none of those make my list

Sunday Bloody Sunday (from the Live under a Blood Red Sky) would be my next choice.

"I will Follow", which I got to see live on their first American tour in a club in San Francisco that only held a few hundred people.

They were supposed to come to a small college town in upstate NY but Live UABRS took off and they cancelled as their popularity went stratospheric. Funny story, a girl I dated in the early 80s was gushing over a Cheap Trick concert she had seen in Cleveland but whining about the warm up band--some "Irish band with an airplane name" is how she described them. This was right about the time MTV was playing I will follow, New Years day and Sunday Bloody Sunday videos daily.

Funny you should mention Cheap Trick, because I got to see them before they were famous, too. I lived in Madison Wisc when they were still a local bar band in the area (being from nearby Rockford), and I met Rick Neilson. Well, I'm not sure "met" is really the word, but I was really drunk one night and this weird guy kept talking to me and acting odd, and I didn't actually know who he was until he climbed onstage.

my only similar experience was being on a hs committee to get a band for a party and we got a band named WILD CHERRY for about 500 bucks. A few months later they released "Play that Funky music white boy". THe next year I tried to get them again but we didn't have 10,000 bucks to blow

One of my best friends when I was a grad student was the son of a man who owned a night club that featured some up and coming acts in the Queens area. This guy got to be a friend of Joe Strummer-sadly when they played nearby I was out of town since I was the varsity coach as well.

Depends on the moment I suppose...

"One" with MJB...much better than the straight up U2 version
Pride
Live version of "Love and Peace or Else"
Acoustic version of "Walk On"
Sunday Bloody Sunday
Live version of "Sometimes You Cant Make It On Your Own"

Look at Turtle, he's a regular little chatterbox in this thread.

Ask him to articulate specific points on economics, public policy... good luck getting ten words out of him

I guess next time I try to explain tax policy to him, I should use examples related to 1980s alternative rock crossover bands.

"Bono and the Edge are taxed at 39.9%, but this is a marginal rate..."

I like "Walk On." It's about Aung San Suu Kyi, the Burmese democracy advocate.
