** "In a Little While" gets a posthumous one from punk legend [[Music/TheRamones Joey Ramone]] who the band cites as a huge influence, it was the last song he listened to when he died of lymphoma. After that every time it was played on the Elevation tour it was dedicated to his memory

* While Music/AllThatYouCantLeaveBehind gets critized for sounding like it's lyrics come from a self help book for many people it's the most uplifting album they've ever released with nearly every song being touchy and/or motivational.

* 'The Miracle (of Joey Ramone) is such a heartwarming song, knowing [[TheRamones the subject matter]] and how much the impact it had on the band.

** '''"40."'''
** "The First Time".

** For this troper, the best use of "Where the Streets of Have No Name" would probably be at their performance at Slane Castle. The performance occurred just weeks after the death of Bono's father; needless to say, the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uDkBzkA9L4s preformance is nothing if not moving.]]
*** This troper thinks the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gq08ouOwiqQ&feature=related performance at the Super Bowl]] fits the trope better.



* Beautiful Day does the job well!

* Gabrielle Giffords is a congresswoman that survived an assassination attempt in Jan 2011. During her recovery she listened to U2 a lot and even picked a U2 song (Beautiful Day) as the wake up song when her husband, Commander Mark Kelly, was on the International Space Station. During a concert in Seattle, Bono dedicated Beautiful Day to Gabrielle and asks the audience “Imagine a man looking down on us from 200 miles up. Looking down at our beautiful crowded planet… What would he say to us…? What is on your mind, Commander Kelly?” Commander Kelly, appearing on the 360 screen from the International Space Station, quoted Bowie, [[http://youtu.be/9ydz5-ecdpg “I’m looking forward to coming home. Tell my wife I love her very much… she knows.”]]

* The song "One". At a moment the band was facing a serious split after ''Rattle And Hum'' and arguing over the direction of the next album, U2 sits down and records a delicate ode to the pain of a relationship falling apart, yet a song that still comes across as hopeful and uplifting.
