What songs are better on the album than live?

Will just name a few to start the convo:

1. Stuck in a Moment You Can't Get Out Of
2. Vertigo (So Far)
3. All I Want Is You

Of course, all the rest are mostly better live...

Stay (unless it's a full band version, but lately it's an acoustic live song).

There's an opinion that's just plain wrong. One Tree Hill, 26 December 1989, is the best live performance of any song by any band ever. End of story.

By the way, my picks ...

- Pride: There are a few performances better than the studio version, but they aren't all that common.
- With Or Without You: post-Zoo. The Popmart and Elevation versions were horribly weak. JT and Lovetown versions were majestic and brilliant, though.
- Sunday Bloody Sunday: It was better than the studio version until that lame walk in the park on Elevation rolled around.
- Absolutely anything acoustic, especially the acoustic Staring At The Sun and Stay. Songs just should not be watered down like that.

Beutifull day. I don't agree with the posts about All I Want is You or Stay acoustic. I don't like much of what U2 sings acoustic, but Stay was brillant acoustic during the Zootv tour.

I agree that Pride is definitely the big one that sounds so much better on the album. There's just a power to the original recording that's not there live... although that's just my opinion. *shrug*

Other picks:

Numb
The Fly
Lemon
Zooropa
I Still Haven't Found (depends on the tour! LOL)
Bad (also depends...)
Hold Me Thrill Me Kiss Me Kill Me
Beautiful Day

Ever heard a Lovetown Desire where Edge plays his solo at the end? (27 September 1989, 20 October 1989, and 18 November 1989, all in Sydney and 10 January 1990 in Rotterdam being prime examples.)
