U2

U2 is an Irish rock band that have won more Grammys than any other band.  The lead singer Bono writes most of the band’s songs.

Here are some live versions of several of my favorite songs.

Here is With or Without You performed  live at Slane Castle in Ireland.

In my opinion, the vocals are better in the last version but this performance touches my emotions.

Where The Streets Have No Name show of the guitar skills of The Edge.

I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For is live in Milan.

Stand By Me

Ben E. King wrote the song and first released it in 1960 where it was number 1 on the R&B chart and number 4 on the pop chart.  He re-released it in 1986 and it was used in the movie Stand By Me.

Playing For Change recorded the song which included 35 musicians and street performers from all over the world.

Bruce Springsteen joins U2 in the song.

Timon and Pumbaa from the Lion King also released their version.

Straight No Chaser,  Indiana University’s a cappella group sings the song in a Hardees restaurant in Kentucky in 2007.
