well, even worse, they didn't even release the Saints are Coming video on the U218 video's DVD. It contains the live version from new Orleans. They kind of made up for that by releasing the video on the WITS DVD single, but it's weird that the U218 dvd doesnt have the video's for their last two singles.

I'm all for new material, I like the new stuff but if they do it, i'd like to see them do it right. And i'm not trying to be negative here. I love the tracklisting for the WITS singles. Great stuff.

The same reason they have two other versions of the single out

If all three tracks on the DVD single had been videos, maybe that would have contravened chart rules and discounted its sales?

so then it could have been a 4-track single with Window in both audio and video form.

Surely one or both videos will show up on iTunes in the next couple of weeks.

I think that chart rules state that a single can have a maximum of 3 tracks, and can't be over a certain length. (Hence Bad/Streets/40 bundled together I think)

I don't think that's true at all, unless there are some new rules. Plenty of U2's previous singles have had 4 or more tracks.

I've just checked http://www.theofficialcharts.com/doc...Rules_2007.pdf and I was wrong. The chart rules for the UK say no more than 4 tracks and no more than 25 minutes total. They also say 'Maximum of 2 video tracks permissible per format (subject to audio content)' so that maybe explains why there's only two videos, though it doesn't explain of course why Window in the Skies wasn't one of those videos.
