I guess this is interesting. Band&choir performs the whole Joshua Tree album in one go. Of course the vocals are clearly improvable but there's a lot to be liked in here. You can tell they're all fans and have heard a lot of U2!

Yes everything has flown by. What a U2 years we had. I still haven't play a song from that so incredible best album of the world. A few hours to go. Let's play Exit, which we will never see them playing anymore on stage I think.
I remember it clearly!
We were on school holiday and on the way back the bus stopped at the gas station...I went down for a piss and I saw the JT tape exposed on a shelf...I was surprised because I didn’t know anything about a U2 new album ( there was no internet or other easy way to find out news or else)
Well I bought the new tape and I played it in my Walkman the whole night through from Rome to Milan on our way back
In the morning when we arrived I had dry lips for singing
But what I remember most of all was the organ at the beginning of Streets....my ears never heard a magic like that....I was 15 and I remember it like it’s now
One of my best moments in life
I still got the tape ( orange case )
...years later when I changed the speakers of my poor stereo and I bought a pair of Bose 401 for my bday the first thing I played was The Joshua Tree just to hear the intro
By the time I played it my father came into my room and said: that’s your birthday gift?....goddamn!fuck it!
"It can be frustrating at times when they sometimes take a song and work it into the ground, then work it back to life again. That's what happened with Stand Up Comedy. I was thinking the other day that Edge has probably heard the song more times than even the most dedicated U2 fan ever will."
