As some of you know I have listened to almost all live performances of Bad. Along the way I found some snippets that are either Bongolese (so Bono making up stuff) or references to songs which are not identified yet. These snippets are not identified by U2gigs so help us out!
Here is my list:
1987-05-09 - “Hollywood shines like a star..”
1989-11-17 - Great great snippet, but no idea which song “write til its over“, “can you feel it”, “foreign dreams”
1992-05-09 - “Took you like a [..]”
1992-08-12 - Two unknown snippets, or one? “White carnations fall?” “Jersey girl”?
2001-05-24 - Some words difficult to make out
2001-08-18 - “Time..” something like that, right before 40
2005-04-21 - “I’m not alone..”
2005-12-04 - Unidentified talking etc.

did you know
The Popmart stage design, which looked like a supermarket, appealed to Bono as a supermarket, with its myriad choices and temptations, could function as a metaphor for U2's songs, as they often deal with the struggle between desire and faith.
