For your Saturday listening pleasure come two songs from U2 that no self-respecting fan should go without hearing.

The first is With Or Without You.  A famous song, yes, but this live version includes a bridge (taken from the Book of Daniel) that they occasionally included in their live performances:

We will shine like stars in the summer night

We’ll shine like stars in the winter.

One heart, one hope, one love, with or without you…

The second is “One,” which has some of their best lyrics.  But rather than the pop version that they originally performed, they slow this concert version down considerably and add an orchestra.  The result is overwhelming.

More Monday.  Enjoy the weekend.
