Yeah, both things happened, as I recall, but the meme spread from the 2006 incident.

Scattered thoughts on some posts from the previous pages:

The 'Crazy Tonight' remix never worked for me. Would have much preferred they just suck it up and do a Discotheque remix there. That happy, upbeat verse melody over a sinister minor-key bass groove just didn't work for me.

I maintain that 'Unknown Caller' would have been the 2nd best song on the album (Cedars remains my favorite) if they hadn't fucked with it. The clip that begins at 1:08:36 of this video from Daniel Lanois's Here Is What Is documentary of a work-in-progress version of Unknown Caller sounds much grander and, as a plus, has better (if basic) lyrics than the Apple-related nonsense that ended up on the album. Maybe it's just within the context of the documentary, immediately following Bono working out a melody on an unamplified guitar, but it also sounds as if the chorus is 'bigger' here. The version on the album falls flat. This one sounds huge.

I might get tomato'd for this, but "Fez" is just okay to me. It's atmospheric and all, but never goes anywhere as a song.

I never understood the hate for the studio version of EBW. It's my favorite track on SoI, which is an album I liked quite a bit.
