I understand that...

Extra songs= B-sides!!!

You Can't Give Away Your Heart

(This might fit in another thread but since I couldn't find anything about it, and maybe not everyone wants to read all posts in all threads, so I decided to start a new one for it.)

Dutch music store Free Record Shop lists this song called "You Can't Give Away Your Heart" as #12 on all versions of NLOTH.

Have we heard/read something about this one before?

We don't usually get bonus tracks here, but who knows? Or mayby just on the special editions and FRS mixed it up for the standard version

No Line On The Horizon (Box + Dvd) - U2 - Free Record Shop


Oh and they also give 2 books with each album: a pocket version of U2 by U2 and a Dutch book about U2 & NL. The former is a FRS exclusive but the latter comes with the frst pressing only, and seemingly in all Dutch shops.
(Sorry if I've mentioned this before, can't remember.)

I've heard the title being mentioned in the past, but why would it go on the album I don't know.... strange

This was mentioned some time ago, and the thought was that they just pulled it off of a list (possibly from atu2.com) of old potential tracks. This song was mentioned in Spin a long time ago as a possible track for Bomb, but it never made it through. No sign that its inclusion as the bonus track is official yet...

So it had been posted already. Thanks.

FYI: The search function didn't return that post when I tried with the name of the song as keywords.
FYI 2: FRS and Van Leest are 2 Dutch music chains but have the same owner and it's usual for them to have the same information/selection of CD's.

Bands themselves, including U2, are to blame as well. 11 songs, 50 odd minutes at the most. Even this harks back to the limitations of vinyl.

That said, I still purchase CD's but to a large extent the world has moved on. Bonus tracks; seems very old fashioned to me.
PJ Harvey's latest album is like 30 minutes

Rob Zombie's albums tend to be around that mark too
