It really only hit me when I listened to the one and only live version.

So, so good. I agree that it should have been on Pop.

Oh that reminds me, I used to hear "your convent shoes" as "your covered Jews"

i was right, i just checked:
Quote:
The faint squiggly design in the background of the cover consists of several series of letters, which spell out the titles of songs that were written at the time of Zooropa but didn't make the the album. In order of appearance: "Wake Up Dead Man" (aWAKEUPDE), "The Wanderer" (this one, of course, is featured on the album)(ANWANDER), "Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me" (ISSMEKILLM) and "If You Wear That Velvet Dress" (ETDRESS) - all released at later stages. However, line 1 reads SINATRA.
they act almost like "sinatra" made no sense - that's the original title for two shots

Please on Pop is great. It's a favourite. BUT. I find it almost unlistenable compared to how fucking OUT OF THIS WORLD it was on Popmart. Please in Sarajevo gives me fucking chills every time and I'm going to play it after WUDM.

And If You Wear That Velvet Dress as a title suffers from the same problem as Stuck In A Moment You Can't Get Out Of, really. It sounds like a parody, what some n00by casual fan might think the title is, when it should actually be a rather obvious shorter version.


and yeah, as i said in eykiw, i'm not a fan of long song titles.

You're doing better than me, Mr Legally Blind. I can see letters, but can't see titles!

Admittedly, I haven't looked in a while.

there's letters on the cover of zooropa. they're pretty hard to read, though. it's all song titles, most of which aren't even on the album. i found a site once that pointed them all out for you, like circling them on the cover. but i can't find that site now.
