viva davidoff and bottoms appreciation thread

let's take a moment and appreciate these two tunes, simply for the fact that they're rarely mentioned around these parts, and that they're sonically interesting...

I see no reason why they can't perform an acoustic Zoo Station in the near future, given that Bottoms amounts to the same thing.

I've played Viva Davidoff a number of times but never actually heard it. Bottoms is a killer remix, however.

Bottoms is awesome, great alternate/instrumental version of Zoo Station. I like the different guitar and bass parts in the chorus, as well as that bridge section from Salome.

it's too bad.. while there are definitely stronger instrumental tracks in the u2 catalog, Viva is interesting and has some cool stuff going on.. it'd be effective in a film, or put to video

Neither.

It's Eno's home alarm system slowed way down.

It's both...

Bottoms (Watashitachi No Ookina Yume) (Zoo Station Remix): Music by Passengers (Brian Eno, Bono, Adam Clayton, The Edge, Larry Mullen Jnr.) Original recording produced by Daniel Lanois and Brian Eno. Engineered by Flood. Assisted by Shannon strong and Robbie Adams. Mixed by Brian Eno.

Viva Davidoff: Music by Passengers (Brian Eno, Bono, Adam Clayton, The Edge, Larry Mullen Jnr.) Engineered by Danton Supple. Assisted by Rob Kirwan. Source programming by Marius De Vries.

U2 play on both recordings. Music by Passengers.
