Original of the Species (Single Version, maybe)
All Because of You, probably in some remixed form
Get on Your Boots
Magnificent
I'll Go Crazy If I Don't Go Crazy Tonight
Window In the Skies
The Saints Are Coming
maybe the Sgt. Peppers performance with Paul McCartney at Live 8
+ some 2 new songs
U218 singles called. They want the majority of their tracklisting back.

Right? Because they've done this so many times.

A third Best Of would make sense in most circumstances...if not for U218.
U218 was a flat fucking joke. A total cash grab by Island/Universal.

They ought to wait and re-do all three and release them together at a decent price.
Do the 80's exactly as it was and add Gloria.
Do the 90's again, completely. Toss the crappy revisions and add Lemon (at least).
Do the 2000's properly with NLOTH material.
3 albums for a cheap price...digital downloads and hard copies.
Plus throw in a new concert DVD (say a second ZooTv show) to get the fans like all of us (who own everything already).

$29.99 or $34.99 or something in the ballpark.
I'd pay that for a (newly released) proper ZooTv show all by itself.

I'm still dumbfounded that we only got 40% of the Vertigo Milan show.
Come on, just give us the whole thing!

I was shopping today and I noticed a 2CD U2 Best of 1980-2000 (it's the single CD version of 80's and 90's Best of put together), officially labeled Universal/Island and dated 2009. When did that happen ?

I don't mind the single CD best of idea of but U218 was a weak execution, and they had to get out of a contract. Drop S. Thing and 2 of ATYCLB songs and add IWF, Discotheque and the Batman song instead. Problem solved. (it does drop October and anything off Zooropa but it would actually contain all the best known songs/hits)

80's U2 was fine, just swap October for Gloria. I liked the 90's, except I would swap SATS for Please and BD/Stuck for Stateless and Ground beneath her feet.

The 90s Best Of was terrible. The hopelessly out of place BD and Stuck on there, while two of their best songs, best known songs, (and singles no less) from the 90s in Lemon and the Fly are not? Then there's the terrible new Pop mixes... grrr...

Attacking U218 is fun and all, but, to be honest, it's the reason I started liking U2, so I can't attack it too much.

U2 18 was fine. As others have said it got them out of a contract and it basically promoted the U2 by U2 book. The tracklisting doesn't really bug me either, basically their 16 best-charting /most popular songs + two new songs for hardcore fans to buy it. Given there was no secret about how the tracklisting was coming about I don't really take issue with it.
