I don't know the answer to that, but it reminds me of how mind blowing it is to stop and reflect that Bad wasn't actually ever a single. I mean, Jesus. Though I guess it got some single-like exposure because of the big Live Aid moment.

Well, as a fan of a good alt tracklist, this is the UF I've used for years.

1. A Sort of Homecoming
2. The Three Sunrises
3. Boomerang II
4. Wire
5. The Unforgettable Fire
6. Promenade
7. Bass Trap
8. Bad
9. Indian Summer Sky
10. Love Comes Tumbling
11. Elvis Presley and America
12. MLK
13. Pride

I didn't want to break up Wire/UF, which I've always thought works well on the album, so pairing MLK/Pride thematically is a good option instead. It also solves the problem of Pride otherwise sticking out like a sore thumb. Putting it at the end means you build to it with MLK as an atmospheric link, and it's a big emphatic uplifting closer. I use it on the album in the same capacity as U2 used it to close the main set live for many years.

As for the albums without singles, obviously UF fares well because it had so few singles drawn from it anyway. Boy also still looks very strong. Pop suffers maybe a bit more than I expected, even with the criminal decision to never make Gone a single.

The live version from the Wideawake EP did get a lot of radio AirPlay. It still does to this day.

Ok, so I guess it was a quasi-single. Fair enough. Forgot about that little EP of theirs.

Ending an album with a song as poppy/catchy as Pride makes no sense to me whatsoever.

Also, I don't like MLK as a closer, but I do agree with Axver that it would work better as a segue into (or out of) Pride. Just not that far into the tracklisting.

Re: El Mel's list, I enjoy Disappearing Act well enough, but the 2000s-era vocals and lyrics render it unusable for a legit tracklisting.

7 - Bass Trap

9 - Elvis Presley and America
10 - Bad
11 - Yoshino Blossom
12 - Wire
13 - MLK

So I dug mine up after this one didn't seem quite right. I made up this tracklist when I was much more fresh with the music, I was kinda guessing on most of the one I posted earlier.

1 - A Sort of Homecoming
2 - Wire
3 - The Unforgettable Fire
4 - MLK
5 - Pride
6 - The Three Sunrises
7 - Promenade
8 - Bass Trap
9 - Bad
10 - Loves Comes Tumbling
11 - Yoshino Blossom
12 - Boomerang II
13 - Indian Summer Sky
14 - Elvis Presley and America

Elvis Presley may seem like an odd closer, but I love albums that are full circle and Elvis Presley was obviously born out of ASOH. And also, it is very hard to find a closer for this album.
I love The Three Sunrises, but because it is so clearly built to be an opener, it is hard to find a spot for it.

They're really silly, so much revisionist history and irrelevant opinion. Including songs that weren't remotely finished, or in many cases even written at the same time, with album tracks and pretending your imaginary tracklist is relevant? No thanks. Even if they're all from the exact same recording session, I don't see the relevance or appeal.

Every "alternate" tracklist ever: "Hey guyz, this album would have been better for me if it included all my favorite songs and didn't include my least favorite songs!" Really?! Genius!

Sounds upbeat ala The Crystal Ballroom. Also, Bono's Beach House is nice.

Yeah, they're down but I was able to catch one of them this morning. It was bouncy and very catchy, with Bono saying something like "I've got everything but still feel like nothing" or something along those lines. I liked it immediately.

These are the first beach clips I've ever listened to.

It's neither here nor there, it just is.
