Dance with me

I have a new favourite U2 song. It's not Bad from the Rattle And Hum video any more. It's 11 O'clock Tick Tock from Red Rocks, 5 June 1983 (it appeared on the Under A Blood Red Sky video). IT IS FANTASTIC. Utterly incredible. And, best of all, you can download it and listen to it yourself at (I fear this link may not work because I think you need to be a member of to access this particular forum). I don't know if you have this or not, Sarah, but I highly recommend it, and Lauren, you might like this as well, and the same goes for anyone else interested in listening to some U2. Edge is absolutely scorching on guitar, this recording is equally as good as the UABRS video, and if you're wondering what the cheering is all about after the "Dance with me!" part and during the soft part between riffs before "Call out Your name/Call out in shame ...", Bono has actually pulled a woman out of the crowd and is dancing with her on stage. This is mindblowingly good. Forget any other version of 11 O'clock Tick Tock you've heard.
