Yes, I like to be surprised!

And I mean in live U2 songs, such as Beautiful Day with the Blackbird snippet or The Electric Co. with all of it's various snippets. ;)

This was almost verbatim what I was going to write! Definitely my number-one favourite snippet, especially following the "shine like stars in the summer night" bit.

I saw U2 unexpectedly for a second time in Rome during the Vertigo tour and I was SOOO happy that Bono did the Blackbird snippet in Beautiful Day there. I love both songs SO MUCH. In the Netherlands (my first concert) he did Seargant Peppers, but that doesn't fit that well I personally think :/

I like them how they are, but when I've heard snippets snuck in, it always seems to work. If they like it, it's quite fine by me. :)

Other artists' snippets in U2 songs I don't mind so much, but for some reason it bothers me when they use lyrics from one of their own songs in another one. I wish I could remember a specific example.... Anyway, it always struck me as being solipsistic.

The cover snippets are one of the things that makes them a great live band -- they're always surprising you.

As noted, the Love Will Tear Us Apart snippet in WOWY is sublime. I think the best snippet I've seen live was at Slane when through a snippet of Yellow by Coldplay (who had played earlier that day) into Bad
