Which version of Please do you like better?

Album version or single version? I have to say single version, because it has all the added strings, the second 'love is big, bigger than us' is stronger vocally, and of course it has the addition of one of my favorite guitar solos ever and imo one of Edge's crowning moments.

Single. It's brilliant. Album version kinda blows.

I couldn't put it better. The single version is certainly the best one.

gotta go with what it became live... stripped down and spare, and ten thousand times more powerful for all that. see Kansas City 2001 concert for what i mean...

I was at the only Elevation gig where they played it full band. It was effing amazing. I mean the power of that song after 9/11.

I'm PRETTY sure it was the 20th. It was in the Baltimore Arena, and it was the night Garbage's bassist or drummer got sick and Graham Parker filled in. We also got to hear Knockin' On Heaven's Door with a guy from the crowd (full band)

The single version is the best, sounds like it could be on Achtung Baby with the spiraling solo and polished sound..I also really like the ghostly strings, especially at the beginning and end of the song. They aren't used to make it sound pretty, rather they create a sinister feel to the tune.

I like the single version the best because of the bridge, but when I saw them live, when they came to Denver, they played it acoustic and it was the coolest thing ever
