Original of the Species, the sheer beauty of it just hits me every time...

Yes indeed ,  Good pick. ...............I also remember well when in Boston during Elevation and close enough to see Bono cry..........

” I don’t know, which way the wind will blow. Whose to know when the time has come around, don’t want to see you cry.  I know that this is not good bye “. 

Always a deeply sentimental beautifully written and played tune, but more so sharing Bono s grief in that moment.

Walk On does it because I was going through a bad time and my marriage was coming to an end. Streets does just because I love the song sooooo much. But when  seeing them live it can happen during almost any song.

The first time I saw them play 'Streets' back on the original JT tour. The stage went red and the opening sequence started. It was such an overwheming spine tingling moment I felt my eyes well up! Now each time I see them play it live it still does it!

the first time I saw them live I cried "I still have not found what I'm looking for".
now when I listen "sometimes you can not do it on your own", for my father :(

There are several, Running To Stand Still is the first that comes to  mind.

I'm right there with you. It's such a sad song.

Live versions tend to do it for me more than album versions so songs such as , Streets, a Walk On, Running to Stand still.

 

Then there are a few songs (only a few though) that make me cry because they are so bad, Miami, Elvis ate America, Song for Someone.
