Monday Night at the Cafe: I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For

Here is the original version:

And here is the live version. If you have ever been to a U2 concert, this song - which expresses the pilgrim's journey so well - is extraordinarily moving. Thousands and thousands of people singing the refrain. Suddenly a room that seats tens of thousands of people becomes like a small room. It's also contrary to what grand gatherings, especially political and religious ones, are known for - the certainty of revving up a crowd with some kind of political or religious slogans. But in this song, we hear the longing of a people on search, on a pilgrimage for something more.
