As soon as I see more than one remix of a song, I just view it as throwaway...especially if it's a U2 remix :shudder:

But that doesn't make it any less likely that one day I'm just going to grab Bono by the shoulders, give him a good shake, nod, and walk away.
Assuming I can think straight if I ever meet Bono, I might try to ask him about that.

For the record, this is not likely.

Alison's brain vs. U2 = 0:2

That would probably be #4 on my U2 rankings, behind UF, JT, and my alternate Achtung. Maybe #5, since Passengers should also factor in the top four.

I'm very, very fond of this version of JT I made:

1. Where The Streets Have No Name
2. I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For
3. With Or Without You
4. Luminous Times (Hold On To Love)
5. Spanish Eyes
6. In God's Country
7. Bullet The Blue Sky
8. Running To Stand Still
9. Red Hill Mining Town
10. One Tree Hill
11. Exit
12. Mothers Of The Disappeared

I'd personally probably ditch ISHFWILF too. Sure, it's popular and you'd keep it on there if you were actually marketing the album, but I could live without it.
I can never figure out how I feel aobut ISHFWILF (btw, I always read that, for some inexplicable reason, as SHELLFISH) for a long long time I hated it, then I liked it for a while, then I couldn't care less. I think I'm back to liking it for now.

Most U2 remixes are crap but there are some good ones.

Did they ever release their own version of Mystery? I've heard them sing it at that Brooklyn Bridge thing, but like offic?

Yep. I can understand perhaps maybe having a different take on a song, to highlight some different aspect or whatever, though personally if a radio's not going to play a song in its original state or if it's not dancable enough for a club, then fuck them. But a single chockers with remixes is irritating and of no value. And while I enjoy singles with live b-sides fairly frequently, I'd prefer new songs as b-sides.

The Brooklyn Bridge live version has been officially released on ABOY, but the studio version hasn't. I have it, though (on DVD at Sun Studios).

Which reminds me...the 2nd discs for the rereleases of Boy, October, and War....man compared to TJT can you say ripoff?

Not a big fan of Room At The Heartbreak Hotel?

Shellfish...

I've done pretty much the same thing with all the singles from JT, and a lot of the other albums too. If I hear something too often (like if the radio plays it a lot), I get sick of it... and it can take a while before I can kinda hear it fresh again, and figure out if I like the song on its own merits or not.

I used to enjoy it. It was never a big favourite, but I wouldn't skip it. Now I'm just tired of it. So that's why I don't rag on it like some other songs - I can see why it's popular, I just don't think it has staying power.

Yeah, one new song and an unreleased studio version of another song for $90-100 worth of music.
