"All I Want is You" is a little on the snuggly side to begin with, after all, and so is "The Sweetest Thing." No matter how high the bar is set, what's consistent about this series is its knack for getting eyelids to drooping and rock fans to chuckling.

Tracks Include: Sunday Bloody Sunday, All I Want is You, Beautiful Day, One, With or Without You, I Still Haven't Found What I Am Looking For, Angel of Harlem, Where the Streets Have No Name, New Year's Day, Desire, The Sweetest Thing
