Judge based on the whole performance - music, visuals, cinematography, speeches/gestures/vandalism, drops of sweat, the whole package.

Best version of Streets ever.

Also voted for Silver and Gold, Bad, Bullet and Exit
Iíve seen for myself, thereís no end to grief, thatís how I know, and why I need to know that there is no end to love

No AIWIY?  The ending of the film was very memorable.  It's my number one vote.

ah, shoot...I just remembered that this version of With Or Without You is the "we'll shine like...".
I should have voted for that.

It's killing me to leave off Bad and Sunday Bloody Sunday. It's like chewing off an arm.

Also, Shank, you can edit your vote to choose four additional favorites, unless Bad and AIWIY are the only things you like about the film.

I did! And, now I'm questioning myself, because I switched out Bad for WOWY. Darn, I'm so wishy-washy. I love them all!

The helicopter pulling away as the stadium lights up for Streets is one of the greatest moments of U2-ness ever. Absolutely amazing.

Agreed...it's that version of Streets that...has gotten me through life to this ripe old age. A literal life-saver. A rope to hold on to. Ultimate U2.

Just had to put the film on at work to watch the ending again- i guess i incorrectly thought they played part of AIWIY at the end.
I love all the performances at the end.  The gospel version of ISHFWILF is cool to see on screen but the actual song version isn't my favorite.

I've wondered why "Yeah, we'll shine like stars" is so cathartic. Today I realized it's very simple.

This live version has a mind blowing Edge solo. Then comes the YEEEAAAHHHHHH that you are feeling anyway.

That's why, folks.
