I would totally do it, but the company I've been using that supplies my credit card has gone under and now I have no credit card, and I don't want to apply for one at a bank. (I was using a prepaid credit card)

Besides my own dislike of it, I simply just don't think it fits anywhere in that tracklisting. You could possibly force it in around Slow Dancing, but I still feel it would sound out of place.

In my revised U2 history, I use it as a b-side. These are my Achtung singles:

1. The Fly/Night And Day/Night And Day (Steel String Remix)/The Lounge Fly Mix [October 1991]
2. Mysterious Ways/Salome/Lady With The Spinning Head (Extended Dance Remix) [November 1991]
3. Wild Irish Rose/One/So Cruel [March 1992]
4. Until The End Of The World/I Feel Free/Take You Down [June 1992]
5. Even Better Than The Real Thing/Tryin' To Throw Your Arms Around The World/Ultra Violet [August 1992]

Ah, that's shit. I don't need my own credit card, so I just have a dependent card on my mother's account and pay her back on the rare occasion that I actually need to use it (like ... once a month if that).

Hey all

Ended up getting my first filling ever at the dentist today...


And Axver if I do try to get a Band League going do you think the best way to start it would be with a thread where people suggest five or ten bands to be in it, then putting the ones that get the most suggestions in the highest league?

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 like that, but I'd want to put in Beautiful Ghost before Streets, and find a way to put in Walk To The Water somewhere... Thoughts?

1. Zoo Station
2. Until The End Of The World
3. The Fly
4. Even Better Than The Real Thing
5. Mysterious Ways
6. Lady With The Spinning Head
7. Where Did It All Go Wrong?
8. Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses
9. Slow Dancing
10. Wild Irish Rose
11. Alex Descends Into Hell For A Bottle Of Milk/Korova 1
12. Acrobat
13. Love Is Blindness
What the hell, I don't have Wild Irish Rose!

Yeah, I could do that I suppose... I feel better if it's my own or someone does it on my behalf, rather than risking my parents' card.

I'm guessing these are the ones you may not recognise?

Night And Day: Cole Porter cover, used on the Red Hot And Blue compilation. Steel String remix was on the One single.
Salome: EBTTRT b-side.
I Feel Free: Early UTEOTW on Axtung Beibi.
Take You Down: Axtung Beibi track that became The Fly, LWTSH, Ultra Violet, and also contains the lyric "wake up, wake up dead man".

Lucky bastard - I've had too many fillings. Well, I think six. Of which three were in the same tooth, since the first dentist botched it and I've had to get it redone twice.

Yeah, that's probably the best way to start it, since it would probably be the best way to ensure the competing bands are recognisable. Might be a good idea to get phanan's input too - he may have some good suggestions.
