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.
"So where does all music come from -- be it hip-hop or rock 'n' roll? I don't know. But I do know that all music is praise. It's praise to the god of your making. Which, in the case of a rock star, might be oneself. Or a woman. Or an idea."
- Bono, 2004

In the early days U2 were mistakenly called "The U2", "VR" and "UR".
