The Devil does The Beatles

When events like the World Cup (which doesn't really interest me) and Wimbledon (with which I am smitten) take place, my state of mind becomes far more internationally-oriented. Under such circumstances, no band quite hits the spot like the biggest band in the world, U2. My older brother and I exchanged emails on this subject, and he was kind enough to send along this fantastic YouTube vid of U2 doing "Ultraviolet (Light My Way)" on their '92-93 Zoo TV Tour. Notably, it shows Bono in MacPhisto mode, lampooning the United Nations and even singing an abridged cover of "Help" (relevance to the blog finally established).

(If the video is removed, go here).
