What are your favorite U2 videos and which ones you can't stand?

My faves:
With or Without You- This is first U2 video I ever saw years ago when I was a kid. This is the first U2 song I ever heard.

Stuck In A Moment- Second Version

Elevation

Staring At The Sun

Even Better Than The Real Thing- It makes me dizzy sometimes.

The Fly- Bono looks very suave Edge looks very energetic! The band is on fire in this video.

Numb- Poor Edge! It makes me laugh every time.

Electrical Storm- It's about time Larry was in front of the camera more! Hopefully Adam is next.

The videos I dislike-
Lemon- This is my favorite song but the video is blech!

Staring At the Sun- second version
Maybe I'm biased because I love the first version so much.

Please- weird video. It gives me the creeps.

That's all I can think of for now.
So what are some of your faves or the ones you hate?

I think that Zooropa as an album had the best clips.
Stay, Numb and Lemon are all fantastic.

ATYCLB had the worst - way too MTV.

All the others are somewhere in between. I love both versions of One.

Love Stay that is probably my favorite. Gotta agree that the ATYCLB vids were not the best in my eyes.

Zooropa clearly produced the best U2 videos.

Numb - original and hilarious
Lemon - produces that dark and desperate feel (and has MacPhisto!)
Stay - just gorgeous, everything about it

Videos I didn't like:
Staring At The Sun - boring video to a great song
Please - I know I'll get flamed for this one, but the video to me doesn't do the song justice. Again, rather boring.
And, the worst U2 video of all time....Elevation!!! This could be the biggest video letdown ever - what is happening in this video???

Oops! I forgot to add "Where The Streets Have No Name" to my favorites list.

I also don't mind seeing Discotheque every now and again. The Village People part makes me laugh.

I like One also. The version where U2 is dressed in drag and the other where Bono is in a bar. It seems as if he is talking right to the viewer. I don't really think the girl was needed.

The Mysterious ways video blows big time. The footage has nothing to do with anything.

My favourite by miles is All I Want is You. A great little movie in itself and the co-ordination with the music is wonderful.

Yeah, I'll pile on to the football version of "Stuck". Woeful.

I'll add to the praise for the three Zooropa videos. Definitely the highlights of their video careers. Frankly, I can't think of a good video since the Zooropa ones ... but I've never liked U2 videos much anyway. I'm not optimistic about "Vertigo".

Best- With or Without You. I think it has defined the look/style of U2

Worst- Elevation, Stuck
