Personally, my alternate War subtracts Red Light and adds A Celebration and Treasure.
Ok, I thought I recognized the Angels title.

The fact that Treasure is not on War is a travesty, and A Celebration...wow how random that that song just turned into a single

Red Light would be better if Bono had gone through puberty.

War discussion, eh?

I like NYD, SBS, Seconds, DM, and The Refugee. The rest...meh. And I keep thinking I like Surrender, but what I really like is a snippet of Bad.

That's cool. A Celebration feels too much like October with the religious themes to me. Treasure actually sounds...too good for War I suppose would be one way to describe it. The energy of it seems to leave everything on War except maybe Like A Song in the dust. Do you know what I mean?

This, by the way, is my alternate War.

1. Sunday Bloody Sunday
2. A Celebration
3. Like A Song ...
4. The Refugee
5. Seconds
6. New Year's Day
7. Two Hearts Beat As One
8. Treasure (Whatever Happened To Pete The Chop?)
9. Drowning Man
10. Surrender
11. 40

Notes: A Celebration is a re-recorded version of the earlier single. It is 45 seconds longer and does not fade out.
[Unfortunately, this proposed version doesn't actually exist. Boooo.]

Yeah, Like A Song probably is the closest thing to Treasure, but it's a shame that Treasure isn't a widely known song. It's just so good, I mean, if A Celeb ration can come out of left field, it just feels like Treasure should've got something too.

Hey Reggo!

I definitely prefer Surrender live. It was a bit more raw and lacked the stupid backing vocals.

I agree with both of you. I suppose what holds it back, at least to the band, is that it is lyrically a pure stream of consciousness. But I think that's what gives it its value. It's just this sudden outpouring of emotion that you can't ignore.

As for A Celebration, I think it belongs more with War. It's very passionate, but I take it as more of War's political passion than October's religious passion. I mean, you see the religious themes worked into War's political passion too, e.g. SBS and LAS. Plus its thumping drums make it sound very logical after SBS.

Hi Ax!
Is it bad that I just realised NOW that your location is, well, a joke and impossible? *iz slow sometimes*

See, you have all the nice bootlegs. I just have the album tracks and I have to base my decisions on that. And let's face it. The album tracks are rarely the best versions of the songs.

I see your point. I know this is pretty anal but I really wish they had come up with a better title. I mean A Celebration sounds like a working title more than a released song title.

Oh, the trumpet's cheesy as hell. But Bono's pre-pubescent vocals and the irritating doo doo doo ladies are what really ruin the song.

So we're all in agreement, U2 and track selections = No
