Anyone fancy doing me a favour?

I'm bringing this question here because I'm utterly baffled. Would anyone be able to identify the snippets Bono sings in the following songs? Each file is just the snippet with the rest of the song edited out, so the files are about 30 seconds long at most. You don't have to be a U2 fan to help because Bono very rarely snippets one U2 song in another. He usually snippets other people's work.

1. Unknown snippet in Bad, 1987-05-04, Worcester (after the file ends, Bono continues to lead the crowd in chanting "sing it, sing it").
2. A different unknown snippet in Bad, 1987-05-09, Hartford,
3. An unknown snippet in Bullet The Blue Sky, East Rutherford: 1997-06-01 and 1997-06-03. I also have examples of this snippet from 1997-06-14, Edmonton and 1997-07-02, Foxboro, but it's even more indecipherable at those two shows.

I'm particularly bothered by #2 because I feel like I recognise it. In all cases, I've Googled whatever lyrics I could comprehend but failed to turn up any results of substance. Bono certainly fails to enunciate, and if anyone can identify these, I expect they'd do so based more on the tune rather than the lyrics.

Thanks in advance to anyone who takes the time to help!
