaven in your heart...

3. Streets intro (enough said)

4. The Irving Plaza opening to Mysterious Ways (Edge genius) + any live Mysterious Ways ending slide guitar solo

5. Hold Me Thrill Me - the opening part where Edge does his first wah-wah pedal effects. Still blows my mind.

6. Any Bullet the Blue Sky live solo where Edge goes off on a long solo and then Bono loses it and goes off on a rant. Yeah, we like that. "Peelin off those dollar bills...Slappin' em down!"

7. New Years Day - the extra verse on the album version "so we're told this is the golden age, and gold is the reason for the wars we wage"

8. Beautiful Day - album version, Edge and Eno engineered interlude where the drumming just stops and Bono sings "See the world in green and blue...." and then in kicks back in . Perfect.

9. WOWY - Shine like stars add on

10. Red hill mining town - "Loooove slowly stripped away, love has seen its better days, hanging on...."

11. In God's Country - Like a siren she calls to me...

12. Staring at the Sun - "I'm nearly great, but there's somethin missing..."

One Tree Hill...
That lyric, along with the two that come before it, are the best lines from that song, in my opinion.

I also agree completely with ouizy and Roland of Gilead.

And speaking of rants, I just love the rants from "Bullet The Blue Sky" and "Sunday Bloody Sunday" from "Rattle and Hum"...I'm sitting there going, "Go, Bono!"

I'm listening to this song now, so I feel I'll add this one:

'Cause I'm already gone
Felt that way all along
Closer to you every day
I didn't want it that much anyway

I like the way Bono sings this part.

Course, anything from this song would work, 'cause it's a great song the whole way through.

And another one, this one from the live version of "Exit" from "Rattle and Hum"-the whole thing where Bono throws in a bit of the song "Gloria". That is cool.

So many to choose from:
I think I'll post one at a time to keep this thread going....

1) You said no songs can be repeated: Can I repeat with a live version?

One: The Warchild Version

At about 30 seconds into the song the first chorus of "One love, one life" begins. The strings are intorudced here and the entire crowd sings along.

Take into consideration that this is the first concert in Sarajvo since the war. It's utterly astounding that all these people (for whom English is not even the primary language) are able to put aside their differences, their problems, and raise their voices in song.

..."one love, one life." It gives me chills to hear the band, the orchestra, and a country full of grief united under this subtle, melodic spell, lead by this voice that absoluely melts (like buttah). Listen to what they're saying. Put it in the context of the time. *sigh* I keep repeating this point because it's just so incredibly powerful and moving. It is my top U2 moment...EVER.

Wow...that sounds amazing just from your description.

Where can I find this version of the song, if it's possible? I want to hear that.

From one of my favorite U2 songs (for personal reasons):

After what I think is a killer intro...

We crossed the line
Who pushed you over?
It doesn't matter to you
It matters to me.

Yep (I love that song, too-probably not for the same reasons you like it, but eh, oh, well).

Here's a few more to add to this thread:

From "Running To Stand Still"-

She will suffer the needle chill
She's running to stand still

and from "Trip Through Your Wires"-

Angel
Angel or devil
I was thirsty
And you wet my lips

You
I'm waiting for you
You, you set my desire
I trip through your wires

and then the whole "All I need" thing.

God, I love those songs. Two of my personal favorites from "The Joshua Tree".

And one more:

Angel in the devil's shoes
Salvation in the blues
You never looked like an angel
Yeah, yeah
Angel of Harlem

Every time that part comes up in that song, I just belt it out along with Bono. . I absolutely love that song, too.

It's relatively easy to find. WinMx, Kazaa, etc. Just type in One. It's the only live version with a full orchestral, I believe.
It may be listed under: One (Full orchestral version), or One (The awesome version)--that's how I find out about it, or it may list Pavarotti (Bono, Edge, Pavarotti)....I don't know all the details about the Pavarotti thing. It could be listed under One - The Warchild version. Anyway, trust me. Download it.

Oh, and if it helps, it's about 5:06 in length. Let me know what you think.

I love MOFO from Mexico City too (Hasta La Vista, Baby version)...

Mexico mofo
Mexicofo
Mexico
Mofo, mofo
Mofo, mofo
Shine, oh yeah, alright here it comes
Mofo, mofo
Kiss it up

Lookin' for to save my, save my soul
I'm lookin' in the places where no flowers grow
I'm lookin' for to fill that God-shaped hole
Mother, mother suckin' rock and roll
Mother poppin' sugar shoppin' rock and roll

Holy dunk, space junk comin' in for the splash
Been around back, been around front
White dopes on punk staring into the flash
Been around back, been around front
Lookin' for my baby Jesus under the trash
Been around back, been around front
Mother, mother suckin' rock and roll
Mother poppin' sugar shoppin' rock and roll

Mother, am I still your son
You know I've waited for so long to hear you say so
Mother, you left and made me someone
Now I'm still a child, but no one tells me no
Tell me no, tell me no
No, no, no, no, no

I'm looking for a sound to drown out the world
I'm looking for the father of my two little girls
Soothe me sister
Move me brother
Soothe me sister
Move me brother
Move me a mountain
Move me a mountain
Move me a mountain
Move me a mountain
Move me a mountain, love
_____
Its such a hard core song but that ending is so great. The lyrics are just amazing and I think this is an AMAZING performance of the song.

Oh, another one I love is any live version of Threw A Brick. Larry's drums are amazing this song...

He just just booms in and then you get "I was talking, I was talking to myself,
somebody else, talk, talk, talking.
I couldn't hear a word, a word he said.
He was my brother, I said there was no other,
other way out of here, be my brother,
Got to get out, got to get out,
(Got to get out of here)"

And I just love Edge's echo background vocals on "Brother" in this song.

Its just great when they go into "Day W/o Me" too.

I totally dig when the bass entered into Elevation and I cannot agree more with the quote from "One Tree Hill".

It's a repeat, but I love the lyric from "Walk On" ending with "only fly for freedom".

"New Year's Day":

I will be with you again

Just such a hopeful sentiment.

"I Will Follow":

If you walk away, walk away
I will walk away, walk away
I will follow

So catchy, fun to sing along to.

And "Discotheque":'

BOOM-CHA! BOOM-CHA!
