Battle Of The Videos: Round 3

Unsurprisingly, The Unforgettable Fire is winning the last round by a mile. What is surprising is how close the rest of the voting is - I thought version 1 of Pride was the obvious runner-up, but it's only just ahead of A Sort Of Homecoming!  I wasn't expecting that video to get any votes at all, to be honest - I didn't think there was anything special about it, as great as the song is. Anyway, on we go!


ROUND 3: THE JOSHUA TREE

The videos are:

With Or Without You [YouTube link]
Bono looks scary, swings guitar around. Edge... quietly thrusts against his.

I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For [YouTube link]
Vegas, baby. Bono: *makes nuisance of self* Edge: *IGNORES* Larry: *sings* Adam: "Screw you guys, I'm goin' home!"

Red Hill Mining Town [YouTube link]
Fans wait 20 years to see Bono sweatily over-emoting while Larry whacks a post over and over again.

Where The Streets Have No Name [YouTube link]
U2 fought the law, and the law won. Eventually.

In God's Country [YouTube link]
Black & white footage of Americaaa, etc. Denim Bono becomes Leather Bono!

Spanish Eyes [YouTube link]
Tour madness, revisited. Best moment: Bono's "WTF!" face when his microphone unexpectedly makes a bid for freedom.


Remember you're voting for the best VIDEO, not the best song...
