baby, don't cry-

Just had a thought, thanks to the combination of leafing through the old Bono Rolling Stone interview and my edgyPod just shuffling to the song- to my knowledge, Electrical Storm has never been played live. I could be wrong, but I don't remember it being part of the main sets last year or hearing about any "wow, you had to see that!" performances or anything.

And if this is the case- does anyone know why? Because Bono actually listed it, along with Stay and UTEOTW and some others, as one of his favorite U2 songs, which sort of confused me. Before reading that, I'd just assumed that the band maybe hadn't liked it much in the long run and thus hadn't wanted to tour with it. But Bono must like it, then?

So far, my theories are that, either the rest of the band doesn't care for it much, they thought it didn't fit in with the rest of HTDAAB or into the set in general, or they couldn't play it without imagining Larry making out with the Samantha mermaid, which posed problems for timing and stuff. But does anyone actually know?
