Comments: First time U2 covers the classic Stand By Me. It was being played over the PA, the house lights were still up, and roadies were still preparing the stage when Bono suddenly appears on stage and starts singing to the tape. The rest of the band appear as the tape fades out and they take over the song live. This show features the Joshua Tree Tour debut of The Electric Co.; this is the first time since November 1980 it is performed without the mini-song intro of The Cry.

"I think they're the best collection of songs we've put together, there's no weak songs on that album. But it still isn't as an album...the whole isn't greater than the sum of it's parts and that fucking annoys me." - Bono on How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb in 2005
did you know
'40' from the War album almost was never recorded. The band (minus Adam Clayton who had left the studio) had gone over their booked studio time, but convinced the studio manager to let them record '40'. It has closed many show since. The Edge plays both electric and bass guitar on the song.
