Poll: U2 Pauses

I hope this has never been posted yet...

I was listening to "New Year's Day" (All is quiet...) then "October" came on.

I just realized that U2 aren't just about the sound, but the pauses, too - here's the "pause" I love most:

"But you go on -
*pause of bated breath*
- and on..."

The pause just makes the "and on" infinite.

It could be when Bono stops singing and The Edge comes in with a riff that makes your heart pound like nothing else (like the one in "Miracle Drug", just before Edge sings "Beneath the noise...").

It could be a pause for one of Adam's basslines. Or a Larry drum solo. Or... the breath before "whooo-hooo!" in Elevation.

So... what are your favorite U2 "pauses"? :-)
