U2 - Bad Live Aid 1985 (back in 85 I watched this concert, heard this song, saw this performance and became a fan of U2 FOREVER! In the 6 times I have seen them, when we are lucky enough to hear this song, my legs go weak at the intro. Now this is the green young version I first saw but I will Pin the newer one as well, 2011, as the song never grows old.
