Oh, this is great!

But hard. Very hard indeed. Hmmm . . .

1. The 'aahhhh's' at the end of 'One'. Shivers down my spine.
2. 'With Or Without You', in general.
3. The moaning on HMTMKMKM.
4. 'Bad' - again, in general.
5. 'Scream without raising your voice' in RTSS
6. 'tart' from UTEOTW.
7. 'justify' from 'Pride', specifically the PopMart Mexico City version. Yes, I'm weird, but so what?
8. 'Lehhhmooonnnn'!
9. The campy 'Fat Lady' bit on 'Numb'
10. 'I was a monkey' on 'Wild Homey' - mostly just hearing him admit it.

Which reminds me of something, so I'll just cheat and add a 10.5 - has anyone else noticed this about WH? - that when Bono sings at around 3:38 (I think - I'll have to check) he slurs the lyric just enough so that it sounds like he's saying 'Edge is blowing in the breeze.'

I can't listen to that song with a straight face any more.

This is a hard one...

No particular order:

- Can't help falling & Satellite of Love - ZooTV-Sydney
- Kite
- Night and Day (an incredible falsetto somewhere in a mix..)
- Red Hill Mining Town
- Bad
- Stuck
- Running to stand still - Halleluja - zoo, sydney
- All I want is you (especially a new thing bono has added. When he sing the from-the-cradle-part, he goes very high on craaaaaadle. When i was in Denmark for the first Elevation-show, i couldn't help laughing when he did that, because people had talked about Bono loosing his voice...)
- Still haven't found....
- Hands that build.... (the opera-part is very cool, but it general a good performance).

This is no list of the best moments, just the ten i can think of right now. The list could go on...

10. Pride

This list could go on....

I also have a weakness for the way he says justify in "Pride!"

don't think I could do a top 10, but these are some that I love:

- One Tree Hill: "And when it's raining, raining hard..."

- Angel of Harlem (album version): just the "yeah! yeah!" part in the middle of the song (this is a pretty poor choice, but hey, I love it.)

- Running to Stand Still (Zoo TV Sydney): "Haleh-haleh, halellujah, haleh-haleh"

- Bad: any time he goes off on the "fade away" part

- of course the bridge from Wild Horses

- Sunday Bloody Sunday: the word "tonight"

Oh DIE!!!!!



And me the super-typo-obsessed English major, too.

I'm a git, I admit it. But it's so amazingly funny, albeit unintentionally, that I'm going to leave it like that.

And can you imagine the HORROR of Mac(Phisto) Daddy Bono, Rammin' Slammin' Mr. The Edge, Adam 'I Like It When You Call Me Big Poppa' Clayton and Junior Mullen?

Actually, I think I have a picture from the Achtung Baby era that looks quite like that. Anyone know the one I mean - where Larry is wearing a bandana and doing something peculiar with his hands and Edge seems to be pelvic thrusting with his hands on his head? Bono and Adam don't look quite so odd, but the whole effect is . . . scary.
