Not anything big, really. Just most of the original studio version, with the end of the single version edited in.

Works much better than either version alone.

What really bothered me I think, is that he acted like he was doing us a favor rewriting the song. I remember in interviews he acted like Native Son wasn't very good. When I finally heard it, I felt like U2 cheated me somehow.

I'm listening to the Star Wars soundtracks. What they are missing are tracks of Billy Dee Williams just speaking.

Phanan, that was better than i remembered

exactly. like i said before, i miss political U2. occasionally, they might sneak a political line in here and there, but it's not the same. they don't write stuff like btbs anymore. and yet, the world's just as fucked up (maybe even more so) than it was back then. it's not like it's all butterflies and unicorns now

even if you want to be an isolationist (wtf i forgot how to spell isolation) and just think about the u.s., we're pretty fucked up now. he could write a whole album about us. hell, plenty of other artists have.

John Williams must have been like, "George, we need more slap bass!"

Imagine America: Twenty Years Later as a concept for a U2 record.

I used to work with this guy, and his friend in Boston was a professional DJ. He called himself DJ Maul or something, and he used to make these mixes of Star Wars themes. Not a remix of the original Star Wars music, but dance/techno versions of them. He made a CD and gave a copy to this guy, who in turn burned me a copy. It's awesome.

I'm gonna have to dig that up.
